Broiled Tuna Melt

Broiled Tuna Melt
Brian Klutch

Utilize the under-appreciated broiler to whip up this muscle-building tuna melt packed with protein and flavor. 

Chef's Tip: The broiler's high heat (around 5000F) breaks apart the emulsion of fat and protein in cheese, which helps turn your cheddar or Swiss into a bubbly goodness. Just watch that it doesn't burn.

Preheat oven broiler with rack about 4 inches from the overhead heat. Place sandwich thin halves on a baking sheet. Broil until golden brown and crispy, about 1 minute. Be careful not to burn the bread.
Top halves with spinach or arugula, tomato, tuna, avocado, lemon juice, and cheese. Broil until cheese is melted, about 30 seconds.
Top with hot sauce to taste.
