I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Tuna Cristo
...in your mind.

Tuna Cristo

Makes 2 sandwiches - This is the less sophisticated cousin of the classic "Monte Cristo", but easily as good.


  • 1 can tuna
  • 2 tablespoons red pepper, diced fine
  • 2 tablespoons jicama, diced fine
  • 4 slices bread
  • 2 slices cheese, the type is up to you, but I kinda like muenster or Havarti
  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • butter


  1. Combine tuna, red pepper, jicama, mayo and salt & pepper - mix well
  2. Spread mixture evenly on 2 of the bread slices and add cheese to each then top with second slice of bread
  3. Beat eggs with milk in a shallow bowl & dip both sides of sandwiches in mixture
  4. Melt butter in non-stick pan and cook sandwiches until golden on both sides and cheese is melted
  5. Slice in half and serve warm
