I thought that since I was making patty melts for the boys that I would go ahead and make myself a tuna melt. I LOVE tuna and when you add melty cheese to it, it’s even better.
(Sorry about the blurry picture. Guess I was so excited to eat it I was careless taking the photo!)
Here are my ingredients.
I began by mixing together the drained tuna, diced celery, chopped green onion, garlic powder, parsley and mayonnaise in a medium bowl until well combined.
I put one slice of marble rye bread, buttered side down, in the fry pan and added the first layer of cheese.
I used half of the tuna mixture for each melt.
I added the second layer of cheese and then the second pieces of marble rye bread, buttered on top.
I fried it, like making grilled cheese, at the same time I was cooking the Patty Melts, until both sides were browned and the cheese was melted.
Then removed it to the plate, cut it in half and served it. The picture didn’t turn out so well….sorry.
