Tuna Melt

FREEZER NOTE: You can save this for freezing two ways.

A. Freeze the entire tuna melt (with cheese and tomatoe) and then simply re-heat it in the microwave for approximately 5 minutes.

B. Freeze just the tuna over toast. When you're ready to eat, re-heat the tuna over toast, put a fresh tomatoe slice (cut in 4) on top, coat with cheese and broil for approximately 5 minutes. This comes out more crisp, but takes slightly longer to make.
