The celebration continues....

We also made tuna melts on our new griddle. This is my husbands cooking creativity shining through. We will never have a plain tuna melt again!!! I love that my husband likes to cook. Sorry but I forgot to take a picture of the finished sandwich.

Tuna Melts
1 favorite container of tuna
2Tbsp mayo
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp teriyaki 
pinch of chipotle
favorite cheese we used sharp cheddar
bread and room temperature butter

In a bowl mix tuna, mayo, salt, paprika, pepper, teriyaki and chipotle. spread butter on one side of the bread and place face down on your skillet, cookie sheet or griddle * then place a peace of cheese on top of the bread then spread some of the tuna mixture and just for good measure place another slice of cheese on top of the tuna followed by another slice of bread with butter on the outside.

*We made ours on the griddle and it took about 3-4 min. on each side @ 400 degrees. We have made them in the oven before it takes longer about 15 minutes and you have to flip them. You can also use a skillet to make them medium heat 4-5 min. on each side.

  1. Thanks for the great idea and new twist on tuna melts, ours are so boring. We do open-faced with no spices so this will be fun to try. We love having a griddle, too!
