Swiss Tuna Melts

I had to wait a few days for nutrition support to give the approval for this recipe and now that I got the go ahead, I am sharing it with you now. I love those guys over there! I used to love tuna melts made with swiss cheese as a child and as a matter of fact, I still do LOL! It is my all time favorite sandwich and I really did not think I could have it on the Medifast plan, but yes we can!  Well, to a certain extent anyhow. We can't have the bread, but you can make toast using pancake mix. You don't know how you say? Well click here for the pancake toast recipe and see what you are missing. This recipe uses a sliced tomato instead of bread. Enjoy my childhood favorite sandwich!
