I recognize a twelve minute tuna melt recipe sounds a bit odd.
The truth is I’m being realistic and and ten minutes was just two minutes too little. And tuna melts, while tantalizing and tasty, don’t a complete recipe make.*

In any event, before I take another trip down the tongue twister highway, I’m popping in to share a quick non-recipe recipe. Whole, healthy foods prepared simply and easily, while maximizing flavor and texture. Also known as, I had a hankering and this tuna melt sandwich smashed it.
You start with the basics and the base, a good savory bread. Pumpernickel or rye are my favorites for this sandwich, but any decent, crusty loaf will work. You top it with your personalized tuna salad blend, a splash of hot sauce if you’re feeling sassy, and then you cover the entire sammie in rich, melted cheese. It’s pretty much perfection.
