This Open Faced Tuna Melt sandwich will transport you to your favorite deli with delicious homemade tuna salad, fresh sliced tomato, and ooey-gooey mozzarella cheese, all on top of freshly toasted french bread! This would also taste amazing on my homemade Amish White Bread!


This sandwich tastes amazing with a big part (or two) of unprocessed herb snowy in cheese. In the summer we change a relatively prodigious garden with Oodles of tomato plants, from Red to Heirloom. When we can, we use those, but either way, you present not impoverishment to overleap that real important fixings. The herb compliments the tuna immix so cured!
