OPEN-FACED TUNA MELT SANDWICHES

I remember long ago having an open-faced tuna melt sandwich at Woodward & Lothrop Tea Room. This is one of my husband's favorite sandwiches.


1 (5-oz) can solid white Albacore tuna in water
2 T minced red onion
1 celery stalk, minced
½ cup mayonnaise
1 T lemon juice
½ t seasoned salt
½ t lemon pepper
¼ t celery seeds
2 slices sourdough or whole grain bread, toasted
Butter, to spread on toast
4 slices Swiss cheese
2 large tomato slices

Drain water from can of tuna and spoon tuna into a medium size bowl.
Break up the tuna with a fork and add the red onion, celery, mayonnaise, lemon juice, seasoned salt, lemon pepper, and celery seeds.
Mix until well combined.

Spread a little butter on each slice of bread.
Spoon on some tuna, top with a slice of cheese.
Add a slice of tomato and another slice of cheese.

Place under the broiler for about 3 minutes, or until cheese is nicely melted.

Cut each in half and serve with some potato chips and a pickle slice.
