Tuna Melt {7 WW+ Lunch}

I'm always looking for a tasty meal for lunch. And not just a turkey wrap or a salad. Something that will taste as rich as the real thing. This tuna melt definitely does it for me. I eat it with a large salad and it fills me up until just before Joseph comes home. Cause I always snack right before dinner. Don't you?

Now you could go even further and reduce the points in this meal by using non-fat mayo and fat-free cheese but come on, what's the fun in that? I also have diced up some pickle and put that in as well but it's not necessary since you have the juice for flavor and the crunch of the celery. And that tiny bit of seasoning really goes a long way. Another great thing to use would be the Trader Joe's Parmesan Rosemary rolls. Now those things are tasty! Just split two in half and you and your lunch companion will be full in no time! Or you can just put 1/2 of the mix in the fridge for tomorrow's lunch...

Tuna Melt

  • 1 can tuna in water, drained
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayo
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash garlic & herb seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon pickle juice
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 slices of Trader Joe's whole grain bread
  • 1 ounce reduced fat cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven (or toaster oven) to 450 degrees. Mix the tuna, mayo, celery, spices & pickle juice together until combined. Spread onto a piece of bread and top with cheese. Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese starts to bubble and bread is slightly toasted.
