I often think up recipe ideas that sound good in my head but may not always translate into a blog-worthy recipe. These tomato tuna melts are one of those ideas I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. My first attempt I baked the tomatoes, so they were soft and warm but they were pretty messy to eat. Then I thought, why not just broil them so they stay firm and it worked out perfect, plus this only takes 5 minutes to make! Great for gluten-free and low-carb diets.
