You might of read on the About Toas-Tite Recipes page that I told Girl to put Toas-Tites on our list of things to do, if not, go check it out and see how all of this came to be.
Anyways, I figured I would put up the Toas-Tite that began my love affair with this unique gadget. My family would always make hot Tuna Melt Toas-Tites after a long day in the cold ocean and it always hit the spot.
I feel there are many ways to create a delicious Tuna melt Toas-Tite so I figure I’ll put up a few recipes and let you experiment.
- 2 Slices of sourdough
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Raw Chopped Cucumber or Chopped Celery or Chopped Sweet Pickles or Relish
- Salt and Pepper
- Open can of tuna. Separate water from tuna
- Combine tuna, salt, pepper and mayo in a bowl and mix together (see bottom for more possible options)
- Butter one side of each of your pieces of bread and place one piece of bread buttered side down
- Fill bread with tuna concoction and add cheese on top
- Place the other piece of bread on top of your filling, buttered side up
- Clamp the Toas-Tite sandwich grill and cut off the excess bread
- Melt on!
Feel free to add all of the extra ingredients from the above list, but maybe only one helping of either the sweet pickles, cucumber, relish, or the celery. I would at least have tuna, salt, pepper mayo and one of the previously stated crunchy items but, the beauty of the Toas-Tite is to create what fits best for you and yours! Also if you use a cheese, try and stay away from cheddar as it tends to put a little more oil out as it melts. And when picking tuna, I always go for tuna canned in water, as the tuna canned in oil is just to slick of a texture for me.
This really is one of my favorite Toas-Tites of all time, and after a few years of dormancy Girl sparked my love for Toas-Tites all over again. Also, tomato soup is a great companion for this Toas-Tite. Luckily I met Girl who brought back my love of the Toas-Tite and all things awesome. Toast on and Enjoy!!!
