Tuna Melts

Yes, this is another Tuna recipe in the same month but honestly, it was on sale really cheap and I stocked up a while back. I have to clean out the pantry before the canned tuna goes off...all twenty seven cans of it. Hey, I have a big family to feed. One can just doesn't cut it.

So, here's another almost-not-really a recipe since it's so darn simple but here you go anyway because I like to share. Enjoy.

Tuna Melts


3 cans of tuna
approx 1/4 cup Dukes Mayo
2 Tbs Dill
1 Tbs White pepper
1/2 Tbs Onion powder
1/2 Tbs Garlic powder
4 full English Muffins
8 slices of Asiago cheese (1 for each 1/2 English Muffin)


- Seperate each muffin and place outside down on a nonstick cookie sheet (so the nooks and crannies are facing up). Preheat oven to 350.

-Mix tuna, seasonings and mayo together. Taste as you go and adjust to your liking.

-Spoon and spread into a thick layer on each muffin half. Top with a slice of cheese. It's okay if it overlaps, it's yummy that way.

-Cook for 10 minutes then blast them with 1-2 min. of High under the broiler to brown the cheese a bit.

That's it! Next time I'll be making more of these since the 8 halves barely fed us all. They're super yummy and the kids loved them, Livi had two. Other than the cheese and muffins it's pretty much a pantry meal which is great. Keep the items on hand for when you're pressed for time but need something hearty. We served ours with carrot sticks and watermellon. Complete meal in about 20 minutes.
