Tuna Melts

I thought tuna sandwiches were pretty basic, and that tuna melts were fairly common.  But then I realized that some people like their tuna "wetter" than others (using lots more mayo than I was used to using), and that some had never heard of open-faced tuna sandwiches with melted cheese.  So, here's a recipe for ya.  In case we're not on the same page ;)

  • 2 (7 oz) cans tuna, drained
  • 1/4 - 1/2 c. mayonnaise (or equal parts plain yogurt and mayo)
  • 2-4 T. chopped dill pickles
  • 1/2 celery stalk, minced -or- 1/4 t. celery seed
  • 2 T. dried onion, rehydrated
  • lemon pepper seasoning, to taste
  • garlic salt/powder, to taste
  • salt, to taste
  • 6-8 slices of favorite bread, toasted
  • shredded cheese
     Combine all ingredients but bread and cheese.  Spread tuna mixture on bread slices and top with cheese.  Broil for a few minutes until cheese is melted.  Serve with soup, french fries or fresh fruit.
