Expert Tips

This tuna melt is the best! When I saw the double layer of cheese, I just had to give it a try. This is unique. The layer of cheese melted over the top engulfs the tuna salad and keeps it in place. What a great dish to serve while watching a football game. You and your guests will love it. I doubled this recipe and substituted white bread. It made a total of eight sandwiches.
