A Kids Meal

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.

Tuna Melts
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

Cut muffins in half and place on baking sheet.

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.

Then just throw a side at it and enjoy!

  1. I love tuna melts, but I have never added anything to my tuna. I just plop it on a plate and add the cheese on top and melt. It looks delicious and it is lunchtime, I am drooling!

  2. Tuna melts are the bestest ever!! I could eat them again now. I always load my tuna down with “the good stuff”.. you know.. bigger is better.. I do debate on eggs though. I put hard boiled eggs in my tuna salad.. and I sometimes throw a hand full of cheese over my scrambled eggs.. but boiled eggs and melted cheese??? I don’t know about that.
