🍅Tuna melts in a tomato have to be one of the cutest little lunch ideas ever. I love making these in the summer time. That’s when Jersey tomatoes are ripe & abundant. Don’t worry, you don’t have to wait until the summer comes around. They are just as delicious in every season, promise 😊.
Making these is easy. Here’s how to do it:
💥Scoop out all the seeds & inside of the tomato💥 Fill it with a few spoonfuls of your favorite Tuna 💥Top with cheese (I used cheddar) 💥Bake at 425° until the cheese is melted & serve 🙌🏼.
⚡️These are great for a crowd if you’re hosting a lunch or brunch. You can assemble everything then just bake them when you’re ready
⚡️This works great with chicken salad, too.
⚡️Sometimes I season the inside of the tomato with a little salt & pepper but that’s up to you.
I hope you like this easy lunch idea & give it a try.
