Cheesy Tuna Melts!

So sorry for the lack of posts recently, just been so busy, especially with exams and what not coming up.

Anyway, even with my busy schedule, I’d thought I would give you all a simple and quick dish for when you want something quick and filling at the same time.

We’re going with the classic ‘Tuna Melts’. Yes, I know! How exciting can a tuna melt get? Well, if you know anything about me by now (or even if you don’t…which you should >.<), I usually have some sort of personal twist to whatever I make, which I am going to share with all you guys.

So here goes!

3)      (Optional) Personal twist: Add a few dollops of mustard and some sesame oil and mix it all up thoroughly.

  • As the ingredients above suggested, add whatever BS you fancy into it. Literally anything you can think of or have at your fingertips, you never know, it may turn out tasting fantastic!

4)      Toast your bread to your desired crunchiness.

  • If they are buns, e.g. Ciabatta, slice them in half like you would if making a sandwich and toast them.

5)      Remove toast from toaster and butter the side you would put your tuna on.

6)      Next, throw as many dollops of tuna as you want onto your toast and spread evenly over the whole thing ensuring that no bits of the bread can be seen, otherwise it might burn.

7)      Sprinkle, Slice, Grate, Throw or whatever way you want, your cheese over the top of the tuna.

  • If you want you can lightly season with some extra salt and pepper on the cheese.

8)      Place all of it onto your tray and stick it under a grill to melt the cheese.

  • If you can’t be asked to use a grill or don’t have one, just put it all on a plate and throw it into the microwave until it is all melted.

9)      Once all is melted, remove from the grill (and remember to turn it off), Serve and Enjoy!
