Easy Grilled Tuna Melt

Last season Crown Burger in Salt Lake City was featured on Man vs Food. They were featured for their pastrami burger and I thought that was a darn shame because their tuna melt is AWESOME. They grill it on sourdough bread and it's sinfully good.

My tuna melt is a bit on the healthier side but still tasty.  This recipe makes 4 servings.

  • 2 6-ounce cans of albacore tuna, drained
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (make it light if you're counting calories)
  • 2 tablespoons honey dijon mustard
  • 1/2 of a large celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 large dill pickle, chopped
  • 8 slices of whole wheat bread
  • Sharp cheddar cheese
  1. Combine tuna with mayonnaise, mustard, chopped celery and pickles.  Mix well. 
  2. Use either  a large skillet or an electric fry pan and turn to medium heat.
  3. Butter four slices of bread and place the butter-side down in skillet. Cover with lid. 
  4. Let cheese melt.

When cheese has begun to melt, add tuna mixture and cover with another slice of buttered bread. (Put non-buttered side on tuna mixture.) Flip over. Toast until both sides are done. Serve with pickles or chips. :)
