Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cut out rounds of bread with a 2 1/2-inch pastry cutter to make 20 croutes - you should get 2 rounds per slice of bread. (Use the off-cuts to make bread crumbs.)

Step 2

Lay the bread rounds on a baking sheet and brush with melted butter. Bake in a preheated oven 180-degrees Celsius / 350-degrees Fahrenheit, Gas 4, for 10 minutes until crisp and golden.

Step 3

Mix the tuna with the remaining ingredients.

Step 4

Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Place 1 heaped tsp of tuna mixture on each croute, making sure you spread the mixture to the edges of the bread so it doesn't burn when broiled.

Step 6

Place the croutes on to a baking sheet and broil (grill) for 2 - 3 minutes until slightly brown and just beginning to melt. Serve warm.

This was really good...my Mom's favorite thing to order when we went to lunch was a tuna melt...she kept telling me to try it...No...it didn't really sound good to me...so when I saw this I thought it's about time...so in her honor I gave it a try...because they are small melts...anyway...I really liked it...the hubby gave it 4 stars...me 5 stars...maybe because I was amazed that I liked it...I didn't have any lemons to grate so just added a splash of lemon juice...I served it with a nice egg salad sandwich for a tasty lunch...Made for "Best of 2021" tag game...

Easy and good! We enjoyed these melts and the only change I made was using American Cheese. Next time I will make sure we have cheddar. Thanks for sharing!

This are delicious little gems. The addition of lemon zest was enjoyed by all of us. It added such a fresh flavor.
