Oven Baked Tuna Melts


For each sandwich:

  • 2 slices bread
  • 1 slice of cheese (I'm partial to cheddar, but pick your favorite!)
  • tuna salad
  • Butter


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  • Make your tuna salad if you haven't already (I use lots of pickles, just a little mayo and onion.)
  • Butter one side of each slice of bread.
  • Put 1 slice of bread butter side down on a cookie sheet.
  • Put the tuna salad on top of the bread.
  • Top the tuna salad with cheese.
  • Top the sandwich with the other slice of bread, butter side up.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, then flip.
  • Bake for 4-6 more minutes.
  • Keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t get too done. Ovens will vary!
