What To Do With Leftover Tuna - Gourmet Tuna Toastie

This toastie makes an open can to tuna worthwhile. It is surprisingly good. The Tabasco sauce makes it sing and the chopped baby tomatoes and spring onion give it a café feel.

When I made this toastie for lunch today, it raised a few eyebrows amongst my colleagues. The most common response was “that is a lot of things to put into a toastie.” I am slowly educating them toasties are far from the boring three ingredient recipes coved previously.

Now all I need is a cappuccino.

Gourmet Tuna Toastie

Makes: 2 toasties

  • ½ cup tuna
  • 1 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. spring onion, chopped
  • 4 chopped baby tomatoes
  • Tabasco sauce
  • ground black pepper
  • 25g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 slices of bread
  • butter (optional)

  1. Mix the tuna, mayonnaise, spring onion, tomatoes and grated cheddar cheese in a bowl. Add Tabasco sauce and ground pepper to taste.
  2. Preheat the toastie maker and butter each of the four slices of bread (optional).
  3. Place one slice of bread, butter side down, onto the bottom grill plate.
  4. Spoon half of the mixture onto the centre of the bread.
  5. Place the top piece of bread on top of the mixture, butter side up.
  6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for the other grill plate.
  7. Gently close the lid and allow to toast for approximately 3 minutes, or until the bread has browned sufficiently.
