Tuna Melt

1 Can Tuna (drained)
2 Slices Bread
Grated Cheese

Open one can of tuna and drain. Lighly toast both sides of the bread under a grill at high heat. Remove bread from grill and flake tuna evenly on bread. Grate cheese and cheese to cover the tuna and place under the grill at a medium heat. Grill untill cheese is bubbling. Serve.

Very tasty, if two aint enough you can just double the quantities. Not sure of the nutritional info on this but if the cheese raises the fat too much then you can use a low fat cheese.

You could also use seasoned buffalo mozzerella if you like something a little different.

Any modifications to this recipie are welcome.

    How about a good dash of worcester sauce when the cheese is melting to take away a bit of the tuna taste?

    regards

    I just did a similar thing...

    Grabbed a mircowave tub, put in a single serving of baked beans, and single serving of drained tuna, microwaved for about 2mins, then added a bit of cheese - meanwhile i toasted some bread - chucked the sloppy contents ontop - and wazaam !
    tasted pritty good.

    Arnie lover and anyone else who suffers from Tuna Syndrome try this one out...Hen you can leave it as you are unique mate...i wish i had your taste buds m8.

    Ok you asked about variating tuna with cottage cheese instead of cheddar. Mate it is delicious if done right.

    The trick is you dont have to make your tuna dry when draining, but dont leave it soaking either. If brine was no good they wouldn`t put the tuna in it.

    So its moist tuna 80g
    cottage cheese 30g
    spring onion for taste mix these all up .

    The cottage cheese will be still lumpy , but put in the microwave for 40 secs, in a 800w microwave. The cheese will melt after this time but believe me you cant taste the tuna. Sometimes i mix a little bit of italian seasoning in it or thyme or dress with cress. Spread over french stick crusty back and enjoy.

    Also you dont need butter or mayo as the cheese is good enough to spread. But the choice is yours
    ...happy eating lads ......bodferret

    6 cans a day?? way to much mercuy in that for my likeing. A diet is supposed to be varied isn't it?
    2 cans every other day is supposed to be enough mercury wise

    would it be a good idea to wash the tuna first to take away the most of the fishy taste.
