Tuna Melt Slice

*Tuna Melt Tart*
Serves 6

This fabulous tart is so simple to make and so delicious.  All you need  on the side is a mixed salad!

185g baking mix (I use my own homemade mix, you can find the recipe here:
https://sites.google.com/site/oakcottagerecipes/homemade-baking-mix) (1 1/2 cups)
80ml boiling water (1/3 cup)
220g tin of albacore tuna in spring water, drained and flaked (12 ounce)
60g prepared ranch salad dressing (1/4 cup)
3 TBS finely chopped spring onions
salt and black pepper to taste
6 baby plum tomatoes, sliced thinly
3 slices strong cheddar cheese, sliced in half diagonally

Preheat the oven to 225*/425*F/ gas mark 7.  Line a baking tray with some baking paper.  Set aside.

Stir the boiling water into the baking mix to make a soft dough. (You may need a bit more water. You want it to be a tiny bit tacky.) Shape into a ball.  Roll out to a 13 inch round on a lightly floured surface using a floured rolling pin.  Transfer to the baking tray.Roll up the edges 1/2 inch all around to make a rim.  Bake for 6 to 8 minutes until light golden brown.

While it is baking flake the tuna into a bowl.  Mash it together with the spring onion and ranch dressing.  Taste and adjust seasoning as needed with some salt and black pepper. 

Remove the crust from the oven. Spread the tuna mixture over top thinly, covering it completely. Top with the tomato and cheese slices in a decorative manner.  Return to the oven for 3 to 4 minutes to melt the cheese.  Cut into wedges to serve.  Serve hot.
