I made a few small adjustments because we're on a tight budget this week and I wanted to use what I had on hand. I used shredded sharp cheddar instead of american cheese and because I didn't have green olives on hand I doubled the pickles. We don't care for sweet pickles I used garlic dills instead. To fill it out a bit I threw in some chopped celery. Good quick dinner (when combined with some seasoned steak fries dug out of the deep freeze) at the last minute. Read More

I used sour cream instead of mayonnaise and dill pickles instead of sweet relish. It was okay but a little bland. Read More

These were really good! I was looking for something different to do w/ leftover hot dog buns (besides the obvious) and stumbled upon this recipe. I did omit the hard boiled eggs and added an extra can of tuna. I didn't measure everything exactly just did it to taste also adding a little salt and pepper. The flavor was great. I really enjoyed this take on a traditional tuna sandwich/melt. I will definately be making these again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I went a little off recipe with this one. I don't like onions or green peppers so I didn't add those. I like olives but didn't have any so I left those out too. But this is a great recipe for customizing to your personal taste! I think you could make the tuna how you like it then make the coneys. In fact I think this is so great I am passing this to a friend who has a Boy Scout's troop. She is always looking for recipes and I think this would be a perfect camping recipe! Great for kids! Thanks so much for the post! Read More

My mom always made these for us and now I make them for my kids. I make exactly as the recipe says and they are great. For parties I cut the buns in half so they're smaller and then after I take them out of the oven I put them in the slow cooker on warm to keep them heated. Read More

Not too bad. I left out the olives and green pepper. I used dill pickle relish and shredded cheese. Made a decent light supper with some chips and a fruit salad. Read More

i actually had everything to make these. i was surprised at how the bun crisped up nicely. i thought these were really good but hubs said the filling was mushy. he wont eat tuna melts and this was my way of sneaking one past him- hey at least he ate it! i was going to serve this w/ coleslaw but it was too cold so i made cabbage au gratin from this site(tastes a lot like mac and cheese) instead.
