Recipe: Cheesy Tuna Melts

Melted cheese. It’s the kryptonite of kids (and, to be honest, most adults too). It makes rainy days sunny, turns that frown upside down. It’s also the perfect way to make healthy snacks and lunches far more appealing to picky little palates.

2 slices of seed loaf / low-GI bread / homemade bread / bread that suits some sort of dietary requirement (see where I’m going with this?)
1 tin tuna
1 cup grated cheese (white cheeses are generally healthier. Mozzarella or a white cheddar are both ideal for this)

Smear both slices of bread with butter or coconut oil.
Mix the tuna and the cheese.
Turn the slices over so that the oil / butter is on the outside of what will be the sandwich, and put between one and two tablespoons of the tuna mixture on one slice.
Close your sandwich and place it (butter / oil side down) in a hot pan.
Fry until the bread is golden and the cheese has started to melt.
Wait for it to cool before wrapping it for your child’s lunch to avoid sogginess.
