tuna-meltsHere is another meatless dish, which is quick, easy, and nutritious.  Perfect for a busy mom who strives to serve her family a healthy meal.  These are perfect alone, or accompanied by a nice serving of garden salad, or a bowl of soup.  This recipe serves 2-4.


  • 2 English Muffins, sliced in half (horizontally)
  • 6 oz can of your favorite tuna (I use Bumble Bee)
  • 1 Tbs. Hellmann’s Light Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbs. chopped celery
  • 1 Tbs. chopped onion
  • 4 tomato slices
  • 4 cheese slices
  • 4 onion slices (optional)
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 Claussen Pickles, quartered


  1. In a medium bowl, mix tuna, mayonnaise, celery, onions, and pepper.
  2. Toast the English Muffins.
  3. Divide the tuna salad into four equal portions (about 2 Tbs. each).
  4. Spread each muffin half with one portion of the tuna salad.
  5. Cover with sliced onion, sliced tomato, and top it off with a slice of American cheese.
  6. Place the tuna melts in a microwave and melt the cheese, or place it in an oven proof dish and melt them in the oven.

Serve with a slice of pickle, salad, or soup.  You can also prepare the tuna salad your favorite way, and build your own tuna melts.

    These look delicious and super easy for a weeknight meal. Especially on a Friday during Lent after a long hard week at work!

    Thank you busymom!!! I’m sure your family will welcome the “good old” tuna salad, served as a warm open face sandwich.

    I’ve always been a big fan of great tuna recipes. Not just becuase of the great taste tuna has, but it’s still a Very cost effective meat source. As a tuna recipe collector, I just wanted to thank you for contributing to my personal cook book with this recipe variation. :)
