What is in this Keto Tuna Melt?

This Keto Tuna Melt is very basic to appease the whole family. You could try diced up tomato, pickles or peppers in the tuna mix for an extra texture / flavour boost! In this Keto Tuna Melt there is tuna, mayo, salt, pepper, cheddar cheese and a 90 Second Keto Bread.  

How to make Keto Tuna Melt

First step is to make the 90 Second Keto Bread and turn the oven on to broil. Open a can of tuna and drain the liquid out. Put half of the can into a bowl with some mayo, salt and pepper to taste. Mix with a fork.

Place the bread on a baking sheet and spread 1/2 tbsp mayo evenly on each piece of 90 second keto bread. Divide the tuna mixture between the two breads and top with the sprinkled cheddar cheese.

Broil in the oven for 1-2 minutes, until the cheese has melted and begun to bubble. Remove from the oven and serve hot.

Is Tuna Good on Keto?

Tuna is great on the keto diet! There is zero carbs in tuna which of course is excellent. It is high is protein and low in fat, but when mixed with mayonnaise or olive oil to incorporate more fat, tuna is an excellent choice for keto.  

Is mayonnaise ketogenic?

Yes mayonnaise is also great on the keto diet. There is only 0.1g carbs in 1 tbsp which is the best part. With 10g of fat and 0.1g protein in the same 1 tbsp, mayo is a great way to increase your fat intake without adding protein!

    I can never resist a tuna melt. One of my friends is doing a keto diet and is always asking me what to make. I might send her your way, because she would be all over this 🙂

    I tried keto for a few months and had great results although I know its more of a lifestyle change in the end. I plan to get more into again after the holidays and I’ll be on the hunt for protein-rich meals. This looks like everything I love without all the extra carbs!

    This looks great! I just started Keto, day two already feeling myself to crave carbs and am getting super cranky, so definitely need to try that keto bread too! I love that I can eat cheese though, it’s a lifesaver!

    • Hey Georgie, yes it definitely helps kick that carb crave to the curb! I love sandwiches and breads, so this is an excellent dish to feel fully satisfied 🙂
