I’d like nominate Sundays as the best day of the week.
Can I share my favorites from last night? I loved: Cate Blanchett, Mila Kunis, Mandy Moore (hello! where has she been?). Your turn…!
I’d also like to nominate the tuna melt as the best sandwich. Ever.
I first had a tuna melt with carmelized onions at this little cafe I’ve frequented, and it’s stayed with me. Don’t you love that?!
I’m smitten. I decided to recreate it. And then I remembered how some of you advised putting potato chips in it; so I listened. Double-smitten!
A perfect tuna melt should have the following: buttered bread so the outside is crispy and golden brown…
good quality tuna and carmelized onions….
good cheese (that’s grated so it melts evenly)…
AND, if you’re crazy and living dangerously, potato chips. DOOO IT!
Jazzed Up Tuna Melt
1 yellow onion, sliced
1 tsp of olive oil
1 can of albacore tuna
1 heaping teaspoon of mayonnaise
Salt and Pepper
1 teaspoon of softened butter
Four slices of bread of choice
In a small pan, add the olive oil and sliced onion. Cook for 30 minutes, or until carmelized. Set aside.
Grab a small bowl and add the tuna, mayonniase and season with salt and pepper. Mix together.
Butter both slices of bread. Turn bread slices, buttered side down and add the tuna, carmelized onions and cheddar.
Add sandwich to non-stick pan and heat over medium heat until bread is golden brown. Flip and cook until you get the same results: golden brown and cheese oozing out of the sides.
Slice and serve. And if you’re living dangerously, add potato chips.
