Two Bite Tuna Melt

Spread the toast with a layer of mustard for a spicier sandwich, or add a slice of tomato for juicy sweetness. This tuna melt can also be made with rye or white sandwich bread.

Two Bite Tuna Melt

Source: Comfort Food


  • 1 demi baguette, cut in half lengthwise
  • Mayonnaise, for spreading (optional)
  • 2 recipes Tuna Salad
  • 4 leaves fresh basil, thinly sliced (optional)
  • Monterey Jack or white cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces), thinly sliced


  1. Set a rack in the top third of the oven, and heat the broiler.

  2. On a cookie sheet, toast bread halves under the broiler until lightly golden on both sides. Transfer to a work surface.

  3. Spread bread with mayonnaise, if using. Top each half with tuna salad and a single layer of cheese.

  4. Return the open-faced sandwiches to the cookie sheet, and broil, watching carefully, until the cheese is completely melted, about 1 1/2 minutes. Cut each piece of bread in half for four sandwiches, or into 1- to 2-inch slices for easy nibbling. Garnish with fresh basil, if using, and serve.
