French Bread Tuna Melt
I love tuna melts, so it’s no surprise I love the French Bread Tuna Melt. Or maybe it’s I just love melts. Don’t you? They’re easy to make, yummy to eat. Win Win! I made some Tuna Melt Sliders before, if you want to copy my tuna salad recipe, go check it out.
Tuna is good for you. Shh…don’t mention it’s on bread or with cheese. We can just overlook that part. It’s like my hubs says….”Mountain Dew is good for you because there is orange juice in it.” He can come up with reasons why all of his foods are good for him in one way or another just because one ingredient is. So, we’re using his philosophy with this.
All you have to do is make your version of tuna salad. Slap it on the bread and throw some cheese on it. Bake it a few minutes and you have a tuna melt. It took me 11 minutes from start to finish. These melts could be used as a snack, appetizer or in my case….dinner.
If using this recipe as a lunch or dinner, the serving size is 2 tuna melts.
Do you have something you tell yourself is good for you when you really know it’s not?
