So simple and so good! As suggested, I served them with bowls of soup for a light supper when I was simply out of energy to do any complicated cooking. DH had never had a tuna melt before and was quite impressed with it. I added a little light mayo to the tuna, omitted the artichokes, threw in a few capers, spread it on whole wheat muffins and topped with cheddar cheese. Yummy! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
Oh. My. Gorsch! This was so incredibly good--and I don't generally gush over Tuna Melts! We used provolone cheese--of course,anything with provolone is exquisite--but I'd like to make these again with cheddar, too. And we used regular, run-of-the-mill tuna, left out the cayenne, and used less lemon and more olive than called for (being not-so-keen on the lemony tang). I cannot believe how GOOD this was. Will definitely be making again! *January 2008 Photo Swap*
