1 Comments for "Tuna Veggie Melt"

Sherman Extension used this recipe as part of the Sherman School SKORE afterschool program fall 2019.  The youth, grades 1-5, had already made a basic grilled tuna sandwich a week prior.  This Tuna Veggie Melt was fun for the youth to prepare, as it involved a lot of chopping and cutting, but most of the children were not very happy to see so many vegetables mixed in with the tuna!  They grudgingly prepared the sandwiches but only a few, in the class of 10, were willing to actually try the sandwiches...which were pronounced "pretty good" by those brave enough to taste test.  This recipe might be more appreciated by teens or adults who want to incorporate more veggies into their meals.
