  • I love this tuna melt recipe and melts in the mouth. Definitely a great festive tuna melt treat or any other day would be perfect too. I can’t wait to start on my festive baking which has been put off a lot of times due to crazy work.
    This is a nutritious and healthy dish – everything is perfect!

  • you guys are soooo funny and amazing, sitting here waiting to go out for mother’s day lunch and I’d happily skip it for this sandwich. But alas, my kids want to go out so we will and make this tomorrow for sure,

    love you
    julie

    • Julie!! You just made us so happy!!!! Happy Mother’s Day to you!!!! Please let us know how the tuna melt turns out! We think you’ll like it! (the kids, too!). xoxo Kris & Wesley

    • Thank you, Peggy! That is so wonderful for you to say, and we do agree, too! It’s pretty yummy. So glad you enjoyed it and thanks so much for letting us know!! Best, Kris & Wesley

  • That tuna melt looks absolutely amazing! I have never had a tuna melt and will certainly give it a try. Seeing the sandwich wrapped in paper just makes it that much more appetizing. What is it about a sandwich wrapped like that? Quick question. Are you using a little individual induction burner? I’m in the market for one. Do you have a recommendation. Thanks so much and keep the videos and recipes coming. Always excited to see in my inbox that a new one is up.

    • Hi Sherry! Wrapping the sandwiches in the sandwich paper was Wesley’s idea, but I agree, just makes you want to grab it and eat it immediately! You should give this tuna melt a try, it’s so tasty.

      For our videos, we use a hot plate that is very efficient, especially after you get used to it. The brand is: Rosewill Home.

      Thanks again!! xoxo

      • I have all the ingredients now to make the melt. Can’t wait. I found the hot plate on Amazon for a very reasonable price. Thank you for sharing that information.
