These tuna melts make a great lunch for kids, or serve them for the family dinner with fries and pickles and extra sliced tomatoes or a tossed salad. They really are a delicious change of pace!

Ingredients:

  • 4 English muffins, split and lightly toasted
  • 1 can or package (6 to 7 ounces) white tuna in water, drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 thin slices tomato
  • 8 slices yellow or white cheese, Cheddar, Monterey Jack, or American
  • sliced green onion and freshly ground pepper for garnish

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350°.

Arrange the split muffins on a cookie sheet which has been lined with foil or a silicone baking mat.

In a medium bowl, combine tuna with celery, 2 to 4 tablespoons green onion, and mayonnaise; blend all ingredients well. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon tuna mixture evenly over the muffins. Top each sandwich with a thin slice of tomato. Bake for 8 minutes; top with cheese slices then bake for about 2 minutes longer, or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle each sandwich with green onion and a freshly ground black or seasoned pepper.
Serves 4 to 8, depending on appetite and whether they are served at lunch or dinner.
