Cheese Gift turned Tuna Sandwhich – Kerrygold Dubliner and Shamrock Cheddar

irish cheese sandwhich

I got an Irish Cheese gift set recently.  What a great excuse to devise some delicious sandwiches! I decided to go with a tuna sandwich. Sounds simple enough? It is simple to make but far from boring. Especially if you’re a cheese lover.

My husband and I were recently at Twin Forks Farm in Tennessee. (  They supply nutritious all natural foods and you can buy some of their bread on line.  Please check them out you won’t be disappointed.

My tuna sandwich starts with this wonderful artisan bread. Heritage Sunflower made with heirloom organic wheat and baked in a wood fire oven.

Traditionally grilled cheese is made with all the cheese on the inside. I prefer cheese on both sides of the bread. The outside cheese ends up with a crispy and crunchy texture that compliments the overall eating experience.

Also I would like to note when you buy bread that already has cheese on the outside it’s never enough. For this reason you don’t really taste it unless you crack off a small piece and eat it off the bread.  My method described below gives you a full outside sheet of cheese heaven!

Hope you enjoy, please comment if you attempt at home.
