Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    for 4 or more sandwiches
    note: we buy everything from Trader Joes, but all ingredients can be purchased elsewhere. Tuna in olive oil is hard to find in most stores.
    ingredients:
    2 cans of tuna in olive oil partly drained, but keep enough to help make a spread of the mixture
    (if you buy tuna in water, add 1-2 tbs. of olive oil to ingredients. We prefer albacore tuna)
    1 large roasted red pepper from a jar, minced (pimentos can be substituted. You can also roast your own)
    3-6 small artichoke hearts - canned (about 1/2 can)
    1 tbs of dijon mustard
    1 tbs lemon
    1 tbs of oregano or to taste. Italian herb mix is a good substitute
    1-2 tsp ground garlic, or to taste. Eliminate if you do not like garlic.
    You can add about 1/8-1/4 cup or more of fresh red onion

    1 loaf of ciabatta bread or similar dense chewy bread.

Directions

Combined tuna, red pepper, artichoke hearts, mustard, lemon, oregano (or other herbs), and garlic (if using) in bowl and mash together so that it is easy to spead. You may need to add a tbs. or more of olive oil if you are using tuna with water.

Cut bread in half lenghtwise, to make long flat pieces. You will want 1/2 of one long piece (1/4 of teh loaf for each serving. Toast to light brown. Spread with butter or margarine if you prefer (not added to my ingredient list), then spread with mixture. You c an also drizzle a little olive oil over the bread as a substitute.

Add avocado slices on top (calories not included in ingredients) Sprinkle with generous helping of shredded cheese.Sprinkle the whole thing with shredded cheese.

Place bread and tuna sandwiches under broiler for 1-2 minutes until cheese has melted. Cut in half again and enjoy.

Serving Size: makes 4-6 sandwiches

Number of Servings: 4
