Mobile Munchies Entry – Easy Tuna Melt Recipe for Truck Drivers

Getting tired of ham and cheese every day for lunch? Looking to change up that boring, bland meal? Truckers are somewhat limited in their lunch options if trying to avoid unhealthy fast food and truck stop buffets, but there are some fun sandwiches you can still make in your truck when you need a little change-up. Here’s an entry we received in our Mobile Munchies contest for a simple tuna melt recipe, courtesy of Becky Dodd.

The Recipe:

Easy tuna melt recipe for truck driversIngredients: Tuna, a slice of bread, slice of cheese (optional), mayonnaise, celery, tomato, and/or lettuce.

Directions: Cut up 1-2 sticks of celery. Mix a little mayonnaise together with the tuna. Add the chopped celery to the tuna mixture, and put mixture on a slice of bread (like an open-faced sandwich). Add a slice of cheese on top if desired, and bake in toaster oven until bread is toasted and cheese is melted. Add lettuce and tomato on top if you want, and voila! An easy tuna melt sandwich for the road.
