Tuna Melts

Tuna Melts Recipe
My kids detested tuna sandwiches growing up until I came up with tuna melts. I felt like they needed the omega 3's which tuna provides. It's basically an open face grilled cheese sandwich with tuna.  My kids don't like the extra slice of bread on sandwiches.  We've mixed up the meats to include ham or bologna when they were young, but their favorite was always a tuna melt.  It made a great after school snack.  Even now that they are grown, most of them still eat tuna melts.  Even my husband will ask for them once in a while.
1 can tuna
1/3 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. dried parsley flakes
Any other seasonings you desire
Pepper Jack Cheese (or your favorite)
Mix up the tuna, mayonnaise and seasonings. Spoon on top of bread. Top with cheese. Broil on High until cheese has melted. A great accompaniment to your favorite bowl of soup.
