I adore curry and thought that this aromatic spice would be a natural with tuna. My family thinks that I was right and ask for these tuna-melts often. Easy and very tasty. To keep this recipe on the light side, use non-fat mayo and low-fat cheese.

This was one of those recipes I kept talking about the rest of the night. I used fat-free miricle whip instead of mayo. I didn't have English muffins so I used French rolls instead. I used mozzerella instead of cheddar but left everything else the same. These would make a great appetizer but my husband and I had ours as a snack. Will definitely make this again. Read More

This is a wonderful tasty recipe. I love having these for a snack and it's so quick and easy. I use swiss cheese instead of the cheddar just because I love swiss cheese. Very tasty! Read More

I am married to the most critical man in the world and he went crazy when I served him this for dinner one night. Begged me to tell him what all was in there because he wanted it every night! Read More

Very tasty and simple tuna melt. Since I'm off dairy I used soy cheese on top and still really enjoyed this. Next time I'll add toasted walnuts/almonds for some crunch. Thanks! Read More

Very good! The flavors compliment each other nicely and there is a great contrast of textures. Apart from adding a little more mayo I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks BajaTheCat! Read More

So easy and SO good. I am a big fan of tuna sandwiches and this is a great twist to spice them up. I really loved the notes of lemon in this. To me this really makes it and is great with the curry. I did add a little bit of zest in addition to what the recipe called for. I also used a little (but not much) more curry than what the recipe called for. Rather than sliced cheese I grated it into the tuna mixture but other than those minor changes did the exact recipe. I loved it!! I made it for a party but it is so easy it's perfect for a casual lunch for one as well! Also it was seriously kid-friendly-they could not get enough of this! Will definitely make again. Read More
