Whale-wiches

Ingredients

  • 1 pouch (7 ounces) chunk light tuna
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 4   hot dog buns
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 4 small lettuce leaves

Directions

  1. Empty the pouch of tuna into a Classic Batter Bowl. Break apart the large chunks of tuna with a fork. Add the mayonnaise and pickle relish to the tuna and mix well. 

  2. Cut each hot dog bun open using the serrated edge of the All-Purpose Spreader. Place the bottom halves of the buns on a cutting board. Using the Crinkle Cutter, cut each slice of cheese in half from corner to corner. (You should have 8 triangles of cheese.) 

  3. To make each sandwich, put a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of the bun. Place 2 cheese triangles on top of the lettuce at both ends of the bun to make "fins" and a "tail."

  4. Using the Small Scoop, place 3 scoops of tuna mixture over the cheese and lettuce. Place the other bun half on top. Decorate with "eyes" and "water spouts," if you'd like.

Cook's Tips:

To make the "eyes," slice black olives using the Egg Slicer Plus® and "glue" them to the top of the bun using mustard. To make the "water spouts," cut 2 sticks of mozzarella string cheese in half from end to end to make 4 long strings of cheese, then pull down thin strings of cheese. Push them into the tops of the buns.
