  • 4 slices of bread sourdough is my favorite, but anything works
  • 5 oz tuna
  • 1 spoonful mayonnaise more or less, depending on if you like or love mayo. I love that stuff.
  • 1 Tablespoon mustard
  • 1 to mato diced
  • 2 avocados
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese shredded or sliced
  • salt and pepper


  1. Toast your bread.
  2. While it toasts, stir together your tuna (drain it first, if it's in cans), mayo, mustard, and tomato. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Mash up your avocados and spread it on your bread, then top with tuna mixture and sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Broil for 2-4 minutes (keep a close eye on it!), until the cheese is hot and bubbling. Dust with pepper, if you're a pepper lover like me, and serve immediately.
