Food Post Friday: Tuna Melts


I've been swapping time in the kitchen for time outside in the sunshine lately, resulting in numerous meals of quickie sandwiches and salads over the past few weeks. I had been struggling to find recipes for these posts, but it occurred to me this week that while almost everyone has probably made a tuna melt at some point in their lives they probably haven’t done so the way Jackson and I do. Check it out!

What you’ll need:

  • A slice or two of your favourite bread

  • One can of tuna, drained

  • One or two dill pickles, diced

  • One red pepper, diced

  • A handful of pickled pepper rings, chopped

  • A handful of manzanilla olives, sliced

  • Mayo (optional), spicy mustard, and dill (all to taste)

  • Cheese! As much or as little as you like and whatever kind you prefer. (I used Havarti.)

What you’ll do:

  1. Drain the tuna and mix together with pickles, peppers, olives, mayo mustard, and dill. Spread on as many pieces of bread as you like and top with cheese.
  2. Bake in a 350° oven for about 15 minutes
  3. Optional: broil that bad boy until the cheese is all bubbly and starts to brown
  4. (Quick & Easy) Nom
