    • 2 x 185g cans tuna
    • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
    • 1 tbsp lemon juice
    • 2 tsp tomato purée

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Drain 2 x 185g cans tuna and mash the fish with 3 tbsp mayonnaise, 1 tbsp lemon juice and 2 tsp tomato purée. Season.
    2. Warm 2 large flatbreads or focaccias (such as garlic and rosemary or pesto and sweet pepper) under a medium-hot grill for 1 minute, then spoon and spread the tuna mixture over the tops.
    3. Scatter with 1 small finely sliced red onion (if time allows, marinate this in 1 tbsp French dressing for a few minutes to mellow the flavour), then divide 6 large slices of Emmental, Gruyère or Lancashire cheese (buy packs ready-sliced) between them.
    4. Cook under a medium-hot grill for 3 minutes or until the cheese is lightly browned and bubbling. Cut each flatbread into four wedges and serve two per person.

    Absolutely delicious. I make it in to a sandwich (use Warburtons sandwich thins) rather than having it on a flatbread, and it makes a gorgeous luxurious toastie for lunch. Love the flavour combination that comes out of the onions being marinated in the French dressing. One of my favourite recipes. - 10 Aug 2013
