Cheese Harmony:
Sprinkle a generous portion of reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese over the tuna salad. This cheese harmony will melt into a velvety crescendo under the broiler, enveloping the tuna in a blanket of gooey perfection.
Broiler Ballet:
Gently place the baking sheet under the broiler, allowing the cheese to melt and bubble. Keep a watchful eye, ensuring the Tuna Melts achieve the ideal level of golden brown perfection.
