1/2 Photos of Open Face Tuna Melt Sandwich
C. Taylor's Note:
These have become a quick dinner staple. They are sooo good, and comes together in minutes. You can change the type of cheese, but I've found that something with a stronger flavor that melts well, is best. The type of bread I use is called Saloio and is similar to Ciabbata (Saloio is a portuguese bread readily available at our supermarket bakery).
My Private Note
