Ask the bakery manager at your grocery store if they have any day-old sourdough bread. It will be less expensive, and since youre going to toast it, it will taste just as good as fresh bread.
6 oz water-pack tuna
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp prepared mustard
1 Tbsp sweet pickle relish
1 tsp minced onion
8 slices sourdough bread
4 slices American cheese
Preheat the broiler. Flake the tuna in a bowl. Add mayonnaise, mustard, relish and onion; mix well.
Toast sourdough slices lightly on both sides in toaster or under broiler.
Spread tuna mixture on 4 of the bread slices. Arrange on rack in broiler pan. Place cheese slice on each.
Broil until cheese is melted. Top with remaining bread slices. Cut into halves diagonally. Serve immediately.
Feel free to use whatever cheese you have on hand. Monterey Jack and Swiss cheese also work well. Youll be out of the kitchen fast if you substitute melba toast for the bread and omit step 2. Serve as open-face sandwiches.
