Ingredients

  • 2 5-oz cans Solid White Albacore, drained
  • 1/4 cup celery, diced finely
  • 1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 6 tablespoons Kewpie, Japanese mayonnaise
  • 2 dill pickles, diced
  • 1 teaspoon of dill pickle juice
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed with the flat of a knife
  • 8 slices of sourdough bread
  • 1 bag of Kettle potato chips
  • 16 slices of Muenster cheese – enough to cover each slice of bread

Directions

Combine tuna, celery, green onion, dill, pickles and mayo – mix well. Season to taste with salt & pepper.

In a small pot, put butter and garlic – allow to melt slowly.

Put on enough cheese to cover one slice of bread. Top with tuna, add a layer of chips, another layer of cheese and top with second piece of sourdough – repeat 3 more times.

Heat a non-stick pan to medium, brush the top of one sandwich with the garlic butter, and place butter-side down in the pan. Cook until golden brown, brush the top with garlic butter and flip and finish cooking.
