"The Tuna Melt"
Crunch time!! So many things happening, so little time to do them all.. So in the spirit of a speedy week, I'm posting a quick recipe of my very successful imitation of the beloved Tuna Melt sandwich from Costa Coffee.. If you've been following D's Kitchen for some time, you must have read at some point how much I love that nutty, gooey, beautifully toasted sandwich of theirs!! Loved it so much I had to try making it myself, and I'm quite happy to say it tastes as yummy if not even better ;) Thanks Costa but I don't need you anymore..
Easy. Prep & Cook Time: ~ 10 minutes
- ~ 1/2 multi grain baguette (about the size of costa's sandwich)
- ~ 100g canned tuna (in sunflower oil, but drained)
- 1 - 2 tsp low fat mayo
- 2 TBL mild Cheddar, grated
- 1 TBL mature Cheddar, grated
- 1 TBL Emmental cheese, grated
- generous amount of cracked pepper
In a small bowl, mix the tuna, cheeses, low fat mayo and cracked pepper until it turns into a smooth paste.. Cut the baguette in half and across, then spread a generous amount of this delicious tuna goodness (make sure to fill them up, do not be stingy like Costa :) .. Place the sandwiches in a toasting bag or grill press and toast until golden brown.. Serve with some sliced cucumbers and voila!
