Leftovers are more powerful than you may think.

At the end of the week, we’re left with a sparse fridge and only a mix match of random ingredients. This can make weekend eating more complicated…or more interesting.

Case in point, grilled tuna bacon melts. With leftover (and almost stale) rolls from our chicken caprese sub, bacon from our BBQ bacon beef wrap, and our last two slices of american cheese – we found a tasty way to repurpose them with the help of a few pantry staples that many of you would also have laying around.grilled-bacon-tuna-melt

This simple sandwich is full of multiple textures and tastes! It’s creamy, crunchy, chewy and goes down easy.
