Here is a foolproof recipe for a tasty tuna-melt sandwich. This took only ten minutes to make. To cut my cooking time down, I used a pre-diced celery and onion mix that my grocery store sells. What a way to make life easy. This tuna-melt has so much flavor. I highly recommend this for a quick but filling lunch!
One 12-ounce can of tuna drained
3 tblspns of mayo
1 tsp of mustard
1/4 tsp of celery salt
Pinch of pepper
4 tblspns of diced onion-and-celery mix
One sour pickle sandwich slice
And away we go!
In the food processor, add your onion and celery, pickle, celery salt and ground pepper. I love celery salt. It adds a nice fresh flavor to any dish. I highly recommend keeping some in your pantry.
Give this a quick pulse.
Add the drained tuna, mayo and mustard to the diced veggies.
Give this a quick pulse, but not for too long. Last time I ended up with tuna pâté. Not really a nice texture for tuna sandwiches.
It’s okay if it doesn’t mix completely. Use the spatula to hand mix it all together.
On a cutting board, place your slices of bread. Scoop a generous amount of tuna on to each slice, then sprinkle on some cheddar cheese…
I need to work fast! The scent of tuna is in the air, and I have two Applehead Siamese cats trying to take over the kitchen!
Pop the not-quite-yet-tuna-melts into your toaster oven for 3&1/2 to 4 minutes, or until the bread has fully toasted.
And now for the moment of melt-in-your-mouth truth…
Such a breeze to make! So glad you all stopped by to read my post!
