Avocado Tuna Melt

I’m one of those people that never know what to make for lunch, especially when it comes to low carb lunches. It’s easy to recreate old dinner favorites, but not so easy to low carbify a sandwich, which is what I used to eat for lunch. One day, while scrolling through pinterest I saw one of those baked-egg-in-an-avocado pins and it gave me an idea. Take a tuna melt sandwich and put it in an avocado. Avocado Tuna Melt. Yasss.

All it takes is a fresh ripe avocado and a few staple pantry and fridge ingredients to create this quick and delicious meal. Mix everything together, scoop it into the avocado, top with cheese and pop it into the oven until it is a delicious melted mess.

It’s made in minutes and can be eaten with a spoon right out of the avocado shell. Having less dishes is always a big bonus, not that you need an excuse to try out this recipe!
