Just ask my coworkers…nine times out of ten, I will order a tuna melt when we go out to lunch. It’s one of my favorites. I had to try this recipe when I realized that it is an open-faced sandwich and it has double cheese! Just add some chips and a pickle spear and you have a great lunch or light dinner.

Ingredients:
2 cans (5 oz each) solid white tuna in water, drained
1/ cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp. red wine vinegar
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. freshly ground pepper
4 slices rye bread
8 slices Swiss cheese
8 slices tomato

Directions:

  1.  Set oven control to broil.
  2. In medium bowl, mix tuna, mayonnaise, celery, onion, parsley, vinegar, salt and pepper.
  3. Place bread slices on baking sheet. Broil with top about 4 to 6 inches from heat 1 minute or until lightly toasted.
  4. Turn bread over on baking sheet.
  5. Spread the untoasted side of each slice of bread with about 1/3 cup of the tuna salad, 1 slice of the cheese, 2 slices tomato and 1 of the remaining slice cheese.
  6. Return sandwiches to oven; broil 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  7. Serve hot.

  • I used wheat bread instead of rye (personal preference), but I think that the rye would have held up better to the heavy sandwich.

Yield: 4 servings
