Pita Tuna Melt

Submitted by: DARTHLAURIE

Introduction

I really wanted a tuna melt, but all I had was a pita. So...tuna melt in a pita was born! It's almost a cross between a panini and a quesadilla and a tuna sandwich.

Ingredients

    1 6oz can tuna in water, drained
    1 T light mayonnaise
    1 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
    1 whole wheat pita pocket

Directions

Combine the tuna, mayo, and cheese. Mix until well combined.
Open the pita so you have a pocket.
Fill pita with tuna salad. Don't overfill.
Use an old waffle iron with a flat side griddle or a panini maker is the fastest method. Of course, you could use a regular pan over medium heat.
Spray both sides of the pita with cooking spray or alternatively, spread a thin layer of mayo or margarine on the pita.
Put in pan or waffle iron. If you're using the waffle iron method, feel free to smash a bit when you put the lid down. If you're using a pan, flip the pita over when it's golden brown on one side. Cook until golden brown on each side. Enjoy!
