No Bread Tuna Melt!

That's right folks...

I made myself a No Bread Tuna Melt!

Nothing like a little creativity to get things going on the eating front! (Oh, how easy it is to get me excited! lol)

So let's get to it...


  • 1 Long Red Pepper (or a normal sized pepper, colour of your choice)
  • 1 small can of Tuna packed in water - drained (you can pick a flavoured kind if you so choose)
  • 1 small handFUl of Lettuce
  • A few slices of All├ęgro Cheese
  • Mustard 


  1. Turn your oven on to 415F or take out your sandwich grill
  2. Slice open your pepper in half (you can cut straight through it or simply one half of it)
  3. Fork in your Tuna on one half of your Pepper
  4. On the other half, add your Lettuce, Cheese and Mustard
  5. Once all ingredients have been added, put your Tuna Sandwich on a baking pan and place it in the oven (or grill it) for about 15 minutes (until your cheese has melted)...

Tip: Cook longer to avoid juiciness. 

Once ready...

Remove your Tuna Melt from the oven (or grill), plate it, slice it open and enjoy!

Other Sandwich Ideas:

1. Sliced Chicken
    Goat Cheese

2. Hummus
    Olive Tapenade

Optional: You can eat it cold!

Hope you like it!

    this reminds me of how i will sometimes use pepper chunks as chips for dipping into bean dip instead of chips for a low carb option! this is a fab idea.
