Ready Time

20 mins


5 servings


  • 1 12 oz can Tuna
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Celery
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • Pinch of Pepper
  • 10 slices Bread
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese


Start by draining the tuna and placing it in a bowl. Flake the tuna with a fork and set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, celery, onion, salt, and pepper.

Mix until well combined. Spread the mayonnaise mixture evenly over 5 slices of bread.

Top each slice with tuna, then add a generous layer of shredded cheddar cheese.

Place the remaining 5 slices of bread on top, and press down gently to seal. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.

Spread a thin layer of butter or oil in the skillet.

Place the tuna melts in the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.


  • To make a vegetarian version of this recipe, substitute mashed chickpeas for the tuna.
  • Add a few chopped olives or pickles to the mayonnaise mixture for extra flavor.
  • For a different twist, use a different type of bread, such as sourdough or rye.
  • Serve the tuna melts with a side of tomato soup or salad for a complete meal.
  • Leftover tuna melts can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
