Cheddar Tuna Melts

These cheddar tuna melts are the perfect quick dinner that can be prepped and made within 20 minutes or frozen for later.  The fresh flavor of pesto with the creamy tuna mix make these a winner every time.

As a kid I always loved when my mom would put cheddar slices on Ritz crackers and put them in the toaster.  I also love my mom’s tuna salad recipe (as do my kids!).  Lastly, I absolutely love, love, love pesto.  The fresh burst of basil makes my mouth happy every time.  This recipe is a delightful marriage of them all.  The pesto recipe is my favorite and is straight from the cookbook From Freezer to Table .  If you missed my Christmas gift recommendations for mom, then check out the cookbook along with other ideas here!

Bon appetit!

As you may have noted in the recipe, this is how I store my homemade pesto.  1 cube = 2T of pesto.  I love this method of freezing and have used it for many things – flavored ice cubes for punch, pureed baby food, mint leaves in water, etc.
