Olive~Me & Co’s Tuna Melts with Parmesan Mayonnaise

Olive~Me & Co’s Tuna Melts with Parmesan Olive Oil Mayonnaise

Ingredients:

For the mayonnaise:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Olive~Me & Co.’s Parmesan Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons canola oil

For the tuna melts:

  • 2 5-ounce cans tuna, preferably wild caught
  • 3 tablespoons of above mayonnaise
  • 1 hard boiled egg, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon capers, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped Italian parsley
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 toasted baguette slices
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, to taste

Instructions:

  1. For the mayonnaise, whisk the egg yolk, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, cider vinegar, and a pinch of salt in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Using a hand held mixer on medium speed, mix the egg yolk mixture while slowly adding 1/4 cup of the Parmesan Olive Oil, drop by drop, until the mixture becomes light and thick (this can take a couple of minutes). After adding the initial 1/4 cup of olive oil, the mayonnaise should be stable and emulsified; add the remaining olive oil and canola oil in a slow, steady stream until it is thick and fluffy. Season with salt and pepper; to taste.
  3. For the tuna melts, heat the broiler. Drain the tuna and thoroughly pat dry. Combine tuna, mayonnaise, egg, capers, and parsley. Season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper; to taste. Divide tuna salad among the four bread slices. Top with shredded Parmesan and run under the broiler for 1 to 4 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden brown.

Recipe Notes: This recipe makes more mayonnaise than the tuna melts recipe calls for. Any extra can be stored in the refrigerator for 1 week. Use for making just about anything taste better!
