Melty Cheesy Goodness
My big sis requested some quick and easy meals she can make, so for now I'll post a tuna melt recipe. We happen to be having them on Tuesday so I was able to take some pics, but I promise to have more soon. Even though I love cooking, there is nothing better than a fast and cheap meal that you always have ingredients for. Wish I could take credit for this but it's all Phil's.
For the toppings:
2 Cans of tuna
2 Green onions, chopped
1-2 celery stocks, chopped
Tbs of capers or olives or both, chopped
1/4 Cup of artichokes in oil drained (optional), chopped
1 Large clove of garlic, minced
A little salt and pepper (maybe not so much salt if you're using the capers and olives)
Thin slices of tomato to spread on top
And a lot of cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 375-400F.
Cut a medium or large baguette length wise (or any type of bread). Mix all ingredients in bowl excluding the tomato. Top bread with mixture and place tomato slices on top. Toast in the oven for a few minutes, add grated cheese, let melt and you're done!
