Tuna Melt

My girl is fixated on fish. I will purchase 10-20 jars when it goes at a bargain, put some at the excellent of the wash room, and by one way or another they generally vanish by time I go to make this delightful Tuna Melt sandwich.

THIS TIME, I shrouded some in an undisclosed area (a bolted safe. HA!) and had the option to make this ideal Tuna Melt.

It’s ooey-gooey and pressed brimming with scrumptious flavor, and ideal for the evenings when you simply need to put something on the table overly brisk or for that get-together with your companions.
