You have to try this fabulous avocado tuna melt, featuring avocado, tomato, tuna salad, and muenster cheese on crunchy toasted whole grain bread. So easy (ready in 15 minutes!), really delicious, and a perfect change from the usual ho-hum tuna sandwich!
The tuna melt is a classic lunch choice. I hadn’t had a tuna melt in a loooong time, and for some reason I just developed a hankering for one. But of course, I could not just make a plain ol’ tuna melt. I decided to make a fancy schmancy, upscale tuna melt. I was just in one of those moods.
So I started with whole grain bread, because every one knows that whole grains rock. Am I right? 🙂
I decided to forego celery in my tuna salad, because I am just not a huge fan of celery. But I did add some garlic powder, onion flakes, paprika, and a smidge of dried dill weed for a little pizzazz!
I chose to use avocado on the melt also, because, well, what doesn’t taste better with some avocado on it?? Well, maybe a few things don’t taste better with avocado, but I was pretty sure it would rock on a tuna melt (and it did!).
Tomato and meunster cheese rounded out my ingredient selections. Why muenster cheese? Because I like meunster cheese, that’s why!
I admit, this recipe was all about ME and the things that I like. As a busy mom constantly working to meet the needs of the family, I think I deserve to make my ideal tuna melt every once in a while!
But, I am happy to say that DH also loved this. Thing 1 and Thing 2 pulled out the tomato, and Thing 2 removed the avocado as well.
I am not sure how any child of mine could dislike avocado, but there you have it. Oh well, that leaves more avocado for me!
