Tuna Melt Toastie

This week's new recipe is a fresh, zesty, and indulgent tuna melt toasted sandwich.

This delicious toasie is packed full of fillings. If you prefer less filling feel free to divide it between two sandwiches. If you're making this for more the one just increase the amounts based on the number of sandwiches you'll be making.

I’ve used a Red Leicester sharp cheddar (hence the colour) but feel free to add your favourite cheddar. Also, use some thick sourdough bread for the best results.

If you love this toastie you'll also love my Greens Loaded Toastie with Fresh Basil & Feta.

I hope you love this one. Let me know if you make it @gatherandfeast and feel free to ask me any questions.
