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.
