Delicious and easy, this tuna melt makes a yummy lunch or dinner. Each sandwich bakes in it's own foil package, so there's an added bonus of easy cleanup.

Ingredients

  • 1 can tuna (6 ounce)
  • 2 celery (medium stalks, chopped)
  • 1/2 cup processed American cheese (low sodium, diced)
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon instant minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 whole wheat bread (slices)

Directions

1. Wash hands and cooking area.

2. Preheat oven to 350°F.

3. Drain tuna and break the meat apart with a fork.

4. Wash and chop the celery and dice the cheese.

5. Mix tuna, celery, cheese, light mayonnaise, dried onion, salt, and pepper into a medium mixing bowl with a wooden spoon.

6. Spread tuna mixture on six of the pieces of whole wheat bread and place a single slice of bread on top of each (you will make a total of 6 sandwiches).

7. Put each sandwich on a square of aluminum foil, then wrap the foil around sandwiches, folding edges securely

8. Bake about 20 minutes or until hot in the middle. Cool slightly before serving.
