Tuna Melts

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Suburban Grandma

This is a very quick and tasty way to turn simple can of tuna fish into a warm meal for dinner, lunch, or snack. I like to have a kosher pickle (or Claussen pickle) to crunch on with these tuna melts.

An old favourite of mine! The ingredients were the perfect amount for this recipe. I would typically use more mayo, but it didn't really need it! I used fresh chives for the onions and wasn't sure what to do with the pickles, so I just served them on the side! I forgot the tomato (oops!) and used cheddar for the cheese. Made for my adopted chef for Fall PAC 2009. Thanks Grandma! :)
