The Perfect Tuna Melt

YUM! But seriously, 3-4 tablespoons cup of mayo? I used 2 tablespoons. because if I would have used 3-4 tablespoons of mayo, I'm positive this would have been inedible. I omitted the onions, added a shake of garlic salt, and a little dill relish. I've never tried mozzarella on a tuna melt before, but it was awesome.


    Tuna, 2 cans, drained
    Onion, medium size, chopped
    Celery, 1/2 a stalk, chopped
    Garlic (1 clove), minced
    Parsley, 1 tablespoon, chopped
    Mayonnaise, 3-4 tablespoons
    Olive Oil, 3 tablespoons, divided
    Mozzarella, 1/3 cup, shredded
    Bread, sliced
    Butter, softened
    Salt and Pepper to taste


Step 1: Drain water from tuna and put the tuna into a medium bowl.

Step 2: Chop onion, celery, and parsley.  Mince garlic and add ingredients to tuna.

Step 3: Add mayonnaise, olive oil, and mozzarella cheese. Combine all ingredients until well incorporated. Salt and pepper to taste.

Step 4: Place a non-stick skillet on the stove and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When the skillet is hot, take a slice of bread and generously spread butter on one side.

Step 5: Place the bread (buttered side down) in the hot skillet. Be sure to keep the temp at a consistent heat
