    VLizzle's Note:

    Rob Evans is the chef at Hugo's, located in Portland, Maine. http://www.hugos.net/ This is his version of a not straight-from-the-can tuna sandwich. An Italian tuna, Gruyère cheese, charred-rosemary mayonnaise tuna sandwich. I have also posted the recipe for the charred-rosemary mayonnaise which makes this sandwich out of this world. Tuna Melts are my favorite sandwich. I made this today for lunch and I will never use another recipe again!

      This was a quick and easy, yet tasty dinner for a busy night. The flavor was excellent, even though I did not make the Rosemary Mayonnaise and used lite mayo in its place. Next time I will go all out and make the mayo as well. Tuna with Gruyere is a lovely combo. Thanks for posting!

      Don't think I've ever made a tuna melt for myself, although I've ordered them at restaurants before! This one has a great taste, especially using the recipe's gruyere cheese along with the slices of winter wheat bread that I had on hand! I even went all out & made Vera's Rob Evan's Charred Rosemary Mayonnaise to use here, & it, too, was great! Thanks for posting them!

      I'd love to make this because it sounds delicious, but I can't find the recipe for the charred rosemary mayonnaise... am I overlooking it somewhere?
