Grilled Tuna and Cheese Sandwich

The grilled cheese sandwich is a classic American staple food. Grilled cheese is good for lunch, dinner and a late night snack. I put a spin on this classic American dish using tuna.

When I’m yearning for a little something extra or looking for a late night snack, I make a Grilled Tuna and Cheese Sandwich with the Sweet & Spicy flavor of StarKist Tuna Creations. It’s the perfect sandwich when I want something savory yet sweet.

Most StarKist tuna pouches are 110 calories so any of them would be perfect to add to a regular grilled cheese sandwich. (My recipe calls for Starkist Tuna Creations Sweet & Spicy which is 90 calories!)

First, I make a basic tuna salad mixing a single pouch of StarKist Tuna Creations Sweet & Spicy with a little bit of mayo, relish, onion, egg and mustard.

Ingredients

  • 1 pouch StarKist Tuna Creations Sweet & Spicy flavor
  • 1 tablespoon mayo
  • 1 tablespoon relish
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon onion
  • 1 boiled egg (optional)

Instructions

  • make the grilled cheese sandwich next. To make the sandwich, I set the tuna to the side and gather a slice of cheese (American or cheddar), two slices of wheat bread, and a tablespoon and a half of butter or margarine, (You can also use non-stick spray to cut calories.) I drop a tablespoon of the butter or margarine (or non-stick spray) in a medium-hot skillet. I spread the leftover butter or margarine on one side of each slice of bread. I then place one slice of bread into the skillet with the buttered side down and then place the cheese on top. Once the cheese has started to melt, I spoon the tuna on the cheese, placing a slice of bread on top with the buttered side up. I flip over the sandwich to brown the bread on the opposite side. When each side of the bread is golden brown I remove the sandwich. Slice and enjoy!
