Fantastic Tuna Melt

Submitted by: GLITCHYPIXELS

Introduction

After frequenting a local restaurant I found their tuna melt had an amazing mixture of veggies, and a fantastic flavour. This is my attempt at recreating the sandwich. It's rather high in calorie, as most sandwiches are. After frequenting a local restaurant I found their tuna melt had an amazing mixture of veggies, and a fantastic flavour.
