Tuna Melt w/Sun Dried Tomatoes & 12 Gr Bread

Jan W


This is my entry for this week's Sandwiches, Sammiches & Sammies challenge.
I wanted something different, and this seemed to work for me! Wish I could say my husband liked it, but he refuses to eat tuna! I ate it & think it's a really neat idea!
Hope you will all give it a shot & keep an open mind when you're reading the ingredients...Enjoy!
