Tuna melt baked

The main ingredient is canned tuna, which is very easy to find and store in the pantry. Tuna is a healthy fish that is packed with omega-3 fatty acids. We combine a can of tuna with spicy mayonnaise for taste. Check out the recipe below for more details. A 5-ounce can of tuna goes with 4 pieces of toast.

In addition to that, we have included some celery and corn in the recipe so that it has a crunchiness, which really adds delicious flavor to the sandwich.

You can choose any kind of cheese you want. Here, we used two kinds. First, the Emmental cheese, which is one of the best cheeses for melting and is often used in cheese fondue. We also sprinkle some parmesan cheese to give it a nutty and umami taste.
