Tuna Melts/Salad… Huh!?

Remember the time I said that I hated doing dishes? Yeah, well this recipe is PERFECT for dirtying as little as possible and still coming out with something good to OM NOM NOM. Wondering how I can make something that doubles as both a sandwich ingredient and a salad piece? Well, it all starts with a patty… You can make this with Pork, Chicken, Salmon or other fatty fish, even leftover roasted veggies! Tonight I used canned Tuna because I didn’t have the chance to hit the grocery store to pick up anything fancy, and because its pretty good for you (but mostly the grocery store part…). Its a perfectly acceptable lunch/supper for dieters if you sub out the mayo for olive oil.

Here is what you’ll need for 2 people:

Olive Oil on a paper towel
2 Small cans of Tuna packed in Water
1 tablespoon each of Mayo (or Olive Oil) and Yellow Mustard
1 egg
2 Packets of Saltine crackers, obliterated
1 or 2 slices of cheese (for the sandwich option)
A pile of Salad and Balsamic Vinegar (for the salad option)

Annihilate your crackers either in the food processor on in a bowl.

Add your Mustard and Mayo, Egg, Tuna, and a little Black Pepper.

Annihilate further until your Tuna Frappé looks like this:

Use your Olive Oil covered paper towel to smear oil around a big frying pan. Use your hands to make patties out of your Tuna Smoothie.

Turn on your heat to Medium or Medium High and cook the patties two to three minutes on each side. When you flip them, they should be golden brown.

For the Salad, prepare your plate with a pile of salad greens, a drizzle of Olive Oil, and Balsamic Vinegar. Place your hot Tuna Patty on top and ENJOY!

For the Sammich, prepare your sandwich bread (sliced artisan bread, wonderbread, 65 cent store-brand breadlike item, Hamburger Bun, or Arabic bread like the one I chose) by spreading a little extra mayo on one slice, then some salad greens, your Tuna Patty, Cheese, and the top layer of bread. NOM AWAY!

Pretty snazzy, eh? Kinda makes ya hungry doesn’t it? Does it make you feel like you want to e-mail me, too? Weird, but OK! Btchnfixins@gmail.com. Love Peace and Bacon Grease, Friends!

I would also like to take the chance to thank my official Bitchin’ Fixin’s photographer/graphics expert: Alessandro (AKA My Husband). Thank you so much for the help and support, and for answering all of my silly woman/panda-questions.
