Quick Dinner - Tuna Sandwich

When I am too tired to cook this is an easy dinner at our home. I always keep tuna tins/packets handy. And tuna is a healthy food too, so I won't feel guilty of not preparing an elaborate meal. You can prepare this in no time. Pair it with a soup/salad/smoothie for a wholesome meal.


6 ounce canned tuna, drained
4 slices bread
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 tablespoons minced bellpepper
1 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons shredded cheese
1 Tbsp. butter
black pepper to taste


  1. In a small mixing bowl break up the tuna with a fork.
  2. Combine tuna, mayonnaise, onion, bellpepper, black pepper and cheese in small bowl and mix gently until combined.
  3. Glaze the grilling pan with butter. Spread the tuna mixture evenly on the pieces of bread.
  4. Grill sandwiches for 2-3 minutes, until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted. Yields 2 sandwiches.

Note: I use dosa pan for grilling, if you have a grill pan use it to have a wonderful grilling marks. You may add more cheese and mayo if you want. Toast it at low to medium heat to get golden crust on the sandwich.
