Mini Tuna Melt Sliders #BumbleBeeB2S

These Mini Tuna Melt Sliders are perfect for back-to-school nights on the go or even portable in school lunches.  They hold together well and taste great hot and toasty from the oven or even cold chilled as a snack or for lunch.

Bumble Bee Tuna is a great low fat source of protein and along with being affordable, it tastes great!  We have long been tuna fans in our house, I even converted our three year old onto these - what kid doesn't like fun mini bites of food?

Now that our two oldest kids are back to school {5-day/week preschool & 2-day/week preschool, respectively} I'm finding myself more on the go.  Pick-ups, drop-offs and everything in between it seems we are busier than we were during the summer and at home.

What I love about these sliders is that they require minimal ingredients, there is no messy 'draining of the tuna can' with Bumble Bee's easy pouches and you can eat them hot or cold.

We ate these one day for lunch, while the kids were coming and going in and out of the house {and never shutting the door behind them!} and they got rave reviews.  The crispy toasted sourdough holds the tuna salad well and the fresh sliced garden tomato and cheese just put it over the top.

Although we ate them as a meal, they also be great as a party appetizer!

I kept the tuna salad simple, I didn't feel the need for it to get fancy.  Our favorite way is simply mayo, mustard, chopped dill pickles, salt and pepper.  That is it!  You can use Bumble Bee Premium Albacore Tuna or Light Tuna which can be purchased in these handy pouches or in cans.  We found ours at Walmart.

I also used my homemade pickles.  {If you haven't tried those, you need to!}

What convenient meals do you make out of tuna?  The classic tuna noodle casserole?  Eat it plain with crackers?  Tell me how!

Try to remember, lunch and dinner do not have to be a stellar 5-course meal.  Keep it simple.  Sometimes the best meals or snacks are the ones that require little effort.  Like these!
