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.

- 2 English muffins, sliced in half (horizontally)
- 6 ounces tuna fish
- 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise, Hellmann's
- 2 tablespoons celery, chopped
- 1 tablespoon onion, chopped
- 4 slices tomatoes
- 4 slices cheese
- 4 slices onions (optional)
- 2 pickles, Claussen, quartered
- In a medium bowl, mix tuna, mayonnaise, celery, onions, and pepper.
- Toast the English Muffins.
- Divide the tuna salad into four equal portions (about 2 Tbs. each).
- Spread each muffin half with one portion of the tuna salad.
- Cover with sliced onion, sliced tomato, and top it off with a slice of American cheese.
- Place the tuna melts in a microwave and melt the cheese, or place it in an oven proof dish and melt them in the oven.
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! :)
