Air Fryer Tuna Melt
Air fryer tuna melt is an easy recipe that your entire family will love. It’s crispy, cheesy, and buttery – ready in under 15 minutes.
The key to a perfect tuna melt is choosing really good fresh bread. I like using sourdough or rye bread but you can use whatever you have on hand, just make sure it’s fresh.
– canned tuna
– sweet relish
– dijon mustard
– lemon juice
– unsalted butter
– sourdough or rye bread
– cheese slices
Start by draining the canned tuna and breaking it up with a fork. Add the mayo, lemon juice, sweet relish, mustard, salt, and pepper, and mix well.
Check for seasoning. If the tuna is a bit dry, add more mayo. Spread about 1 tbsp of softened butter on one side of each slice of bread.
Add two slices of cheese on each slice of bread, add about 1/2 cup of the tuna salad on top of the bread, and then cover with the other slice of bread.
Place them in the air fryer basket butter-side-down and cook at 400 degrees F for 5 minutes. Once the 5 minutes are up, flip the sandwich and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
Tips and Recipe Variations
