Low Carb Tuna Melt

Recipe by Amy Duchesne
READY IN: 15mins




  • Mix the can of tuna with mayonnaise, salt and pepper and any other herbs or seasonings you`d like to add, walnuts taste good in it too- Be creative and have fun with it.
  • Put tuna mixture aside.
  • Cut a slice of your tomato and set aside.
  • Over medium- low heat, sauté the sliced mushrooms in olive oil until slightly crisp- I sometimes add left over chicken or a slice or 2 of bacon to the sauté for variety.
  • Once the mushrooms are sautéed arrange them into a tidy little circle and place the tuna and mayo mixture very carefully onto the center of the mushroom platform- If you haven`t realized by now-- the mushrooms replace your bread.
  • Then place the tomato slice on top of the tuna and mayo, top it all off with cheese, reduce heat slightly, and cover for 1 minute or until the cheese is melted.
  • Carefully, with the aid of a flexible spatula, slide the tuna melt onto your plate- or a leaf of lettuce on your plate and enjoy.
  • Only 3 and a half carbs for the whole meal-- and it`s filling.
  • You can use other types of cheese and mushrooms or even more tomato, but take the carbs into account- some cheeses are higher than others and the same for veggies too.
