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.


  • 2 cans of tuna
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. onion
  • 2 Tbsp. relish
  • splash of Tabasco sauce
  • splash of Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 slices of bread
  • Cheddar or Mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Put tuna, mayonnaise, onion, relish, Tabasco and Worcestershire in a bowl and mix well using a fork. Lay your bread out on a baking sheet, spread mixture evenly on each slice. Generously grate cheese over each. Bake for 10 minutes.

Servings: 2 to 4
Prep Time: 5 Minutes

To make a healthy tuna salad sandwich add 1 can of tuna, salt, pepper, and 1 Tbsp of light cream cheese instead of mayo. Then put it on your favorite low fat or wheat bread.

Takes a bit more work than your usual Tuna Fish Sandwich but it sure is worth it.



Heat oil in a medium-size frying pan. Add onion. Sprinkle with sugar, salt and pepper.


Stir often over medium heat until onion turns golden, 5 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar and tarragon. Stir constantly until liquid has evaporated, 1 minute. Taste, then add more vinegar, if needed. Remove from heat. In a large bowl, stir mayonnaise with olives and tomatoes. Stir in onion mixture. Crumble in tuna. Stir in spinach.

If making ahead, cover and refrigerate tuna mixture up to 2 days otherwise spoon over base of each bun. Top with bun lids. Serve or wrap and refrigerate. Sandwiches keep well, wrapped and refrigerated, up to one day.

Make tuna salad sandwich as normal. Cut sandwich into ghost shapes and ice the top with cream cheese. Cut small eyes out of the black olives and place them on the sandwich.
