Easy Tuna Melts (3-19-13)

Mom's Tips

March 19th, 2013 by Jim Field

  • 1 – 10.2 ounce package refrigerated large flaky biscuits (5)
  • 1 pint deli tuna salad (2 cups)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar and/or Swiss cheese (4 ounces)

Bake biscuits according to package directions; cool.  Use a fork to split each biscuit in half.  Spread the tuna salad evenly on biscuit halves.  Sprinkle with the cheese.  Arrange biscuits on a baking sheet.  Preheat broiler.  Broil sandwiches 4 to 5 inches from heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese melts and browns slightly.  Makes 10 tuna melts.  Tip:  For a more adult sandwich, stir a little Cajun seasoning and a few chopped pimiento-stuffed olives into the tuna salad before spreading on biscuits.
