Tuna Melt

I made these tuna melts last night and they were really great! My husband said it was the best tuna melt he's ever had.
Tuna Melt
Adapted from
3 (5 oz) cans solid white tuna, well drained (you can also use chunk light)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 TBSP fresh parsley, finely chopped
Seasoning salt (to taste)
Black pepper (to taste)
8 slices French bread (Italian or Sour Dough will also work)
Tomato slices
4 slices Swiss cheese, or shredded Swiss (I used provolone)
Butter or margarine (for cooking)

1. In a bowl combine tuna fish, mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery rib, green onions, and parsley. Add seasoning salt and black pepper to taste, and mix well.
2. Compile the sandwich by layering a slice of bread, then the tuna mixture, some Swiss cheese, then tomato’s followed by more Swiss cheese. Butter a slice of bread and lay it on top of the sandwich (butter side up).
3. Heat your skillet or griddle on medium heat. Place the sandwiches butter side down into your skillet. Lightly butter the slice of bread that’s facing upwards. Cook for a few minutes until nicely browned. Flip sandwich over and cook on the other side until it’s browned. Remove from pan and serve immediately. Makes 4 sandwiches
