Open Face Tuna Melts are a simple meatless sandwich that is great for lunch or dinner.
This is a "Daddy is working tonight" special dinner that my son and I enjoy quite often when his tuna hating father has a night class. He used to call them "tuna AND melts" when he was little, and the name has stuck in our house.
I make them just like my mom used to make, open faced with mayo and curry powder. And while I will put the mixture on any bread we have in the house, I always remember her making them on English muffins.
This is a fabulous I don't wanna cook meal. Just mix up the tuna with mayo, curry and cheese; spread it on the bread, add a little more cheese and throw them under the broiler.

Open Faced Tuna Melts
- 3-4 English muffins (cut in half)
- 2 cans tuna
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- ½ teaspoon curry powder (more or less to taste)
- ¾ cup cheddar cheese (grated)
- Place English muffin halves on a broiler pan. If you like a crispy crust, place under the broiler to toast for a few minutes while you mix the tuna.
- In a medium bowl combine tuna, mayonnaise and curry powder. Add ½ cup of grated cheese. Spread mixture on the English muffin halves.
- Sprinkle the sandwiches with the remaining cheese and place under the broiler until the cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes. Remove and serve.
My husband always has his tuna melts on an English muffin but I make mine on bread. I really should go with the muffin because I love them. Yum!

I adore tuna melts! And if I go full keto again, they might even be enough to make the low carb bread I don't love taste good!
