  1. I made these with toasted baquette and chives in place of scallions. I also cut back on the mayo a bit. They made for a great lunch with a salad and sliced oranges. Thanks! [Made for the I Recommend Tag]
  2. Other than I used salmon as we don't care for tuna I made as directed though I think I would cut back on the mayo as it was a little sloppy but the DM and I were absolutely chockas on 1 1/2 slices each and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. Thank you WaterMelon, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet Soup.
  3. This made a quick easy after golf lunch using things I had on hand. In place of the tuna I used a small can of salmon flavoured with red onion & tomato (95g can). This worked well and will certainly make again. Into the 'keepers' file for this one:)
  4. I enjoyed this. I left out the scallions, used regular white bread, and used sweet paprika cause that is what I had on hand. Thank you for posting this. I searched through maybe 15 pages of tuna melt and similar sort of recipes and I thought this one was the best. Simple and delicious.


Hi everyone! I'm addicted to recipezaar - there are so many things that I love about this site; the wonderful people, recipes, lots of great pictures and there's always someone who'll answer my cooking/baking/general question. I grew up in Malaysia, but now live in sunny Singapore. Both are beautiful tropical (read: HOT!) countries in Southeast Asia. There are so many good food here, especially ethnic stuff like spicy Malaysian curries (which will clear the worst blocked nose), flaky & crispy Indian roti paratha/canai, homey Chinese stir-fries, rich & decadent Asian desserts like kuih lapis (Malay many-layers cake), pineapple tarts, crumbly peanut cookies etc. <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/zaarfreak/REI/12may05REI2_S.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com">
