Finicky Friday - Tuna Melt

Tuna melt

Tuna sandwiches don't seem like dinner, but tuna melts do. Basically, you're making a grilled cheese sandwich with a generous layer of tuna salad. It's just harder to turn over. So butter a piece of bread, put in the skillet, top with a spoonful of tuna salad, then slices of your favorite melting cheese. Put another piece of buttered bread on top. Push down with a spatula and grill till the bottom piece of bread is crusty. Carefully turn it over, cook until the second side is crusty and the cheese is melted. 

My Tuna Salad Recipe


12 oz white flaked tuna in water drained

1 stalk celery finely diced

3 tablespoon sweet pickle relish

3/4 cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon dijon

1 teaspoon lemon juice

salt & pepper to taste


Drain the tuna well. Albacore tuna has the freshest flavor, any brand will do as long as it’s packed in water. Put the tuna into a bowl and use a fork to separate the pieces.

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.

(I like tuna salad sandwiches, but I also like it on wheat bread or wheat crackers. Or, make a tuna melt!)
