Tuna and Gruyere Panini

Recipe by LifeIsGood
READY IN: 30mins




  • See note below for directions on roasted the garlic. Do this before preparing the paninis.
  • Mix the mayo with the 1 Tablespoon of the reserved tuna oil, the lemon juice, Dijon mustard, celery, garlic, parsley, capers and celery seeds. Mix in the tuna. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Spoon the tuna mixture onto 4 slices of the bread, then top each with 1 oz of Gruyere and then top with another slice of bread.
  • Toast the sandwiches in a panini press until they are golden and the cheese is melted.
  • *Note* To roast the garlic, place the unpeeled cloves on a sheet of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil. Seal the foil and roast the cloves at 300 degrees F. If I'm halving the recipe and only roasting 2 cloves, I roast them for 30 minutes. If you roast the whole garlic bulb it would take about 1 hour. You can always peek at them and touch to see when they are completely tender. let the cloves cool, then squeeze them out of their skins and mash them.
