Description

Grilled cheese + tuna melt = tuna melt sandwich!

Ingredients

  • 1 can (5 Oz. Size) Tuna
  • ½ cups Mayonnaise
  • Pepper To Taste
  • 4 slices Sandwich Bread
  • 4 slices American Cheese (or Any Other Type Of Cheese You Prefer)

Preparation

Drain the tuna very well and place in a bowl. Add mayo, about 1 tablespoon at a time, until you get the desired consistency. Don’t make the tuna too moist, or it will become hard to work with later on. Grind in some black pepper to taste, and set aside.

Next, build the sandwiches. Divide the tuna mixture in half and lay a thin amount on top of 2 slices of bread. Then to each slice of bread, add 2 slices of cheese, slightly overlapping them. Close it all up with the final piece of bread on top.

Begin warming a dry pan over low heat. While that’s warming up, lightly coat the top 2 slices of bread with a very thin coating of mayonnaise, about 1-2 tablespoons per slice. Then, once the pan is warm, carefully lay the sandwiches mayo-side down. As that side starts to brown, lightly coat the bread that’s now facing up with a thin coat of mayo, about 1-2 tablespoonfuls.

It will take a while for the underside of the sandwiches to get golden brown, about 10 minutes or so. Check by carefully lifting up the sandwiches with a spatula. Once brown, gently flip the sandwiches and let them brown on that side for another 10 minutes or so. When both sides of the sandwiches are golden brown and the cheese is nice and melted, remove the sandwiches from the pan, slide them in half, and serve. Caution: they will be hot, so I’d let them sit on the counter for 5 minutes or so before you dive in.
