Lisa’s Tuna Melts

These are sooo easy to make and very yummy. Now keep in mind I am feeding 4 men so you can scale this down to size LOL. This is how I make them.

Lisa’s Tuna Melts

What you need
6 Ciabatta buns cut in half
4 cans of flaked white tuna drained
1 package of cream cheese
1/2 cup mayo
1 tablespoon lemon
1 tsp granulated garlic
salt and pepper to taste
2 tomatoes sliced
green onions chopped
cheese to top

I used my kitchen aid mixer and mixed together the tuna, cream cheese, and mayo, mixed it well, then added the lemon, garlic and salt and pepper, give it a taste and if needed add more lemon and salt and pepper 

Line a cookie sheet with tin foil, place your buns on it, and evenly spoon the mixture between the buns. top with chopped onions, tomatoes and then cheese, as much or as little as you like.

I bake mine in the oven at 375 for about 10 to 15 minutes or so. I like it all heated through evenly 
Enjoy
