If you know me, you know I love sandwiches.

I’ve been having the same turkey sandwich at dinner every night for literally somewhere around three months. I take pictures of sandwiches, I hunt them down, and I just get really excited to try new ones. (If you know of some good combos, let me know in the comments!)

I’ve also been eating a lot of tuna lately because I went crazy and got 13156467 cans of it from Costco, so I’m trying to work my way through it. Normally I just eat it in a bowl like a loon while hunched over the computer, but for this post I wanted to actually make lunch like an adult human being.

Behold the sourdough tuna melt.

The mayonnaise I used to mix with the tuna is from Sir Kensington’s and it’s made with avocado oil instead of everything else weird in your conventional brands. My fridge and my pantry are packed with condiments from SK and you can find their spicy mustard slathered on my sandwich every night. But, I digress.

Sir Kensington’s mayonnaise options (there’s SEVEN) source humane, free-range eggs and contain no GMO ingredients if you’re looking for more information behind your food purchases. There’s also a hint of lime that really helps round out the flavor. No, it doesn’t really taste like lime, but yes it tastes much better than the mayo I used to buy. You can use this link to see where it’s sold near you or simply buy online using this one. You won’t regret it.

I made the tuna according to how I like it, which involves nothing crunchy like celery or whatever people put in tuna salad. I can’t handle it. This is simply mayonnaise, salt, and pepper. If you like your crunch, by all means make it the way you enjoy it! Just don’t forget to melt that cheese.

Sourdough Tuna Melt

  • 2 slices of sourdough bread
  • 2 slices of cheese (I used pepper jack)
  • 2 tomato slices
  • baby arugula
  • 2 Tbsp Sir Kensington’s avocado oil mayo
  • 1 7 oz. can of tuna in water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Combine tuna, mayo, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. Lightly toast sourdough slices and spoon tuna onto one.
  3. Place cheese on top of tuna and place under a broiler for about 45-60 seconds until cheese is melted. I used the toaster oven, but you can also use a larger oven broiler.
  4. Remove bottom half of sandwich from the oven, top with tomatoes and arugula, and VOILA!
