DIRECTIONS

  • In a saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar and bay leaf; season with pepper and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the mixture over the onion, cover and let stand for 20 minutes. Drain.
  • Rub the toasted bread with the garlic. Season the tuna with salt, pepper and the thyme. In a skillet, heat the EVOO, 2 turns of the pan, over medium-high heat.
  • Add the tuna and cook until just about opaque, about 5 minutes. Flake the tuna into chunky pieces.
  • Preheat the broiler. Spread a light layer of mustard on each baguette slice, then top with tuna, onions, cornichons and cheese. Place on a baking sheet and broil until the cheese is melted.
