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!


  1. I just wrote this recipe down and am going to impress my family with them (especially my dad because he loves tuna melts the most).

  2. That looks amazing! I think I'll make that for Shaun this weekend.. credit will be due to Phil of course!

  3. This is what we are going to have for dinner tonight. I have a feeling Phil's Tuna Melts are going to be famous in our household. They look wonderful and the ingredients will add a surprising zip, I think! Will let you know how they turned out.
