We’re putting a rich spin on this classic combo of tuna salad and melted cheese by using premium tuna from Spain and a blend of two of our top cheddars, plus a tangy, crunchy bite from a mix of cornichons and celery. The cheddars we’re melting into this sandwich have distinctly different flavor profiles--Neal’s Yard Montgomery’s Cheddar has a savory, almost roast-like essence that packs a bold hit, while New York State cheddar is your classically creamy, sweet variety, creating a perfectly balanced mix that mellows out the tuna’s briny brightness.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Dice celery, cornichons and red onion and combine in a large bowl.
  2. Add 2 tins of tuna, carefully flaking the tuna but not mincing it to combine.
  3. Incorporate the mayonnaise and taste. Season with salt and pepper. If you prefer a slightly tangier tuna salad, add some of the brine from the cornichons to suit your taste.
  4. Slice both the NY State Yellow Cheddar and Montgomery's Cheddar into 1/4" thick slabs. The Montgomery's Cheddar may crumble, that's ok.
  5. Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-low heat and add a tbsp butter. Swirl to cover the pan.
  6. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on two slices of bread and place them mayo side-down next to each other in the pan.
  7. Layer equal amounts of the NY State Yellow Cheddar and Montgomery's Cheddar over top of each slice. Follow by spooning equal amounts of the tuna salad on each slice of bread to cover evenly.
  8. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on two more slices of bread and close the sandwich by placing them mayonnaise side-up on top of the open-faced sandwiches cooking in the pan.
  9. Turn up the heat to medium and cook until the cheese begins to melt and the bottom slice of bread starts to golden brown, 5-7 minutes
  10. Flip each sandwich and brown the other side of the bread, additional 3-5 minutes.
  11. Slice and serve!
