Tonight it was raining out. It was also hot, sticky and – all caps- HUMID so neither cooking in the oven nor on the grill for any length of time was appealing. And, I was home alone for supper, and wondering what to feed myself – and then YES! I remembered – I picked up a gluten free baguette from the grocery store. I love appys for dinner and I love tuna and I love cheese …. and so my Cheesy, cream tuna melt appy was born!
Cheesy Tuna Melts on a Baguette
- 1 can flaked tuna – drained
- 1/2 cup cream cheese
- 1 1/2 TB Ranch Dressing
- 1/8-1/4 cup mayo (to taste)
- salt & pepper
- cherry tomatoes – halved
- 2 green onion – white part only – chopped
Gluten Free Baguette sliced thinly (mine had lives in it)
Turn oven onto broil. Place slices of baguette on a cookie sheet. Broil for 5 min (keep an eye on it). Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together all of the rest of the ingredients except tomatoes. Heat mixture in microwave for 2 minutes to melt/soften. Take out of microwave and stir again. Take baguettes out of the oven. Flip over the baguettes – place a dollop of the tuna mixture onto the baguettes and top with 1/2 a cherry tomato, and sprinkle with mozzarella. Place back under broiler for about 3-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted. enJoy.
PS I think this would work as a hot dip as well!
