Tuna Melt

Blog Chef recipe
2 (6 oz) cans solid white tuna (well drained)
¼ cup mayonnaise (or use more if desired)
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 large celery rib (finely chopped)
2 green onions (finely chopped)
1 tablespoon fresh parsley (finely chopped)
seasoning salt (to taste)
ground lemon pepper or black pepper (to taste)
4 slices French bread (or Italian or Sour Dough will work)
4 tomato slices
4 slices Swiss cheese (or shredded Swiss)
Butter or margarine (for cooking)
Step 1: In a bowl combine tuna fish, mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery rib, green onions, and parsley. Add seasoning salt and lemon or black pepper to taste, and mix well.
Step 2: Compile the sandwich by layering a slice of bread, then the tuna mixture, some Swiss cheese, then tomato’s followed by more Swiss cheese. Butter a slice of bread and lay it on top of the sandwich (butter side up).
Step 3: Heat your skillet or griddle on medium heat. Place the sandwiches butter side down into your skillet. Lightly butter the slice of bread that’s facing upwards. Cook for a few minutes until nicely browned (watch them so they don’t burn) and with a metal spatula (use plastic if using a non-stick pan) flip sandwich over and cook on the other side until it’s browned. Remove from pan and serve immediately.
The Results:
I know this is such a simple sandwich and you could make a tuna melt however you want but I wanted to try it just how Blog Chef Bobby had made it. I thought this was a great sandwich and will definitely be making it again. Thanks for the yummy recipe Bobby.

Oh yum. I could seriously eat that. I haven't been able to eat much of anything today because I lost a filling :-(

I love the fresh tomatoes in the sandwich!

I never thought of cooking a tuna melt on the stove like a grilled cheese. I always do mine in the microwave and they end up soggy - what a great idea!
