ironically I love tuna melts but hate patty melts.

You must elaborate!! What is it about the tuna melt that you love?? And, why no love for his sister, Patty? Hmmmmmm???

Noooo. Tuna melts are nasty.
Nasty nasty nasty.
bleh.

Needs more peeps.
Actually this sounds like one of SmG's more outre recipes (as indeed does the previous post).

Tuna melts are the greatest sandwich ever invented. I rate with Kathleen on the patty melt too.

Von- I haven't had one, but still have to agree.

hdb- no peep melts will be crossing these lips, but... I'm kind of tempted to make one, just for the gore factor.

Cannibal!

And, what's not to like about a patty melt??

Tuna melts are delicious if done right. The tuna salad has to be nice and tangy and very thick. Adding some sliced hot green chiles and black pepper does the trick. Then smeared an eighth of an inch thick on a slice of storebought bread. Some old, sharp chedder on top, and then baked in an oven or toaster oven.

It's been a really long time since I've had this.

I can totally see someone not liking it if done wrong though. Like making the tuna salad too runny and without enough seasonings (one essential, finely chopped onion), thereby making the bread soggy, or using processed cheese slices or something. I can imagine a terrible experience, and it would be a shame.

nice fresh slice of tomato, too Mandos.

No... I can't do tomato with tuna. I love both, but not together. Something in them clashes and they taste like fish skin. Old fish skin. Eating a tomato with tuna literally makes me gag.

Mandos- I see a tuna melt in your future!

Also... could you use a pilgrim in place of a tomato?

Patty melts are my favorite, but I've had a tuna melt. The picture you painted was na-asty, but I swear the tuna melts I've had were not. I am pro-melt.

LL Cool J likes 'em.

Check. Claire is pro-melt!

SMcG- the lyrics I found on the great gazoogle said this:

Uh, I'm in the mood for a tuna milk

I'm assuming they misunderstood...

He really meant Auto Tuna.

Mandos- I see a tuna melt in your future!

========================

Funny post, Jennifer. I'm reminded of my hate for sushi right up to the time I actually tried some.

Anywho, I get tuna salad on whole wheat toast with jack cheese and tomato at least two times a week. (Sometimes, this is mistakenly turned into a tuna melt, but I like it better with just the toast. Tuna melts are fine, though.)

Why do people want to melt a goddam tunafish!?!?! They don't exactly have lives of great joy and fulfillment and then someone wants to melt them!
And when it's runny and congealing on the floor, you look at it and say "Yeah, it's melted, heh heh we melted that baby alright, heh heh".
Give me a fish and cheese toasted sandwich anytime.

thunder- I'm still not convinced.

AK- I'm not touching any fish with cheese...

I'm not a big fan of tomato on a tuna melt, makes it a little soggier. Some tomato bits chopped into the tuna salad might be fine, though. Really when you bake it, the tuna salad itself should brown a bit.

I don't have any tuna or cheddar at the moment, and actually I haven't had one in years because I will only eat my mother's tuna salad, pretty much. I haven't fully reverse-engineered it yet, and am not bothering to.

all this talk, I am gonna have a tuna melt RIGHT NOW.

with TOMATO.

NOM NOM NOM.

with TOMATO

Enjoy your tinny fish skin.

Did someone mention TMTO?

Too Mah Toe.

Can't go wrong.

By "tuna", Zombie means tuna branes.

The way we are fishing them to extinction, liquefaction is the least of their worries.

A HUGE thumbs down on the Tuna melt from me, Jen. I have always wondered why I despised this sandwich, and now I suspect it is familial. I love tuna and love cheese but together they make me sick.

Never had one, might attempt to make one later today. I'm a wild one!

Mine was delicious.

hdb needs to get out more...

Dan- you're an animal!!! You're a Danimal!

ZRM- coming from a zombie... doesn't mean much.

