How To Make A Tasty Tuna Melt

Fish doesn’t typically get smothered in cheese, but when it does, it certainly doesn’t disappoint. You can make a tuna melt sandwich from tuna salad or just lightly seasoned tuna. If you made too much tuna salad for lunch the day before, a tuna melt will give it new life so you don’t feel like you’re eating the same thing day after day. Layer tuna salad, cheddar cheese and sliced onions on sourdough bread – or whatever bread you have in the pantry. Once the sandwich is assembled, crisp the bread and melt the cheese in a well-buttered frying pan. If you’re looking for a health-conscious alternative, use whole wheat bread, swiss cheese and bake or broil the sandwich in the oven instead of frying it. In this video, Chef Fernando will show you how to make a tasty tuna melt in just a few steps. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
