It was raining heavily last Friday, so I was not able to go out for breakfast. I waited for the rain to stop but it did not look like it was going to abate anytime soon. I was not in the mood for instant noodles and I did not feel like frying the leftover rice from the past few days but since there was some bread in the house, I decided to make myself some tuna and cheese toast.
I just mixed some canned tuna with finely chopped garlic and shallots (We’d run out of Bombay onions and my missus had not bought some to replenish the supply!) and bits of cheddar cheese (That was all we had in the fridge!)…and I spread it out over some slices of bread…
…before I sprinkled some more cheddar cheese on top…
…and put it into the oven to bake until the cheese had melted…
It turned out pretty good…and I had four slices altogether!
In fact, I was so full that I even skipped lunch that day and did not eat anything after that until I went out for tea at around 3.30 p.m. but that would be in the next post.
I was thinking that if I cut a slice into quarters, that would be quite ideal for finger foods at cocktail parties or buffet dinners. Perhaps I could add some tomatoes for added colour and flavour or use ham or bacon instead of tuna…or I can have all three so as to have a selection for people to choose from! I think I’ll just KIV that for the next time I’ll be having a party at my house….. Anybody wants to come? LOL!!!

Oh, mini pizza… I make these quite often, but I prefer my bread to be crunchier, and I use sliced sausages/ham… leftovers from bfast and spread some tomato sauce on it before baking it with cheese. This one should be good on it’s own, but you might wanna consider bits of chopped tomatoes on it…
Serve these at parties? Why the hell did I never think of that? Could have saved me alot of $$$. ISH!
ps: Cikgu, you might wanna sandwich it up, then bake it… then it’ll be crunchy on the outside, extra gooey and saucy on the inside. That way will keep the cheese and the tuna really moist instead of a bit dry. Oh, YUM!
Ya…I like it crunchier too….so toasted the bread a bit bofore use. LOL!!! Not like the “toast” I had the other day at one place – next post I think. Ya…I thought so too – adding tomatoes would enhance the taste and add colour to it. Will try other variations when free – see what I can serve at parties next time. LOL!!! I know what you’ll be bringing to the next bloggers’ meet now…not your cock…I mean coke chicken, I’m sure. ROTFL!!! 😀
You think I can escape kah? LOL… sure kena bully into cooking some fried chicken, or coke chicken… LOL…
Gee! Your cooking must be really good…for them to insist on those. Sigh! No chance to sample… Sobs!!! 😦
wei Cleff 1st round fried chic no salt. last round the fried chic too much salt la. next round must be perfect la..3rd time lucky mah :p
Let us all get down on my knees and pray!!!….Muahahahahahaha!!!! 😀
wohoo!! this is what we have to learn during secondary ERT subject! mwahaha! yummy!
You did? Gee! I can go and become an ERT teacher now… Hahahahaha!!! 😀
yeah adding some ham and bacon would be nice! Non-halal party? haha
My parties all non-halal ones lah! If got Malay friends, will get a caterer…use all their plates and cutlery – can’t use our own, have touched non-halal stuff already. Or just go and eat outside…
good– have everything in the fridge – will do that for lunch today.
Something different for a change. Everyday eat rice, also bosan… Hehehehehe! 😉
wow..just look at the cheese toppings on top!! no wonder u didnt feel hungry.. 4 pieces of bread is not much but with toppings like that, it is a different story.. hahahaa…
That was what I thought! Only four slices…yet so full. I must be losing it or what – used to eat a lot more… LOL!!! 😉
Man, we really make me wanted to get a few bites… usually my wife will not toast the cheese, just put it on,, now i know what to do already, thank to you Cikgu
I prefer melted cheese to just cheese slices, dunno why… Seems nicer. 🙂
yes, me too!! give me melted cheese anytime.. but not those kraft pieces..
Ah! We are alike in many ways. LOL!!! 😉
these days been having a lot of bread with jam.
Eyew…jam! But I don’t mind nice homemade kaya jam…or peanut butter. 🙂
strawberyy jam from last cameron highland trip . Home made kaya ah…errr…that one have to ask my MIL . SHe knows how to make. I heard got a lot of pantang one when making kaya.
