Gio's All-American Tuna Melt
The tuna melt is a humble sandwich. After all, its main ingredient can be found in most pantries. It's perfect for lunches on the go, and for dreary autumn evenings paired with a steaming bowl of soup.
Our tuna melt is hunger-filling and heart-warming.
American Canned Tuna is not your generic canned tuna, and it transforms this humble recipe into a hearty, gourmet meal. I made my own healthier substitutions, using yogurt instead of mayonnaise, and adding flavorful fresh herbs.
American Canned Tuna and i love blue sea. Thinking outside the can.
1 can American Tuna, keep the juices in! (With no additives, it's too good to go down the drain!)
½ shallot, minced
1 small jalapeño pepper, minced (optional)
1 Tablespoon plain yogurt
½ Tablespoon lemon juice
½ Tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 slices whole wheat or multigrain bread
4 slices tomato
2 slices provolone or mozzarella cheese
Combine tuna, shallots, jalapeño, yogurt, lemon juice, dill, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.
Spread half of the tuna mixture on each slice of bread. Top each slice of bread with 2 tomato slices and 1 slice of cheese.
Place open-faced sandwiches on a baking sheet and broil until lightly browned and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes. Serve.
