Estimated values based on one serving size.

Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the tuna, mayonnaise, celery, pickle relish, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  2. On a cutting board, butter one side of each slice of bread. Flip the bread over so it is buttered-side down. Divide the tuna mixture between 2 slices of bread. Top with the cheddar cheese, then place the other slices of bread on top, buttered-side out.
  3. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Place the sandwiches in the pan and cook, without moving, for about 2 minutes, until golden brown. Carefully flip the sandwiches over and continue to cook until the other side is golden brown and the cheese has melted, 2 minutes more.
  4. Transfer the tuna melts to a cutting board and cut in half. Serve immediately.
  5. Enjoy!
