Tinned Fillings - Flavoured Tuna

Let us kick off “Bachelor toastie fillings from a can” month, with the first thing that falls out of my pantry - Thai Green Curry Tuna by Safcol. Tinned tuna makes for a great toastie filling. I am particularly fond of the flavoured tunas.

A quick walk down the canned food section of my local supermarket reveals offerings from at least three different companies (Safcol, Green Seas and John West), who combined, produce at least 30 different varieties of flavoured tuna.

The flavours offered are not that bad, they range from plain and smoked flavours, through to spicy chilly, mayonnaise, and tomato and basil, all the way to fancy flavours such as red/green and Penang curries. For the health conscious, there are even 98% fat free varieties.

I could eat tuna toasties for over a month without doubling up on flavours! However, I may find myself being followed by a long line of hungry puddy-tats!

Flavoured Tuna

Makes: 2 toasties

  • 2 x 85g tins of tuna (any flavour)
  • 4 slices of bread
  • butter (optional)

  1. If using butter, butter one side of each of the four slices of bread.
  2. Place one slice of bread onto the grill plates of a pre-heated toasted sandwich maker. If using butter, place butter side down.
  3. Spoon the contents of one 85g tin of tuna onto the centre of the bread.
  4. Place the top piece of bread on top of the filling. If using butter, place butter side up.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 for the other grill plate
  6. Gently close the lid and allow to toast for approximately 3 minutes, or until the bread has browned sufficiently.

  • Depending of the flavour of tuna, I may add some Cheddar cheese for a bit of variety.
