Emeril's Kicked-Up Tuna Melt

15 mins (prep 12, cooking 3)
13 ingredients
4 servings
Looking for an interesting tuna melt, I wandered into the Food Network where I found this little gem of Emeril’s which I slightly adapted to suit my ‘buds. Even my tuna-averse husband loved them! I omit the tomatoes for personal preference, but have left them in the recipe. Please note that while I’m leaving the recipe yield and ingredient quantities the same as the original, I actually got twice as many open-faced sandwiches!
