Favorite Fall Flavor Friday ~ Tuna Melt

Have you ever look at your watch and think "oh my where did the time go, it's dinner time already" You might have had a really busy day, or are just plumb tired and want somethings fast and easy.

Drive true are fast and easy, but don't come that cheap. If you do a bit of planning on your day to day meal preparation, this could be a very good alternative.

What you will need:

  • A can of tuna (if you are not a tuna fan, chicken, turkey or ham would be good substitute)
  • Mayo
  • Grated cheese
  • Your favorite BBQ sauce (completely optional) ~ for this recipe I use my homemade Curried BBQ sauce.
  • Bread (sliced)
Since I don't really measure can't really tell you quantities but it's pretty easy mix the tuna, mayo and BBQ sauce in a bowl, spread the mixture on slices on bread and topped with grated cheese. Put in the oven at 350 degrees until cheese is melted (you can turn the oven on broiled for a minute or two after the cheese is melted but totally optional) 

Now you are wondering what sides can we served with these. Salads, fries, *rice and vegetable are all very delicious with those. 

Do you have a go to meal when you are in a rush and don't know what to prepare for dinner?

*If you are the type of person that hate waiting for the rice to cook, you can make large pot rice (rice cooker or stove top) in advance and freeze in portion that you would normally serve. Can be heated up in microwave in minutes.
