Kicked-up Tuna Melts

This isn't your average tuna melt. Serve these hot for best results.

  • Yield: 4 open-faced sandwiches; serves 2 to 4


  • Four 5-ounce cans solid white tuna packed in water, drained
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, plus more for spreading
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  • 4 slices rustic white bread or other dense white bread
  • 8 thin slices tomato
  • 4 ounces sliced provolone cheese


  • Position a rack about 6 inches from broiler element and preheat broiler.

  • Combine tuna, mayonnaise, red onion, lemon juice, pepper, salt, and oregano in a medium bowl and stir until thoroughly combined.

  • Arrange bread slices on a baking sheet and spread additional mayonnaise over each slice, if desired. Divide tuna salad evenly among bread slices, then top with tomato.
