Open-faced sandwiches are all the rage now and rightly so! It’s fun to top a hearty whole grain bread with whatever suits your taste buds at the time. Today, in partnership with Sabra Spreads™, a new line of sandwich spreads, and Brownberry® Bread, I am crafting my “Open-Faced Artistry” sandwich. As you may have seen in my last blog post, the polls are open for America’s Better Sandwich™ contest! Please check out the 15 finalists and help me judge these tasty creations!

I am making a tuna melt (as we are big tuna fans in my house). Let’s start with white albacore tuna. Did you know you should aim to get 2 – 6 ounce servings of fish per week? If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it’s a bit less – 8 ounces per week. Jam-packed with omega-3 fats, which are healthy for your heart and brain, tuna offers high quality protein, too, to fuel your muscles well throughout the day. You can eat this sandwich any time of day - morning, noon or night, it makes a tasty, balanced meal. Add a side car salad - and you’re all set!
I am lightening up this tuna melt with Garlic Herb Sabra Spreads. With 75% less fat than regular mayonnaise and a good dose of plant-based goodness, it only has 35 calories per tablespoon. Plus, you just squeeze and go – it’s simple and convenient to use.
