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

  2. Ooh, I love a good tuna melt! This looks amazing.

  3. 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.
