Back in the day my grandmother used to make tuna melt sandwiches for me and my cousins. Now I’ll admit, I was not a fan. Something about warm tuna turned my stomach over and me off. But, as I’ve matured I’ve come to love that little kids meal. In fact, I made them just the other night.
Goose turned her nose up and had her tuna in a roll of lettuce (What? Lettuce over bread and cheese??? Sigh. She’s not my kid). But after listening to me make tons of this-is-the-best-thing-I’ve-ever-eaten noises, she asked for a bite…and then proceeded over to the stove to get her one of her own (Yea for bread and cheese!).
Whether you’re young or just slightly older than young, you’ll love these little sandwiches.
4 English muffins
2 large cans tuna
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
1/3 cup finely chopped onions
1/4 cup real mayonnaise (I just mix a bunch in until it looks good)
pepper to taste
8 slices of cheddar cheese
enough shredded Mozzarella to sprinkle on top
Layer tuna mixture, cheddar cheese, and mozzarella.
Place in over at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and tuna is warm.
