All I can say is, "Delish!"

Ingredients:

Directions:

Preheat broiler.

Lightly toast the muffins on both sides.

Combine the first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl. Top the muffin halves equally with the tuna mixture and sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon Swiss cheese. Top each with a tomato slice, then sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese. Broil until cheese is melted, about 3 to 4 minutes.

This is one of my favourite versions of a tuna melt because it has added veggies and Greek yogurt. Choose any type of cheese you like, I went with a slice of Muenster!

In tough economic times like these, I always keep cans of tuna in my pantry. Rather than just making the regular boring tuna sandwich, tuna melts are still cheap and tasty.
