Tuna Melt

A tuna melt is a simple and delicious option that you can make differently every time you make it if you want to! There are so many variations, from an open sandwich to closed. What kind of cheese or bread you choose to use can vary depending on your preferences as well. The one thing that stays the same no matter how you make this delectable sandwich is that it will always cost less if you make it at home for yourself! Enjoy this yummy, simple, affordable sandwich for your next meal, and enjoy!

Tuna melts are an inexpensive option that will cost you around $6 to make at home, and only because prices have inflated so much recently, but if you order it at a diner you will have to pay more than double! Save money and enjoy this delicious sandwich on budget!

Tuna Melt Ingredients

  • Bread (Your choice of the type, we used a multigrain bread this time.)
  • Tuna (canned in water or oil, your choice)
  • 1tbsp of mayonnaise (more or less to taste)
  • 1-2slices of cheese (to taste)(The type of cheese you choose is your preference. We used American cheese this time.)

Let’s get started making your tuna melt!

  • First, put one slice of cheese onto each piece of bread.
  • Toast the bread until the cheese is melted. You can choose how much to toast the bread depending on how well-done you prefer your toast.
  • Open the can of tuna and drain the water/oil it is in. Put the tuna in a bowl and mash it with a fork before adding anything else to it.
  • Next, mix in the mayonnaise. Mix and mash with the fork until you get to the consistency you want. This is a personal preference. Some people prefer smoother tuna to others.
  • Then, take the bread with cheese and put the tuna on.
  • Close your sandwich and you’re done!
  • **Some prefer an open sandwich and warm tuna. If that is the case, wait to toast the bread until the tuna is ready, then add the tuna, add the cheese on top, and toast for an easy-open sandwich.**

There is so much variety, even with a simple sandwich! You can choose to add other options to your tuna as well such s celery, bacon bits, etc. Many people, including myself, like veggie tuna, which we will be making for you soon, so we can have the age-old debate of “raisins or no raisins.” There is no wrong answer as long as you enjoy your tuna melt!
