Today's Special: Mediterranean Tuna Melt

Today's Special: Mediterranean Tuna Melt

Tuna melts are one of my all time favorite comfort foods. It's like a grilled cheese, there is something about melted cheese and warmed bread that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Tuna melts are a great go to meal when you have no time and no fresh food in the fridge. I always have canned tuna, bread, and cheese in my kitchen. Tonight's recipe is a jazzed up version with a Mediterranean twist: garbanzos, capers, and green olives. I've made this open faced sandwich many times and it's absolutely delicious. To make it for dinner,
