Tuna Melt with Egg
"I got this recipe when I was working at a restaurant, when I was a teenager, that is no longer in business. I like the tuna salad in it because it is a little different then most. And this sandwich is just a little different then most. I serve this with small relish tray of olives, pickles or cucumbers, green onions, pickled beets, pickled okra, and sliced tomatoes. Plus a salad of some sort, like a corn salad or pasta salad."

Original recipe yields 6 servings (6 tuna melts)
- Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine tuna, mayonnaise, celery, green onions, carrots, hard-boiled eggs, olives, and mustard in a bowl; mix until well combined.
- Brush melted butter on one side of each bread slice. Top an unbuttered side with a slice of cheese, some tuna salad, another slice of cheese, and another slice of bread, buttered side facing up. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Transfer sandwiches to the prepared baking sheet.
- Broil in the preheated oven until bread is toasted and cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes.
