PREP: 5 min.
COOK: 0 min.

Tuna Melt is a gorgeous treat. Food wishes has a nice open sandwich variant you should try for lunch.


  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1 can of tuna (MSC certified, please)
  • 1 slice of lemon
  • Mayo (see introduction)
  • 200 g grated Gouda
  • freshly ground black pepper & salt
  • optionally: 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
  • optionally: 1 tablespoon of chopped green onions

The tuna melt topping will at least serve two.


  • Mix mayo, tuna and cheese, using a fork
  • add pepper and salt to your liking
  • refrigerate until ready to make sandwich
  • Lay around four table spoons on first slice
  • Lay top slice on and press down
  • Cut & present to your liking

If you connect “tuna melt” with molten cheese, go ahead. Just butter the sandwich on the outside, put the sandwich on a steak skillet and cover it. Brown for 3-5 min. per side and check for melting.
