Classic Tuna Melt

What better way to enjoy the classic sandwiches than on a panini maker?  If you’re not a tuna person, I get it- I’ve seen the smell of tuna turn people away from trying it. However, I   know of a little trick that masks its’ strong flavor and encourage more people to try it!!  One of my favorite ways to eat tuna is with a little cajun mayo mixed in, on whole wheat toast, and with some Pepper Jack Cheese, and then obviously grilled in the panini maker.  Pepper Jack cheese is the greatest way to minimize the strong tuna taste and gives the sandwich some great flavor.

Ingredients:

2 slices of Whole Wheat bread

1 can of Tuna (packed in water is healthier than packed in oil)

1 slice of Pepper Jack cheese

Mayo (or Cajun Mayo)

Assembling:

1. Mix tuna and mayonnaise together with a fork to break down the big chunks of tuna (sometimes I add in a little crushed red pepper for some extra spice)

2. Add it on to one slice of bread

3. Top it with one slice of pepper jack cheese

4. Add the second piece of bread

5. Grill on panini for 3 minutes

Enjoy,

Sani
