These Sweet Potato Tuna Melts Make Lunch Fun Again

If you’re a fan of tuna melts, you’ll love this fun twist on the classic sandwich. Instead of building the melt on bread, this recipe subs in roasted sweet potato rounds! It’s still the same protein-packed lunch you love, just with a little extra veggie power.

First you’ll need to roast the sweet potato rounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet. While that’s happening, you can make your tuna salad and get all the toppings prepped. For the tuna salad you’ll need your favorite canned tuna, red onion, celery, mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, paprika, salt, pepper, and mustard.

Once the sweet potato rounds are ready, you spoon over some of the tuna mixture, add your toppings (the author suggests sliced tomato and avocado), and then seal the deal with a slice of cheddar cheese. The final step is putting the “sandwiches” under the broiler before serving to get that signature melty, gooey cheese topping.

This is a great recipe for anyone who can’t tolerate wheat bread (and who’s not so excited about the gluten-free bread options out there), or just someone looking to switch up their lunch routine!
