Open Faced Tuna Melts

Tuna Melts are one of my favorite meals from my childhood. My father makes the best tuna fish! I know that's a strange thing to say, but it's true. He puts so much effort into it. He drains it, dries it out as much as possible (we like it that way). Then thinly chops up celery & onions into tiny tiny pieces. It's just perfect. I tried to recreate the concoction the best I could, but I just went ahead and did it my own way. With a little inspiration from Good Ol' Gina. I used pre-chopped celery, onions, & carrots (from Darrenkamps of course). I also added some garlic salt, a little light mayo, and some vinegar.

My daddy makes the best tuna fish & my husband makes the perfect grilled cheese. So I entrusted him to cook the sandwiches in the pan. We used fat free oil spray instead of butter. We cooked them on the stove for a little while. But then we wound up putting them in the oven under the broil setting which made them even better.

I didn't have any sliced cheese so I used Mexican shredded cheese. Each individual sandwich was 2.5 points.

These tuna melts look good. A thing of the past I forgot about, I think I'll try them again:)
