Easy recipe: Tuna Melt

Being in Italy forces me to make my own lunch everyday. There's no hawker center here where I can easily buy cheap food for my lunch. I am a super lousy and lazy cook, I can actually just eat instant noodles everyday but I dun wanna eat unhealthy food so frequent. So I find easy recipes on internet and 'improvise' them.

Ingredients for Tuna Melt (1 portion):
- 1 can of tuna (I used the small can (80g) tuna-in-water. There're many different types of canned tuna in the market, so it depends on what kind of canned tuna you like)
- some chopped onions (the amount depends on individual preference)
- 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise (you may increase or decrease the amount depend on individual preference)
- one piece of cheese
- lettuce
- tomato

Step 1: Open the tuna can and remove the water in it.

Step 2: Chop the onions

Step 3: Mixed the tuna, onions and mayonnaise together

Step 4: Place a piece of cheese on a slice of bread, then spread the mixed tuna with onions on it. Place another slice of bread on top of the tuna spread.

Step 5: Slightly heat the tuna sandwich. I used the grill function of the microwave to heat it (because when I tried to microwave the sandwich, the bread became a bit hard). I used low heat and grilled for 1 minute.

Step 6: Take out the Tuna melt, remove the slice of bread on top and put the lettuce and tomatoes on the tuna spread. Cover the top slice of the bread again.
