From Candi’s Kitchen
If you’re searching for an easy Tuna Melt recipe, I’ve got you covered. Why? Well…I don’t make anything that’s too complicated. If I see a recipe with a long list of ingredients my eyes glaze over. So I keep it simple. That’s how I roll. This recipe has 6 ingredients. Perfect!
My husband and I would enjoy Tuna Melts for a simple dinner at least once a week. Now, I enjoy them myself at about the same pace, always remembering him with love. That’s the cool thing about food, or songs, or places. They can conjure up wonderful memories of loved ones.
Anyhoo, back to the easy Tuna Melt recipe. This one is ridiculously simple, but that’s what you want, so that’s what you’re going to get.
The ingredients are relatively clean, too.
Here are some of my favorite ingredients, and then we’ll move on to the recipe.
First, I always use a sprouted bread, whether it’s Ezekiel or another brand. I’ve grown so accustomed to the taste and texture it is my go-to choice for bread. My sprouted bread typically has grains and seeds in it too. I like the added texture and crunch.
The canned tuna that I’m currently in love with is from Wild Planet. It’s the Skip Jack tuna and although it costs more than many other brands, it is well worth it. The taste and texture are wonderful, and never a fishy smell or taste.
TIP: If you use this tuna, DON’T DRAIN IT! The liquid in the can is meant to be mixed in with the tuna.
When it comes to the butter, I only use real, salted butter. Unsalted is fine, if that is what you prefer. But please, no substitutes unless you are required to for medical reasons. Real butter is the only way to go.
