I have brought the basic tuna sandwich to a new level.  I bumped it up a few notches by adding dill pickle relish, capers and cheddar cheese.  Then I made it warm and toasty in a panini press.  The result was amazing!  It was tangy and salty from the relish and capers and the combination of the melted cheese and mayo was ooey, gooey goodness.

This fabulous sandwich only takes a few minutes to prepare, so next time you’re in the mood for a tuna sandwich, take it to the next level with this tuna and cheddar panini melt!

Tuna and Cheddar Panini Melt

  • 1 – 6 oz can all white tuna, drained
  • 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 heaping tbsp dill pickle relish
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • black pepper
  • 4 slices whole grain bread

Combine all ingredient, except the bread, in a small mixing bowl.  Stir until well combined.

Spread mixture onto 2 slices of bread, top with the other two slices.

Grill in a panini press or on a grill pan until cheese is melted and bread is golden and toasty.

Serve immediately!
