  • Chef's Tips

    Try this one with thinly-sliced Brie for extra creaminess. Use arugula instead of spinach.


    1. Mix sundried tomatoes, basil and mayonnaise in a small bowl.
    2. Spread thin layer of mixture over sourdough; add spinach leaves, tuna and cheese, and top with another slice of bread.
    3. Heat butter in a large non stick fry pan. Fry sandwiches over medium/high heat on both sides, until golden brown and cheese begins to melt.
