  • 2 spring onions
  • 60g canned roasted red pepper, drained
  • 2 slices wholemeal bread from a 400g loaf

  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 25g Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 level tbsp extra light mayonnaise

  2. Rinse the red pepper and pat dry, then cut into thin strips.
  3. Mix the tuna and extra light mayonnaise and smooth onto
    one slice of bread.
  4. Top with the spring onions and red pepper and season with black pepper.
  5. Sprinkle over the cheese and then top with the other slice of bread, pressing down gently to seal.
  6. Preheat the grill to a medium setting. Place the sandwich in the grill pan, and toast the sandwich for 2 – 3 minutes on each side, until the cheese has melted. Make sure the bread isn’t too close to the heat otherwise the bread will toast quicker than the cheese melts.
