tuna and cheese melt

This is a really cheap, really easy and quick tea to make. Ideal for a Saturday on the sofa staring at a TV.

what you need:

  • packet of potato wedges Mexican flavour  (laaaayzy i know)
  • tin of tuna
  • big squeeze of mayonnaise & ketchup
  • 3 large handfuls of grated cheese
  • 2 onions chunkily chopped
  • 2 red pepper chunkily chopped

what you do:

  • pre-heat oven to 200C
  • toss the onion & pepper in a little olive oil & roast in a large tray for 10 minutes
  • add the frozen wedges to the tray and return to the oven (cook wedges for time specified on packet)
  • mix the tuna with the ketchup & mayonnaise – sprinkle over the cooked wedges
  • sprinkle over the grated cheese
  • return to the oven for a couple of minutes until the cheese melts.

to serve:

you’re really going to need to produce a few veggies with this number – think homemade coleslaw, sweetcorn and perhaps that perpetual children’s favourite baked beans. That’s at least 3 of your 5 a day, which balances out the laziness perfectly.

This serves 2 adults and 2 children – if you need it to go further – add more baked beans!
