I had some of that fancy bread left over from when I made the french toast, so I decided to put it to good use with this awesome sandwich.
I love tuna melts already, but I will never go back to the way I did them before – this was just too good. It is just a few extra easy ingredients, but they really add that extra flavor to make it so delicious!
This recipe can easily be either cut in half or double depending on who you are making it for.
4 cans tuna – drained
1/3 cup mayonnaise + extra for spreading
4 teaspoons capers – rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon oregano
4 slices of some delicious crusty bread
8 slices tomato
4 slices of your choice of cheese – I used Chedder, Provolone would also be really good.
Turn your oven onto the broil setting, and make sure the rack is set at the highest position.
In a small bowl mix together tuna, mayonnaise, lemon juice, capers, salt, pepper, and oregano.
I do realize that capers are a pretty obscure ingredient. I went for it just to get the full effect of the recipe – and I liked it, but I don’t think the recipe would be any less delicious if you want to leave them out.
Spread a little mayonnaise on the top of each slice of bread, top with tuna salad, two slices of tomato, and finally a slice of cheese.
Broil until cheese is bubbly – 3-5 minutes!
Enjoy! You will never go back to a plain old tuna melt again.
