Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Tuna Melts are not suitable for freezing. I'd doubt if there's anything left to freeze though!
  • Makes a great accompaniment for soup or is a terrific dinner on its own!
  • Other variations of Tuna Melts include adding corn kernels, slices of tomato, raw onion, capsicum, or lettuce. You could also add arugula and yellow peppers to spice things up a bit.
