English Muffin Tuna Melts

Do you ever have those days when you just don’t know what to make for lunch or dinner? Well this recipe is for you! I made delicious little open faced tuna melts, which were a great meal with some salad. These have very similar ingredients to the tuna melt panini that I made a little while ago (link here).

A can of tuna can go so far, this recipe uses one can and makes enough for 3 people. This is quite the budget-friendly meal. English muffins are quite inexpensive too, but you could really use any bread/bagel of choice. If you do use something other than english muffins, you will likely have to adjust the amount of spinach and tuna accordingly.

I know spinach is not typical on a classic tuna melt but it was my way of adding a little more nutrition to this meal. It also adds colour which makes them prettier too.

I hope you enjoy this easy recipe and I will try to share many more simple recipes with you all ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
