Tuna and Branston Pickle Melt

Tuna and Branston Pickle Melt created by Sharon123

Yes, I know that it sounds vile, but try it--it really is quite yummy. Everybody that I have made try it agrees with me! For all of you non-Brits out there..Branston Pickle is a combination of various vegetables in very small chunks pickled in a sweet brown sauce,usually served with salads, cold meats or in sandwiches. It's typically English, but is definitely available here in Australia, so may well be in the U.S. If you ever see it, I recommend you try it, it's good stuff!!

  • Toast the bread on one side. Turn the bread over and on the untoasted side spread the tuna. Place drops of the Branston on top of the tuna and cover with the cheese.
  • Place under a grill until the cheese has melted. Mind that you don't burn your mouth on the hot pickle.

    I couldn't get Branston pickles, so I used a combination of sweet relish and a mild giardiniera. We really loved the way the pickled veggies tasted with the tuna. I think this would also be a good cold sandwich, minus the cheese. The serving size is perfect. Thanks for posting!

    This made a quick and delicious snack last night when I got home from work. I used a combo of pickle relish and some pickled veges I had. Made for PRMR.

    The pickle chutney really adds a nice change to regular tuna melt. I used chopped sweet gherkins pickles mixed with chow chow (on hand) in lieu of the Branston, served it on rye bread, and enjoyed it for a quick dinner.
