Place tuna melts on baking sheets and bake in 375 degree pre-heated oven for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Move baking sheet on the top oven rack, turn oven to BROIL and bake 2-3 minutes longer, until cheese is bubbly and browning. (Watch carefully not to burn the cheese)

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I usually make my tuna salad/tuna melts with sweet pickle. The dill was a very good change in my routine. I used a slice of cheese on top of the tomatoes and used toast instead of pita bread.

We enjoyed this on Naan flatbread and it was delicious! I didn't fold it over thus making it resemble a sort of pizza style lunch. Loved the combo of flavors. I used canned chunk light tuna packed in water. It made forna delicious lunch. Made for Billboard tag! Thanks for posting such a clever idea.

We enjoyed these very much, lots of flavour and was quite suprised that putting salsa and sour cream on top was delicious! Also i had no pitas in so i used tortillas folded over. will definately be making these again and will use the pitas next time and the mozzarella cheese, had to use sharp cheddar this time.  I used no fat sour cream.   Very good thanks !!
