Lemony Tuna Melt

If you glance over at my meatless post, where I despair or coming up with good meatless friday dishes,  you will see several responses. In fact, several people took pity on me and it is the post with the most. Most responses I mean. One was from Jessica. She gave me lots of ideas and we tried one yesterday for lunch and it was wonderful! Dear hubby, of course, does not say that exactly. But you just need to understand his code. “You can make this anytime!” is code for “that was wonderful”. Since he is the picky one in the family, that one little comment has more significance. I even took a picture. (okay, so I take lots of pictures.)

Its very easy and you will truly enjoy this one

You just need

  •  a can of tuna
  • some mayonaise, about 1/3 cup, what you usually use for a tuna sandwich
  • a heaping teaspoon of sweet relish
  • a heaping teaspoon of capers (secret ingredient, shhh!)
  • 1 lemon
  • cheese, your favorite, grated

Mix those first 4 ingredients all together in a small bowl. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon over it.

Now you need your bread. Butter the outsides, like you would for grilled cheese. You can put mayo or mustard on the inside, your preference. On your George Foreman Grill or panini grill or pan of choice, lay the first slice butter side down, add a large scoop of  tuna, top  with grated cheese then the other slice of bread, butter side up.

Now grill until browned. Eat hot with some chips or salad on the side.


Thanks to Mrs. Jessica Messimer for sharing that wonderful idea. You can make this for me anytime!
