“I can't eat mayo, so I never really liked tuna until one day I tried making it like this. It's really simple, but a great alternative if you don't like mayo.”
1 sandwich

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a frying pan to medium heat.
  2. Spread one slice of bread with cream cheese.
  3. Top with tuna.
  4. Add the provolone on top of the tuna.
  5. Top with second slice of bread.
  6. Butter the outside slices of the sandwich and grill in the pan like a grilled cheese sandwich.
  7. Another option is to grill in a panini maker.
  8. A quicker and perhaps lighter option is to toast the bread in a toaster before assembling the sandwich and then microwave for 30 seconds or so just enough to melt the cheese.
  9. You can experiment with different cheeses--I have used Swiss, Munster and sharp cheddar as well.
  10. You can change the cream cheese to plain or veggie as well.
  11. If the tuna is still to "dry" for you, try mixing 1-2 tablespoons sour cream with the tuna before assembling the sandwich.
