How do you make a tuna melt?
With what kind of cheese? And do you make it in the toaster oven or on the stove-top in a fry pan? Do you add herbs or tomatoes?
ok...parmesan cheese,toaster oven,add herbs and tomatoes!!!!!!!
2 slices French bread (you can use Italian bread, Sour Dough or Oatmeal Bread my favorite)
Sliced Swiss cheese
Butter or margarine
Start the Tuna Melt with slice of bread, Swiss cheese then the tuna salad, another slice of Swiss cheese, then the sliced tomato.
Butter a slice of bread and lay it on top of the sandwich with the buttered side facing up.
Put sandwich in pan on medium heat. Make sure you put butter side down in the pan. Butter bread that’s facing upwards. Cook for a few minutes until nicely browned, flip sandwich over and cook on the other side until it’s browned. Remove from pan and it is ready to eat and enjoy.
Yummy...whip up your favorite tuna and let it sit out so it is not too cold! Take your favorite bread, I used to prefer an English muffin, toast it first (that is the key to crispy bread!), spread some mayo on each side, maybe a little salt and pepper, lay on a good amount of tuna, place a slice of tomato on each half, then on top of that a slice or two of your favorite cheese. Place it under the broiler set on low, not too close to the flame!! Watch it for about 1 to 2 minutes. It will be done when the cheese melts. Serve open faced!!! I am on a low protein diet and this is one of the things I miss the most!!!!!! Enjoy one for me! or maybe two!
This method isn't low-calorie or low-cholesterol, but it's a pretty standard method and makes a good tuna melt:
Make them in the skillet, using either wheat bread, white bread, country white bread, or sliced Italian bread.
Make a sandwich using either plain tuna or a basic tuna salad.
Add a slice of Swiss, American, or Cheddar cheese.
Optional: Add some onions, tomato slices, celery, and/or dill cubes.
For even toasting, melt a little margarine or butter in the pan, and toast one side. If necessary add a little more margarine or butter before toasting the other side. A standard "pat" of margarine/butter will make a fairly greasy sandwich, adjust how much you use accordingly. Just melt the butter enough that it will coat the side you're going to toast evenly. Adding the margarine/butter in small pieces, rather than a single pat, helps it coat the bread evenly without having to leave a larger pat so long it starts to burn.
For a cheese-toast kind of exterior, shake in some Parmesan cheese while the butter/margarine is melting before placing each side of the sandwich on the pan for toasting. (Shake a little more Parmesan cheese before turning the sandwich to toast the second side.)
By keeping it out in the hot sun. Here in NC it's been over 90 degrees and humid! That'll make anything melt, including me.
Well, tuna are hard bastards.You could write them a poem, or send them flowers. What about a box of chocolates?
Make a tuna-mayo-sweetcorn-onion mix in a bowl...
Butter some fresh bread
Smoother the bread in the tuna mix
Add your cheese of choice...
Put under the grill
When the cheese is brown on the edges and bubbling...
Its a Tuna Melt!
Toast your bread, then spread tuna salad over the toast. Then lay your cheese on top. I like sharp cheddar. You can also use mild cheddar, white cheddar, american, or white american, or any cheese you like except for feta cheese. It doesn't melt nice. I normally put parsley on it. I don't personally care for tomatoes on a tuna melt, but if you like it, you can add tomatoes. Then put it under the broiler or in the microwave until the cheese has melted. Enjoy!

What happens if you don't include the margarine/butter in the muffin mix?I forgot to add the margarine to a premade muffin mix. They're currently in the oven. Will there be a big difference?
