1 can (170 g) CLOVER LEAF® Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water, drained
2 tbsp Olive oil
2 Onions, White, medium, sliced
2 tbsp Mayonnaise, reduced fat
2 tbsp Chives, chopped
Pepper to taste
4 slices Sourdough bread
4 tsp (19g) Butter, light & unsalted or substitute
4 slices Cheddar cheese
1 Jalapeño pepper, sliced


  1. In a large pan on medium heat, add olive oil. Cook sliced onions for 5 minutes, until it starts to soften. Reduce heat to medium-low, stirring from time to time (10-15 min) until caramelized, dark and soft. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix tuna, mayonnaise, chives, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Butter each slice of sourdough liberally and grill. Once toasted, flip and add a slice of cheese to bread to melt. Repeat for each slice of bread.
  4. To assemble the sandwiches, place the tuna on a bottom slice of cheesy bread. Layer with onions, then jalapeño. Top with another cheesy toasted bread, cheese side down. Caution: Ooze patterns vary.
