Tuna Cheese Sandwich

Here's something for cold winter days. About 5 minutes in preparation.






  • 2 pieces of rye bread, preferably Vaasan Ruispala or similar.
  • ~2 teaspoons of ketchup
  • ~½ can of tuna pieces in oil
  • 2 pieces of cheese, preferably Gouda or Emmental
  • a pinch of Provencale herb mixture or generic pizza seasoning (or basil and oregano and such)
  1.  Spread some ketchup on the bread.
  2. Open the tuna can, pour out the oil, and mush the tuna into flakes. Do NOT use out-of-tin flakes. Spread it on the bread, about ½-1 cm layer.
  3. Lay the pieces of cheese over the tuna.
  4. Sprinkle on the seasoning.
  5. Microwave until all of the cheese has melted. For more even heating (depending on your oven), position each end of the bread in the center of the oven in turn.
  6. Carefully pull the cheese all the way to the edges of the bread with a fork.
  7. Let cool for a while, preferably on a grid or something to support it to avoid the bottom getting soggy from condensation.
  8. Put in mouth, chew, swallow.
