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,

Panini Wrap

Healthier than bread and a creative way to make ordinary wraps taste even better is a Panini Wrap!! I have featured recipes on my blog before on how to make a delicious panini wrap, but don’t often see them on menus. So, I was thrilled when I went to this great little deli in Charleston, South Carolina called Dellz Deli; which featured a whole menu of grilled wraps and pitas.

This place has only about 6 barstools… .and that’s it. The line was huge wrapped around the corner and just by the looks of the people in line, it attracted everyone!

Inside was an interactive place where the owner and her son knew their customers by name!

They are known for their “goddess dressing”, which is their secret sauce that they give you to put on your sandwich.  And whatever it was, it was amazing!  Here is a picture of my grilled wrap with the goddess dressing on the side.

Their menu consists of seasonal items and the freshest ingredients.  My wrap had brown rice and an assortment of different kinds of fresh veggies, and with the goddess sauce on the side it was delicious!!!
