Tuna Melt

I had a hankering for tuna and cheesy tuna. This is so simple but so good.

Tuna Melt (from Good Food Magazine May 2002)
(Serves 2)

200g can tuna
2-3 spring onions, finely chopped
4 tbsp mayonnaise
2 English muffins
50g cheddar, coarsely grated
generous pinch of paprika
Preheat the grill.

Drain the tuna, flake it into a bowl and mix with the spring onions and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper.

Cut the muffin in half and toast until lightly browned, then spread the tuna mixture on top. Scatter over the cheese and put under the grill until the cheese is bubbling.
Sprinkle with paprika and serve.


  1. You can't beat a tasty Tuna Melt. My version is basically the same except I add some chopped green and black olives and chopped hot sweet pickled cherry peppers to the mix. Sooooooo scrummy!

    1. That sounds amazing, I'm going to try adding olives and peppers next time! Sometimes I just have a hankering for melty tuna and cheese!