Dunno… Dunno how to make but here, we can buy nice homemade ones – pandan or biasa. I like pandan. Don’t like jam – strawberry or whatever.
me too like pandan kaya better than the normal kaya. Jam i also will hentam one. Begger cant be chooser :p
Yalah…if nothing else in the fridge, I will also take. My missus will do most of the shopping and marketing, so I just eat whatever she buys…and most of the time, have to finish off what she claims she buys because she “likes it so much”. She’ll eat once and then dump in the fridge liao…and if I don’t finish, it will sit in there forever. Tsk! Tsk! 😦
hey bro…u really got the same taste as me …. i did the same way for my bread …garlic in melted cheese and tuna in melted cheese…..ovened it in microwave sumore…love it so much….hehehe….
nice to go with kopi!
Not a fan of microwave. Me, old school…so I always use the conventional convectional oven. LOL!!! 😀
I oso dun like microwave. 😦 They dehydrate the food. I dun like. prefer oven, or the frying pans.
Hah!!! You’re in my gang then… 2 against 1! LOL!!!
I would love to join the party if I’m in Sibu…
Most welcome. Will definitely have one end of year Nov-Dec when my daughter will be home for the holidays… 😉
mini pizza, it look good! I always want to try out this, but lazy, till now have not do it.
You can spread some pasta tomotoes puree on the bread, tuna can add some lemon juice and mayo on it and spread it on the bread and add some cheese…tada..this is the way i am going to do it, but yet to experience it. hahhaha
Not a fan of mayo… I used a bit of cream cheese but not enough, I think. The other two slices, I added more olive oil margarine…and they turned out much better or at least the topping stuck to the bread more nicely. Tastewise, more or less the same. So you and try yours and post on it! See how that turns out. LOL!!! 😉
Easy to prepare and yet filling to the tummy huh? You had 4 slices altogether?? With those thick cheese toppings, it’s not surprising that it could last you till tea time..:P
Now, you’re the 2nd one to tell me that. I was thinking…4 slices only, not much leh? Why so full? Hahahahaha!!! 😀
Look at the amount of cheese. No wonder you are so full till have to skip lunch. The max I can eat is only 2 slices.
And that probably explains why you’re half my size. LOL!!! 😀
haha good job uncle, I love anything with cheese! vry fast become full.
Hey! Long life, you! I just came over from your blog after posting a comment. Die lor you!!! You’re dead meat!!! Hell knows not the fury of a woman scorned…and there’s more than one! ROTFLMAO!!!
i will come for the party hehhehehehehe makan sampai kenyang LOL!
Provided there’s no boozing party at Jackfruit Village. Otherwise, tak sabar want to cabut liao!!! LOL!!! 😀
I can’t imagine the taste of tuna with garlic.. hmm…
We add finely-chopped garlic to steamed fish to tone down the fishy smell…and restaurants even fry them till golden brown first for that added fragrance. I think I didn’t add enough though as I couldn’t taste the garlic nor the shallots – except when I bit on the slices. I think next time, I will use more…and pound them to pulp and blend in with the tuna…. 😉
It’s been raining a lot lately, and in July too. Feels more like December. At least, something good came out of the rain, the STP special. I agree with Shirleen. Tuna with garlic. What next? Chocolate with shallots?
Re, reply to Shirleen. Well, you’ll never know. After all, there are people adding a blob of butter to hot coffee…or raw egg to a hot glass of diluted condensed milk- Foochow specialty!
Heavy breakfast with lots of cheese….no wonder you skip lunch…..very filling!
Never realised that cheese could be so filling… 😉
bread is always an easy fix for foods and i love making my own spreads and fillings too
Ah! It’s good to have company. LOL!!! They make very nice ones at a cafe/restaurant here…
Oh…i have some leftover bread n a can of tuna. But no cheese wor…ok..ok…wana try out this yummy recipe over the weekend.
LOL!!! Hope you’ll like it. I thought it was nice… Wouldn’t mind making that again sometime.
You should try adding some chili padis to spice it up a lil.
Ya…will experiment with more things next time. Those were about all the stuff I could dig out from the fridge then…
