Tuna Melt

We don't eat much seafood in our home. My husband typically doesn't like it, and I usually don't feel strongly enough about it to care.  So when I do get that urge to make some seafood, and it doesn't come that often, I usually go with that feeling.  And that's how I recently ended up making tuna melts for dinner.  It's not glamorous or even that good-looking, but it was incredibly satisfying.

And yes, I feel a little lame referring to canned tuna as "seafood."

Makes 2

1 (5 ounce) can chunk tuna, drained
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
dash garlic powder
dash of hot sauce
salt and pepper to taste
2 slices wheat bread
1 tomato, thickly sliced
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1) Combine tuna, onion, mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, garlic powder, hot sauce, and salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
2) Spread 1/4 cup of the tuna mixture on each slice of bread; top with tomato slices and cheese. Place sandwiches on a baking sheet and broil until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes.  Enjoy!
