Emeril's Kicked-Up Tuna Melts

Submitted by: LTHORNTON79

Introduction

"Any mild melting cheese, like cheddar or monterey jack will work here. The recipe can easily be doubled for a crowd." -Emeril

I cut the tuna in half for this recipe because the original 20 ounces was just too much for me. Other than that the recipe is the same as the one created by Emeril. I like dark German bread with this.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 cans (5 ounces each) solid white tuna packed in water, drained
    1/3 cup mayonnaise, plus more for spreading
    1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
    4 teaspoons capers, rinsed and drained
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    1 teaspoon ground pepper
    1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled between your fingers
    4 slices crusty bread
    8 thin slices tomato
    4 slices provolone

Directions

Heat broiler, with rack in highest position. In a medium bowl, combine tuna, mayonnaise, onion, capers, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and oregano and stir until thoroughly combined.

Arrange bread on a baking sheet and spread a little mayonnaise on each slice. Divide tuna salad evenly among slices, then top each with 2 slices tomato and 1 slice cheese. Broil until cheese is golden brown and bubbling, 3 to 4 minutes.
