Chrissy Teigen’s Ultimate Tuna Melt

Ingredients

  • 2 tins tuna in spring water, drained

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/3 cup yellow onion, diced

  • 2 Tbsp sweet pickle relish

  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

  • Salt & black pepper

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter

  • 4 slices country white bread

  • 6 slices vine-ripened tomatoes

  • 6 thick or 12 thin cheddar slices

  • Adapted from self.com

Let's get Cooking...

  1. In a bowl, combine the tuna, mayonnaise, onion, relish, mustard, 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, and 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper and mix until incorporated.

  2. Spread one tablespoon of butter on one side of each piece of bread, then flip the slices over so they are buttered-side down.

  3. Divide the tuna mixture between two slices of bread, then top with the tomato slices and cheddar. Place the remaining two slices of bread on top, buttered-side up.

  4. Heat a heavy cast-iron pan over low heat, and toast the sandwiches until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden and toasty, 5–6 minutes per side.
