    JanieTeachGal's Note:

    This is sort of a combination of some of the recipes that I've seen on 'Zaar. I adapted it to what I had on hand. DH was pretty skeptical, but he warned to the idea after first taste.

    1. 1
      Prepare the tuna salad by combining tuna, mayonnaise, relish, celery salt, onion salt, and black pepper. Taste and season again, if necessary.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, toast three slices of bread. (I used Mrs. Baird's Acti-Fiber bread and 2 slices of Honey Wheat bread for DH; really this is a go-with-your-favorite option.) Toasting the bread is extremely important! Don't skip the step.
    3. 3
      Place toast on a cookie sheet. Spread tuna salad on each slice.
    4. 4
      Top each piece of toast with 2 slices roma tomato. Grind fresh black pepper over each slice.
    5. 5
      Cover with cheese. DH used American singles, and I used Pepper Jack. Both were great!
    6. 6
      Set oven to Broil with rack around six inches from the burner. Broil the sandwiches until cheese is "melty and bubbly." Don't turn your back on the oven--the sandwiches go from melty and bubbly to black and burnt in a snap!
    7. 7
      We served this with barbecue potato chips and yogurt for dessert.

      This was good. I toasted my bread a little too much so it was pretty crunchy once I put it in the broiler but the flavor was really good. I used mozzerella on one and american on the other and both were yummy! I also chopped some sweet jalapenos in place of the sweet relish to give it a little kick! Great recipe Janie!!

      This went down a treat. The celery salt made for really great flavour. I used a mix of low-fat mozzerella and jarlsberg. Num nums! Thank you Janie!

      Quick and easy for a nice lunch. I made our melts with swiss and muenster cheese. Loved the way the cheese melted over the tomato under the broiler. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
