No-Meat Fridays, Week 6: Melt with You

Another Lenten Friday, another meat-free dish – open face tuna melts with a side of waffle fries.


I’ll start with the fries. I bought them. They were leftover from a party when we made some delicious Irish nachos. Yum.

As for the tuna salad, you’ll need:

1 can tuna (in water, not oil)
1 stalk of celery, chopped
1 green onion, chopped
1/4 cup mayo (or Miracle Whip), or mayo to taste
1 tablespoon honey
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 pieces of whole wheat bread, toasted

Mix all the ingredients (except the cheese and bread) together in a bowl. Add the mayo last and slowly. Dan likes way less mayo in his than I do, so I take some tuna out and then proceed to add more mayo to my taste.

Spoon the tuna salad onto the bread. Add the cheese to the top.

If you’re going for a super fast meal, broil the bread, so the cheese gets bubbly.

If you want to take the time for the tuna itself to get warm (my preferred method), heat the over to about 350 and let the bread bake for about 5-7 minutes, checking on it to make sure the cheese doesn’t burn.


Stay tuned for the last post in the No-Meat Friday series next week!
