    LadyAngel1124's Note:

    I felt like having tuna melts tonight, but didn't want just the same old stuff. (I usually just go for tuna, mayo and lots of black pepper.) This is what I came up with, and it was pretty darned tasty, if I do say so myself. Hope you like it too! (Note: Prep and Cooking times are approximate...I didn't time mine, so I had to guess.)

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (6 ounce) can tuna, drained (I used chunk light tuna in water because that's what I had on hand, but use your favorite.)
    • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (more or less, to taste. I used Hellmann's Light.)
    • 3 tablespoons fresh salsa (more or less, to taste.)
    • ground black pepper, to taste
    • 2 -4 slices bread, toasted. (I used whole wheat this time, but English muffins, sandwich flats or pita bread would also work well)
    • 2 -4 slices American cheese (or your favorite melting cheese)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Toast your bread until it is light golden brown. (If it gets too dark during this step, the edges will burn when you put it in the oven/toaster oven later.).
    2. 2
      Drain excess liquid from the salsa if it is very juicy. Otherwise, the tuna mixture will be too runny, and the toast will become soggy.
    3. 3
      While the bread is toasting, mix the tuna, mayonnaise and salsa in a small bowl.
    4. 4
      Spread some of the tuna mixture on each piece of toast.
    5. 5
      Place slices on a foil-lined pan in the toaster oven and heat until tuna mixture is warmed through, about 3-5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Top each piece with a slice of cheese, and put back in oven until cheese is melted.
    7. 7
      Enjoy!

      Made for Spring PAC 2013 & I must say this recipe surprised me. While I like all the ingredients used, I thought the combo of them was a bit strange & I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. I don't have a toaster-oven & didn't want to heat my big oven, so I microwaved them until the blend of cheddar & Jack cheese looked melted. Other than adding a few thin strips of red onion, they were made exactly as written & enjoyed w/fruit as a easy-fix lunch. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

      Really good and couldn't get much easier! I used whole wheat bread and tried it once without pre-toasting which I do not recommend - much better if you don't skip that step :) I don't have a toaster oven so used the regular oven at 350F for 6 minutes. Thanks for sharing! [Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef]

      Made this for 2 of us & used 2 thick slices of a nutty, whole grain bread, & seasoned it all with lemon pepper! Easy to make & very satisfying! Definitely something we'd enjoy another time, too, so will be keeping the recipe around! Many thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
