Once again I have stolen a recipe from The Pioneer Woman and made it my own. This time I should have left well enough alone. I think her version probably tastes better, though mine was good! Yesterday, I was tired and cranky and so was my husband. Little C decided to wake up every hour on the hour starting at 2 and well those of you with toddlers understand that when this happens you may not be at your best the next day. When this happens I crave comfort food and so does my husband. One of his favorite comfort food meals is Tuna Melts. Here is her recipe and I will include the adjustments I made at the end. http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/06/tuna-melts/
Here are the changes I made.
I used Dave’s Killer Bread instead of english muffins
I used monterey jack cheese
I didn’t have a fresh bell pepper so I used a jarred, roasted red pepper (it would have been better with the fresh red bell, the soft roasted pepper threw the texture off)
I added a slice of tomato under the cheese
I didn’t have sweet gherkins (though I wish I did) so I used a jar of sweet relish
