Simple Tuna Melt

Simple Tuna Melt

Ready in 10 minutes

Ahh, the simple pleasures of a tuna-melt. I like high-end fussy food a lot of the time, but there are times that I enjoy a good old fashioned tuna-melt. So sue me.

"Made this tomight for dinner. I added salt, pepper, lemon juice, chili powder and worchestershire to the tuna mayo mixture. I also served it with a piece of lettuce and provolone cheese instead of american. I think my tuna mix was a little too mushy because it was coming out the sides of the sandwich like a sloppy joe would, but it was very yummy."

Servings  

Preparation

Preheat the broiler.

Toast the bread in a toaster. (Toasting ahead of time makes the bread crunchy.)

Mix the mayonnaise and tuna to your taste. Spread on the bread, open-faced. Add your favorite meltable cheese. Broil 3-4 inches under the broiler for 3-4 minutes. Watch carefully, and take it out before it turns black. Delicious!

Good when you add a slice of tomato under the cheese. My kids have loved this for years!

Very bland. Also from the looks of the reviews it was in need of extra flavor. I recommend chopped onion and cream cheese.

I made this with shredded colby cheese. I added mayo, salt, pepper, and a bit of Greek dressing to the tuna. It was amazing!!

Great and simple. First time I made tuna melt using this recipe, and loved it.

So simple! I used canned chicken because that is what I had. My first batch was too close to the broiler and actually caught on fire after the first minute. My second batch, I moved the rack down one notch, but was done only after a minute. So make sure you watch it!
