Heirloom tomato, Avocado and Gruyere Gourmet Tuna Melts

Gourmet Tuna Melts

While my husband and I enjoy our stuffed avocado tuna cups, I use the same mixture to make these kid-friendly gourmet tuna melts for the kids. The kids love them, and I love that I feel comfortable feeding them a tuna dish with SafeCatch tuna where every fish is tested and has a 70% stricter than FDA mercury limit.

Tomato and Cheese Tuna Melts

I recommend making the paleo stuffed avocado cups for the parents, and these for the kids – it’s two dinners in one! They are super simple to make, and will give your kids the perfect amount of nutrition that their bodies need to grow. I guarantee that this dinner will be a hit in your household, and a new favorite for your kids
