Take the tuna sandwich to the next level

There’s nothing better than a good ol’ tuna sandwich—or its close cousin, the good ol’ open face tuna melt. But there are times when you’re looking for something a little—well, different.

You’ve come to the right place. Here are some of our suggestions for giving the tried-and-true tuna sandwich with a little extra pizzazz.

  • Who says it has to be cheddar? Cheddar is the classic accompaniment for a tuna sandwich. But there’s no reason why you can’t use provolone. Or mozzarella. Or even brie.
  • Spice it up. Add a little Dijon mustard to the tuna mixture. Put in a dash of hot sauce. Dust a little cayenne or paprika on the top of your tuna melt. Or if you’re feeling really adventurous, add a little chipotle in adobo.
  • Add some crunch. Ask yourself whether a little shredded lettuce or coleslaw would be nice. Try adding finely-diced celery or even dill pickles to the mix. The contrast between crunchy vegetable and creamy, rich tuna elevates both.
  • Flavour anyone? Ocean's Tuna come in a variety of flavours from spicy to mellow. They’re the perfect solution for those looking to give their tuna sandwich an extra shot of something special.
