Description

Unexpected company for lunch? Make up this quick open-faced tuna melt Suitable for Atkins, keto, lchf, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, dairy free (omit cheese).

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces, weight Solid White Albacore Packed In Water, Drained Well
  • 2 Tablespoons Red Onion, Diced
  • 2 Tablespoons Best Foods/Hellman's Real Mayonnaise (Not "Light")
  • 3 whole Nature Sweet Cherub Tomatoes, Sliced Thin
  • 2 Tablespoons Sharp Cheddar, Shredded

Preparation

Cover a small baking sheet with foil, set aside.

Toast the bread you are using for the base, and place on the baking sheet. (Bread not included in nutritional information, since it will vary.)

Drain tuna well and put into small mixing bowl. Add onion and mayonnaise, mix well. The mixture might seem a little dry, but it needs to be. The mayonnaise will warm and thin out a lot when broiled.

Divide tuna mixture on toast pieces. Top with tomato slices and cheese.

Broil just until cheese is melted. Transfer to serving plates. Serve with condiments or sides of choice.

Note: For the photo, I served these on a split Aunt Rocky’s Onion Roll that was toasted under the broiler. Another bread that works well is Aunt Rocky’s Microwave Flax Bread. See my recipe box on Tasty Kitchen for these recipes.
