Best-Ever Tuna Melt

Best-Ever Tuna Melt


Meet your ultimate sandwich. With just the right amount of crunch cheddar cheese, and a couple slices of tomato, you might even convert a tuna hater.
  • ⅓ c. mayonnaise
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 2 (6-oz.) cans tuna
  • 1 ribs celery, finely chopped
  • 2 dill pickles, finely chopped
  • ¼ c. finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 slices bread, such as sourdough
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 8 slices cheddar
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes (if using).
  2. Drain tuna then add to mayonnaise mixture. Use a fork to break up tuna into flakes. Add celery, pickles, red onion, and parsley and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Top an unbuttered side with approximately ½ cup of tuna salad, 2 to 3 slices tomato, and 2 slices of cheese. Top with another slice of bread, buttered side facing up. Repeat with remaining ingredients and place on a large baking sheet. Bake until cheese is melty, 4 to 5 minutes.
