This is another twist on the classic tuna melt.
Mustard (to taste)
Mayonnaise (to taste)
Capers (to taste)
Basil, torn (to taste)
Cheese, sliced or shredded (we used pepper jack)
Toast the bread. (This step is key to a good tuna melt, in my opinion.)
If you like your tuna to be smooth and creamy:
Combine the tuna, mustard, and mayo. Blend together using a food processor or an immersible blender. Then stir in the capers and basil.
If you like some chunkiness in your tuna:
Combine about 2/3 of the tuna with the mustard and mayo. Blend together using a food processor or an immersible blender. Then stir in the remaining tuna, the capers, and the basil.
If you like very chunky tuna:
Mix the tuna, mustard, mayo, capers, and basil together.
Spread the tuna mixture on the toasted bread. Top with cheese and broil until the cheese is bubbly and a bit brown.
Tasty. Definitely repeatable. Tuna melts are another meal that lends itself very well to variations. Add feta, pickles, hot sauce, or something else that strikes your fancy, and you've got a delicious new twist on a classic.
