Friday: Tuna Melts and Veggies


It's Tuna Melt Day!


This recipe is so super easy and it's great to use as a stand-by. As meal plans often go, things come up during the week and you may not have the time to prepare and cook a meal you had planned. If that happens, tuna melts are a quick fix!

For this recipe you need:



1/2 cup mayonnaise (more or less to taste), 1 can tuna, cheddar cheese (sliced or shredded), white or wheat bread.

Step 1: Mix tuna and mayo together (I usually just add a dollop or two until I get it to the consistency I wanted.



Step 2: Heat up your oven to 350 degrees.

Step 3: Put Mayonnaise or butter on both slices of bread



Step 4: Put tuna mixture and cheese on bread and add to pan




Step 5: Heat until bread is crispy and cheese is melted (about 8 minutes).

Step 6: Cut and enjoy! Add tomato or lettuce if you have it stocked in the fridge already and you've got a great dinner. Also- you can add cold carrots and celery- yum!







This is a pretty basic recipe for tuna melts. I would love to hear some of your recipes for this meal.


Post a comment and let me know what you do to jazz up your tuna melts!
