Cheesy Tuna Melts
I have to admit something to you. Growing up, the thought of eating tuna literally made me gag. I can’t tell you how many times my parents made me sit at the table (for what seemed like hours), trying to get me to eat tuna sandwiches or tuna noodle casserole. I would always be threatened with “it would be my breakfast”, yikes! I’m not sure when or how, but I have since overcome my tuna aversion. Thankfully, I have no problem getting my family to eat these sandwiches! They’re nice to make when you need something quick and easy, and they’re easy on the budget!
