Tuna Melts

Serves 4 Prep Time 30 minutes   Cook Time 2 minutes   Rated:

I love a quick and tasty lunch on the weekend; back in the day when I had kids aplenty who were hungry 24/7, this was a go-to. It keeps the hollow legs full for a couple of hours at least. You can increase or decrease the quantities as you need. There were occasions when we went through over a dozen eggs and more than one loaf of bread when making these, but we did feed the neighborhood hungry hoardes at the same time. No complaints. Ever.
