Open Face Tuna Melt

Recipe from: Chrissy T.
Servings: 8

These have become a quick dinner staple. They are sooo good, and comes together in minutes. You can change the type of cheese, but I've found that something with a stronger flavor that melts well, is best. The type of bread I use is called Saloio and is similar to Ciabbata (Saloio is a portuguese bread readily available at our supermarket bakery).

8 slices saloio bread, cut about ¾ inch thick and toasted lightly
3 6 ounce cans tuna in water, drained well
½ cup mayonnaise, can use light, adjust amount as needed
¼ cup finely chopped onions
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
salt and pepper
2 tomatoes, sliced
8 slices piquante provolone cheese, or swiss cheese

Mix the tuna, mayo, onion, lemon juice, old bay seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix well. Place enough tuna on a toasted slice of bread and spread to cover slice. Top with slice of tomato (or 2 if the tomato slice is small) and then top with a slice of cheese. Place sandwich slices on a cookie sheet. Placing rack not too close to the broiler (about the second one down), broil sandwiches until the cheese is golden brown.
