The month of September is coming quickly to an end with only a couple of days left until the changeover to October happens. During this past month I have themed my “Tablespoon Of Geek” posts around what I believe to be the major event of the month, back to school. Now that the changing of the months is upon us this means that today it will be my last “Back to School” recipe post for the year.
For those who have been keeping up my back-to-school recipes have been aimed at the broke and starving college student. Essentially the idea is to take all of those cheap bulk meals and enhance them into something that is actually tasty. With all the recipes it did not cost me more than 20 dollars for all the ingredients and made the servings large enough for at least a couple meals at that price.
Up to this point I have used the college food essentials of Kraft Dinner, Ichiban and Peanut Butter Sandwiches. Talking to my friends and speaking from my own experiences there are still a number of other things that helped to keep their bellies full during times when money was more than tight.
For today’s recipe I will be using the ever cheap can of tuna, in making Cheesy Tuna Melts.
Ingredients that are needed for two open face sandwiches will be as follows.
1 Can of tuna
2 slices of Bread
1 tbsp of Mayonase
2 tbsp of Ranch Dressing
¼ cup of chopped Celery
2 tbsps of Parmesan Cheese
2 slices of Tomato
2 slices of Swiss Cheese
1 tbsp of Honey Mustard
Turn on your oven and set it to 350 degrees this will come in handy at a later point.
Start out by getting a small to medium sized bowel and then empty the can of tuna into said bowl. Now add the Ranch Dressing, Parmesan Cheese, Honey Mustard and the Celery to the Tuna and mix it all together by use of a fork.
Slather the Mayonase onto the two slices of bread evenly on one side, then on the mayo side place the slice of tomato. The next step is to put half of the Tuna mixture on top of the tomato on each of the bread slices, and then top them both off with the swiss slices. Once this is complete place both the open face sandwiches onto a baking tray and place in the oven for 15 min.
Once the cheese is all melty on top they arready to serve and devour, so Enjoy. This dish is very salty and I find it best to serve with a side of something sweeter like a healthy choice of fruit.
