  • 12 ounces solid white albacore tuna packed in water and drained
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise may wish to use more or less
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 4 slices sourdough bread

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine tuna, mayonnaise, onion, celery, banana peppers and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Lay bread on baking sheet. Spoon and divide tuna mixture on the bread slices. Top each tuna melt with two slices of tomatoes and then 2 slices of provolone cheese.
  4. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is hot, bubbly, and starting to brown. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

--You may wish to use more, or less, mayonnaise. I have actually found 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons to be the amount our family likes best.
