A Tuna Melt is pure comfort food. It’s the easy recipe I like make for lunch or dinner when I don’t feel like cooking. If you’ve never had a tuna melt, you must try one.
Tuna Melts are generally served like open-faced sandwiches. Tuna salad gets spread over toasted bread, sprinkled with diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, and then placed under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly and delicious.
The 2 most important things to remember when making tuna melts:
- Add lots of finely chopped veggies in the tuna salad mix. The veggies add colour, crunch, flavour, and help to stretch a can of tuna further = more sandwiches!
- Toast the bread before it’s topped with tuna salad. It’s an extra, but important step. It stops the bread from becoming soggy.
Tuna Melt Tips:
- Toast the bread slices before assembling so that the tuna melts don’t end up soggy.
- Not only do the added veggies in the tuna salad add colour, texture and flavour, but it also makes the 2 cans of tuna go further = more sandwiches!
- Add lemon to the tuna salad to perk up the flavour and cut through the richness.
