Lemon-Tarragon Tuna Melt with Provolone

Lemon-Tarragon Tuna Melt with Provolone | Black Girl Chef's Whites

 

Once upon a time a chef entered a contest for the best grilled cheese sandwich. It was only a grilled cheese after all, how hard could it be to come up with the winning recipe?

That is how I began my post about the Brie, Gorgonzola and Pork Loin Grilled Cheese recipe I developed for a contest. Well, here is the second recipe I entered into that contest . . . and the second one that did not make the cut.

So, it occurs to me that it may indeed be fairly hard to come up with a winning recipe for a grilled cheese sandwich.  Could someone pass me that humble pie please?

This tuna melt starts with extremely flavorful tuna with lemon zest and fresh tarragon, with gooey provolone cheese and creamy avocado.

And to really make it really special, I threw on some potato chips for crunch.
