My big brother taught me a lot over the years – ‘snakebites’ – ouchie!, how to save a fart in a can, The Beezer – his hangover cure: 1/2 beer, 1/2 tomato juice & a shot of vodka and so much more – but believe it or not the most useful items of Big Brother wisdom have come in recipe form. Here’s a ridiculously quick meal for those nights when you haven’t eaten since noon, the baby won’t go to sleep until midnight & it’s 35 degrees (celsius) with all of the windows open….
The Tuna Melt
Your basic Tuna Melt gear: can of tuna, mayo, bread & cheese
Your optional Tuna Melt gear: hot mustard, garlic powder & mixed herbs/spices
Drain tuna & mix in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of mayo, 1 tablespoon of hot mustard, a few shakes of garlic powder & a (small) handful of mixed herbs/spices. Spread thickly on bread, top with cheese & bake at 350 fahrenheit/180 celsius/gasmark 4 for about 10 minutes, until cheese is melted.
Serve with fresh crunchy vegetables! – also makes a cozy meal in winter with a hearty soup!
