Instructions 

  • In a large sauté pan, over medium heat, add the olive oil, garlic and onions.

  • While the broiler is heating, place 5-6 pieces of lightly toasted bread or naan on a baking tray.
  • Spoon the tuna melt mixture onto the bread. Top with half of a fresh tomato slice and some shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Broil for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly.
