Cheap and Versatile Tuna Melts



I didn't eat a lot of tuna growing up. I was pretty picky, and any and all fish were off the table. It didn't help that my mom's idea of "tuna salad" was 1 part tuna to 4 parts mayonnaise. It wasn't until recently that I began to embrace tuna, thanks in part to my friend, Jessica, telling me about her awesome tuna melts.

These melts are versatile. You can use any cheese, bread, or green you have, and they'll still be delicious.

Tuna Melts - makes four melts at 0.80€ a piece. As always, pices are based on those found at K-Supermarket City on Satakunnankatu. 

1 can tuna - 1.59€
1 onion - 0.10€
1/4 pack spinach - 2€/pack, 0.50€
A few squeezes of mayonnaise(my tube was under 2€, and I didn't measure, but you just want the tuna and onion mixture to be moist, but not drenched.)
4 slices of bread - 1.59/loaf of 17 slices, 0.36€
8 slices cheese - There was a sale on Valio sliced cheese last week, 500g for 2.49€. 
Salt
Pepper



Drain the tuna and add it to a bowl with the chopped onion. Stir in mayonnaise, salt, and pepper. Place 4 slices of bread on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Add spinach leaves, followed by tuna mixture, and top with two cheese slices. Bake on the top level of your oven until cheese is melted and bread is toasty.

What do you like to put on your tuna melts?
