Why would order a Tuna melt out and pay $12 bucks for it when you can make it at home 10x better and healthier, best of all for under 2 bucks.
This is a short first round knockout recipe.
Let’s get started.
You will need 1 can of white albacore tuna in water not oil and Hellman’s mayonnaise. Drain all the water out of the tuna and mash the tuna with a fork until all the chunks are gone. Add about one to one and half tablespoons of mayonnaise to the tuna and combined. Add some salt and pepper to taste. A lot of restaurants put a whole drum of mayonnaise and salt in the tuna that they serve. I am sure it tastes amazing, but definitely not healthy. Let’s get back to the affordable healthy version. Take one 60 calorie flat, any brand works. Separate the flat in half and toast until golden. Remove the flat from the toaster and add the tuna to the toasted flats. Add a slice of sharp cheddar or Muenster cheese to each side and toast until the cheese is nice and melted.
I guarantee you that you won’t feel bloated after eating this amazing tuna melt. This Tuna melt recipe will cost you less than 2 bucks, if you have the ingredients at home. If you don’t it will cost more but you will be able to make multiple tuna melts, still cheaper and healthier then the restaurant.
