Great for kids and quick and easy to make. This classic melt contains ingredients that you can probably find in your store cupboard or fridge right now.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
160g tinned tuna in spring water, drained
1 spring onion, finely sliced
1 celery stalk, finely sliced
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
drizzle olive oil
squeeze lemon
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
4 medium slices multiseed or brown bread
60g grated mature cheddar

Method

  1. Mix together the tuna, spring onion, celery, mustard, mayonnaise, oil and lemon juice in a bowl and season.
  2. Butter one side of each slice of bread and turn them over so the butter-side is facing down.
  3. Spread half of the tuna mixture onto one slice of the bread and the rest on another slice. Divide the grated cheese over the tuna mixture, then place the remaining slices of bread on top with the butter on the outside.
  4. Heat up a frying pan over a medium heat and lay each sandwich in the pan. Fry for about 3 minutes on each side or until golden and the cheese has melted. Alternatively, cook the sandwiches in a toasted sandwich maker or panini press.

best bread:

  • multiseed or brown
