Tuna Melts in the Oven

Tuna Melt Burger

This recipe comes to us from The Texas A&M University System’s Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drain tuna and break the meat apart with a fork.
Wash and chop the celery and dice the cheese.
Mix tuna, celery, cheese, light mayonnaise, dried onion, salt and pepper into a medium mixing bowl with a wooden spoon.
Spread tuna mixture on 6 of the pieces of whole wheat bread and place a single slice of bread on top of each (making a total of 6 sandwiches).
Put each sandwich on a square of aluminum foil, then wrap the foil around sandwiches, folding edges securely.
Bake about 20 minutes or until hot in the middle. Cool slightly before serving.
