  • Chef's Tips

    Some like it hot: spice up your tuna melt with a few drops of hot sauce. Or sprinkle a dash of cumin or curry powder for a little Indian flavour. Enjoy with a bowl of tomato soup for a complete lunch.


    1. Mix peppers, celery, mayonnaise and cracked pepper in large bowl.
    2. Fold in tuna – careful not to mash it too much.
    3. Spoon tuna mixture over rye bread; cover with cheese.
    4. Broil on high for 1-2 minutes or until cheese begins to bubble and brown.
