I love a simple, classic Tuna Melt Sandwich that has been broiled to melted cheese goodness, topped with fresh sliced tomatoes and a crunchy toasted slice of bread! This delightfully creamy, cheesy, crunchy sandwich is perfect as a quick lunch or dinner!
3tablespoonmayonnaise(more if you like the tuna creamier)
1pickle(sweet or dill, diced - or use relish)
each, salt & pepper(to taste)
Preheat your oven to broil, use the low setting if you have that option. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium size mixing bowl, combine the drained tuna, mayonnaise, diced pickle, lemon juice (optional), dill weed, salt, and pepper. Spread ½ of the tuna mixture onto the bottoms of your sandwich slices or rolls, add cheddar cheese slices, and top with 2-3 slices of tomato on each roll.
Set all pieces of the bread or rolls (tops and tuna topped bottoms) on the parchment paper lined baking sheet and broil for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from the oven, top each sandwich with any desired toppings and close with the plain slice of toasted bread. Transfer sandwiches to a plate, slice and serve immediately.
