How Do I Make A Tomato Tuna Melt?
Making tuna melts are super simple, but adding a nice, thick tomato slice is just taking the flavors to the next level.
You simply slice a tomato into thick slices, place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Next, mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl and scoop it evenly on each tomato slice!
There’s something so good about warming up tuna mixture on top of a tomato…the taste is something you’ll have to experience for yourself.
What Ingredients Do I Need For Tuna Melts?
You probably have all of these ingredients in your house right now.
- canned tuna
- onion powder
- salt & pepper
- smoked cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese)
Are Tomatoes Low Carb?

What Kind Of Tuna Should I Use?
I personally like to use solid white Albacore tuna in water.
It is more chunky and not super juicy like some cheaper brands.
Any sort of canned tuna in water will work, just be sure to drain as much liquid as you can.