I have tried NUMEROUS gustatory-related things suggested by this blogosphere. I have purchased rosemary Marcano almonds... heinous chocolate skittles... Chocolate Chex... I have purchased nearly EVERYTHING that Pinko has directed me too, some of which I'm sure I can't even remember, but there have been enough that the lamblets refer to the snack aisle as the Pinko Punko aisle... but... I don't think I can do the tuna melt, even though my bestest friend lahves them, and the majority of you weirdos like and/or lahve them. It just doesn't sound good... especially the tuna/tomato part. That combo has never worked on these tastebuds.

there aren't any spiders in a tuna melt.

I've looked at recipes... and although there are no spiders, there is often, mayo. Warm mayo. YUCK!

And... then we get back to what my sister said... tuna and cheese. Not going to happen.

Eat cheese or Die.

Was that e-mail from Kathleen?

Was that e-mail from Kathleen?

LOL! No... these words were misspelled on purpose.

Not just warm mayo, but mayo baked long enough to brown and form a skin.

I guess I shouldn't tell you about the anchovy pita melt. That one I *do* have with tomatoes. But no mayo, though.

Not just warm mayo, but mayo baked long enough to brown and form a skin.

Oh... yeah... that's what I want... mayo with a SKIN!! What is wrong with you people!?!

ZOMBIE!! I mean, what do you think?

It's not a lot different from hot cream cheese and artichoke and crab dip they serve as appetizers in certain fine establishments.

It's different...

ZRM- are you talking to yourself? And... one more thing... and not that you would know, cuz you can't look at fish's comments anymore or at many of his old posts, but yesterday was the anniversary of the first Zardoz. It started with the "What's he building down there!"

You have kept a schedule of Zardozes?

You have kept a schedule of Zardozes?

LOL! No, I didn't, but a video that fish linked to on another post reminded me that it was the same video that launched ZRM and I off onto trashing his place. The subject of Zardoz had come up in an earlier thread, but was continuing... the trashing then became linked with Zardoz. I knew it was in March and happened to have an email that corroborated what I thought I remembered.

I also have a pretty good memory for dates/time of the year.

linkie, Miss Jennifer?

yes, I talk to myself.


Do you ever repeat the things you say to yourself?
Like hey this is a pretty nice chair
I really like this chair
I think I'll sit in this chair

Don't let it worry you, it happens to me all the time
you know it happens to me every day
sure it happens to me

I talk to myself
But I don't listen to what I say
I get along pretty well
although I'm with me every day

do you ever disagree with things you say to yourself
like hey, I think I'll have another drink
no I don't need another
but then you get one anyway?

Don't let it worry you, it happens to me all the time
no it don't, don't listen to me
sure it happens to me every day

I talk to myself
But I don't listen to what I say
I get along pretty well
although I'm with me every day

(why does it take so long?) I'm just getting ready
(why are you always wrong?) thought I was getting better
I'm just a regular guy
I try to be a little hip
but I'm just getting by.

I talk to myself
But I don't listen to what I say
I get along pretty well
although I'm with me every day

Do you ever forget what you were talking about?
like when you talk about the Zardoz then you think about trout.
It could happen to me, though I've got my doubts....


You know I really like jelly beans. They're not tuna flavored though. Tuna flavored jelly beans would be unpopular, I think.

Green. I should paint it green.

ZRM has gotten into Kathleen's liquor cabinet. :)

Tuna flavored jelly beans. Ugh! I suppose you'd need a cheese and mayo variety as well. No tomato. :)

yesterday was the anniversary of the first Zardoz

wow -really? anyone else feel like we've been Zardozing for years and years?

A belated vote in favor of the tuna melt. I think I like it because it's tuna, so I can tell myself I'm eating something healthy, but it's still got lots of cheese. I do like patty melts somewhat better, though, especially if they slather on lots of onions.

I once had a tuna melt made on raisin bread. That sounds horrible, but actually, it was really, really good.

Actually, I think almost any grilled sandwich is going to be good. Fat, cheese, heat - what's not to like?

Raisin bread?? AHHHH!!! While I can appreciate what raisins bring to turkey stuffing... in conjunction with sausage... I really can't think of raisins/tuna/cheese without feeling a little queasy. I'm willing to try most anything, but don't think I could even give that one a try.

BUT... I'm with you onthe theory that fat/cheese/heat=good. :)

Andy- yes, lots of onions.
