Cheesy Tuna Melts with Artichokes


Ok, the picture might not do these tuna melts justice, but believe me... these are fantastic! A slightly different twist on a regular tuna melt, these melts, brightened with the flavor of lemon and artichokes, are good for any time of the day!


- 1, 12 oz. can light water-packed tuna, drained
- 2/3 cup coarsely chopped water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or Mexican blend), divided
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
- Juice from 1/2 of a fresh lemon
- Sourdough bread, English muffins, or bread of choice

Toast bread or English muffins. While bread is toasting, combine tuna, artichokes, mayo, 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese, pepper, oregano, and lemon juice. Spread on toast and sprinkle with more shredded cheese. Put under a broiler until cheese is melted. Or if you have a toaster oven, place back in toaster until cheese is completed melted. Enjoy!
