Tuna Melts

Nobody likes tuna melts. I'm not really sure why, because they are fantastic.

Tuna Melts
1 can of tuna in water, drained
Juice of half of a lemon
3 tbsp of chopped red onion
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1 tsp of parsley
Salt and pepper
8 slices of white bread
4 pieces of American cheese
1/4 cup of shredded other cheese (I used Colby/Monterrey Jack)

Turn your broiler on. Line a baking sheet with tin foil.

Toast your bread in a toaster. I tried using the broiler, but things just get burnt that way. I'll say it again: use a toaster.

While your bread is toasting, in a bowl, mix together the tuna, lemon juice, red onion, parsley, mayonnaise, and salt and pepper to taste.

Arrange 4 slices of the toast on the baking sheet. Top each piece with a slice of American cheese and then a tablespoon or so of the tuna mixture. Top the tuna with the shredded cheese. Place the sandwiches in the broiler and broil until the cheese has melted and the tuna is warmed through. *Keep an eye on your tuna melts. 

When the cheese is melted, top each sandwich with its other toast half.


*See that burnt part? That's what happens when you turn your back on the broiler.
