Hot Tuna and Cheddar Sandwiches

by Laura

I had some leftover hamburger buns sitting around that I needed to do something with.  Then, I found this recipe Hot Tuna and Cheddar Sandwiches on Its About Food, Family and Life. Jodi’s recipe was the perfect solution. I had everything I need in the house to make these and utilize those hamburger buns. Plus, my kids do love tuna.

Only 6 ingredients are needed. Several of them you would expect in a tuna sandwich. There is tuna, mayo, and celery. The added ingredients include some dried minced onion and shredded cheddar cheese.  Just those added ingredients makes it perfect.

If you want some extra tang you could always use Miracle Whip in place of the mayo. Now, I am a mayo girl and usually prefer mayo over Miracle Whip any day. However, when it comes to hot tuna sandwiches I do like Miracle Whip. So I am going to give it a try for sure!

  2. Combine all ingredients (except buns, of course) together and put into buns. Wrap buns in aluminum foil.

What a great idea – I haven’t had tuna for ages and I bet my kids would love these too. Great idea to use up the hamburger buns, too.

I love a good quick meal. Tuna Melts are always good.

How funny…I made these over the weekend. I made up my own recipe and they turned out great. This recipe looks great. We must have been on the same wave length of a tuna melt…or else we both saw Picky Palate’s Tuna Sadwich post…which got me in the mood for a good ol’tuna melt. Yours looks great!
