Okay I know what you’re thinking….everyone knows how to make a tuna sandwich. Yes and No. There are the tuna sandwiches that your mom mixed with crunchy things, and slapped between two slices of wonder bread…..
and there are the gourmet version of tuna sandwiches served on grilled sourdough bread! YUM!!! To achieve a green light I must now say Tuna on Grilled Sourdough 🙂 I have realized something about myself, you may have noticed it as well. When I am running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off trying to do 10,000 different things at once, I go back to my old favorites. Sandwiches served on grilled sourdough bread are another one of my favorite things to eat at Marie Callender’s Restaurant when I worked there. They should serious start paying me for advertizing!
That will never happen, because I am about to bash them 🙂 I am talking about the good old days, back in the 80’s when all of the food was freshly prepared without MSG and other crazy ingredients added!!! Just look at this beauty…..
There might be a few extra calories in this sandwich because of the cheeses, but it is so worth it! I have specified wild caught tuna, but that is a personal choice. I choose to use it because there are mean awful companies that scoop up their tuna in a net, and kill innocent dolphins in the process 🙁 Yes, it is more expensive…but I prefer not to eat Flipper! This is the brand and size of can that I am using to serve 4 people…..
wow, that is almost life sized! The actual inspiration for seasonings, I learned from my friend Brenda when I lived on Kauai. She made tuna sandwiches for her daughter’s birthday party, and I fell in love with the flavors! I usually use Pampered Chef’s Dill Mix, but any dill will work.
In other news, we finally have sunshine <insert happy dance here>!
I did not know that Locust trees dropped so much “stuff” on the ground BEFORE I planted it! Look, I even have patio furniture again…..
Yes, the colors on the outside…match the colors on the inside! Hopefully I can put the table together this week and be able to use it to help me grill some yummy food this weekend!!! I have nowhere to set down dishes. What are you plans for this weekend?
