    Tuna Melt

    This Tuna Melt Recipe is the best. When I saw the double layer of cheese I just had to give it a try. This is unique- The layer of cheese melted over the top engulfs the tuna salad and keeps it from sliding out. What a great dish to serve while watching a football game. You and your guests will love it. I doubled this recipe and substituted white bread. It produced a total of 8.

    1. 2 (6 ounce) cans solid white tuna in water, drained
    2. 1/4 cup mayonnaise
    3. 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
    4. 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
    5. 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
    6. 3/4 teaspoon red wine vinegar
    7. 1 pinch salt
    8. 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
    9. 4 slices seedless rye bread
    10. 8 slices ripe tomato
    11. 8 slices Swiss cheese

    1. Preheat the oven broiler.
    2. In a bowl, mix the tuna, mayonnaise, celery, onion, parsley, and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
    3. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet, and broil 1 minute in the preheated oven, until lightly toasted. 4. 4. Remove from heat, and spread with the tuna salad.
    5. Place 1 cheese slice over the tuna salad on each piece of bread, layer with a tomato slice, and top with remaining cheese slices.
    6. Return layered bread to the preheated oven, and broil 3 to 5 minutes, until cheese is melted.

        If you have 8 servings and 2 slices of cheese per serving, wouldn’t that call for 16 slices of cheese?

        You are right. If you double the recipe. You have to also double all the other Ingredients. 8 slices of bread and 16 cheese and so on.
