Toasty Tuna Melts

Thanks for visiting! If you like this post, please don’t forget to give it a thumbs up!

I’m not really the biggest tuna fan.  Which is why you have only seen one post on here involving tuna – and that one post was only because Grumpy wanted Tuna Noodle Casserole.  I’m not sure what it is about it that makes it not my favorite.  IF I eat a tuna sandwich, it is usually only half a sandwich and then I have to have potato chips sandwiched in between the bread and tuna.  Every once in a while I will feel like eating a tuna melt.  Today was one of those days.  Snowed in for day #2 from work, it took me three trips to finally have the driveway where it needed to be and finally, during my 3rd trip out there the guy with the snowblower showed up.  Nothing like feeling like your wasting your unexpected time off where you would like to accomplish something other than waiting for the snow removal people to show up….just so you can finish up and make it look even better after they leave.  I know my neighbor can feel my pain.  ;o)

So, while this tuna melt is nothing fancy, it was lunch and it was filling and it was good (gasp-did I just say that?!)  Do you have a food that you will feel like eating once in a while even though it is not your very favorite?

(In case your wondering – yes.  I did dirty two plates just to take photos of a tuna melt.  Grumpy tells me that I’m the only person he knows who is willing to dirty dishes that you aren’t even going to eat from!  LOL)

    All my years, I have loved tuna with melted cheese. I just finished a good dinner and I want to return to the kitchen and make this.

    Would you link it up to Let's Do Brunch. This is a perfect dish to serve at a brunch. Thanks for considering it.

    That was strange seeing your post today… I've had tuna melts three days in a row (I've never had them until I had one at a hospital cafeteria, and it was the ONLY thing that looked edible) But… I've never seen one made this way. What a great idea!
