This is an old standby for us here at the Okie Ranch. We call it a Tuna Melt, or Peorian sandwich. it's pretty simple, but it sure is good and rib sticking especially when the weather turns cooler.

Just some good solid sourdough bread on a hot buttered griddle, a ton of grated Colby or cheddar, a can of drained solid tuna (that's right, one can per sammich), top with some julienne sweet onion and sweet bell pepper and a little asiago peppercorn dressing.


Sorry for the fuzzy foto, but I think I was in a hurry to eat.

Sure looks good Tim. A whole can you say? Sounds pretty filling. Growing up we used to have what was called grilled tuna sandwiches. Pretty close to yours. I haven't had em in decades.

Tuna is a health pill for me and my usual diet, so the more the merrier. We don't have any prollem eating the sammies with a whole can apiece.

We had both kinda forgotten them until the last cool wave blew in. Funny how weather affects your appetite.

We eat a lot of tuna salad sandwiches, but not tuna melts... Yours look so good, I'm gonna have to try it... Might throw some sliced up pickled jalepeno on there tho... for soe reasong that sounds good too. Thanks for the idea!

I don't know what a little heat would hurt.

I do that from time to time, but mine isn't as elaborate, just tuna, mayo, & cheese..........no peppers, tomato or other stuff.

The sweet onion and pepper are what makes it IMHO. It adds sweet and crunch to the party.

You haven't had tuna casserole until you've had it smoked.
