Tuna Melts

After Stud's big race, he needed some protein and some carbs, but our fridge and pantry were looking pretty bare.  But we did have bread.  And canned tuna!  So while he was resting with his feet up, I made us some tuna melts.  We didn't have any chips, so it's all we had, but they were gooooood.

Tuna Melt
1 can tuna
1 T. sweet pickle relish
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1 t. grated red onion
Bread (should make two large or three small sandwiches)
Swiss cheese

Easy.  Dump everything in a bowl (please drain the tuna) and combine well.  Butter one side of the bread and add cheese and tuna, and cook in a skillet over low heat.  It's hard to be patient, but that way the cheese will melt and the tuna will be hot.  If you have a cover for you skillet, that is great!  Cover those suckers and soon you will have a delicious lunch.

So good.  The perfect post-mini-marathon lunch.  And I still hate the smell of canned tuna.
