Tuna Melts are a quick high-protein meal, using canned tuna! It comes together in minutes and is the perfect crispy and cheesy combo.
3 (5-oz.) cans of tuna, drained
1 avocado, mashed
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp chopped pickles
1-2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
6-8 slices of bread
2 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
In a bowl, stir together the tuna, avocado, mayonnaise, pickles, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Toast bread in a toaster to prevent it getting soggy (optional).
On a foil-lined baking sheet, spread out the slices of bread and spread the tuna mixture on top of each slice of bread. Top with tomato slices and cheese.
Broil on high heat in the oven until the cheese is melted (about 5 minutes). Make sure to watch it carefully so it doesn't burn.
Serve warm with sliced bell peppers or baby carrots!
This recipe makes 6-8 open-faced tuna melts. You could turn this into sandwiches by adding additional slices of toasted bread on top of each melt after broiling.
