I'm usually not a big fan of tuna but this recipe was easy and delish! The only flaw with this recipe is that it didn't produce enough tuna mixture to fill 4 muffins (8 halves). I ended up only doing 3 muffins (6 halves). I also used a cheddar-jack (cheddar and monterey jack) cheese instead of just cheddar. I love the celery concept because I'm just not a big fan of raw onions! The tomato is also a nice touch. Highly recommend for a quick snack or easy lunch! Read More

This was just ok. At 3 minutes, my cheese had burnt and I had to peel it off, so be sure to check on it often! Read More

Loved this tuna melt! I used hamburger buns and I toasted them first. I used colby-jack cheese. They turned out perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Read More

These were wonderful! I thought the tuna mixture seemed too dry with only 2 Tbl of mayo so I added more. But after it baked under the broiler the tuna mixture became really moist almost too moist - I think because the tomato adds moisture. So next time I'll stick to the recipe to a tee! It was sooooo good!!! Read More

Perfect for lunch! I haven't had a tuna melt in a long time. I used whole grain english muffins and added added some black pepper finely chopped red onion a bit of garlic powder and a little more mayo to the tuna salad. Read More

My family really liked these. I'm not a big tuna fan but I was surprised how well these turned out with such little effort. I did add some sweet relish and replaced the salt with Mrs. Dash Original Blend. I also used Monterey Jack. Read More

These little sandwiches are really yummy. I added just a teeny tiny smidge of pepper onion powder and garlic powder and used sliced provolone cheese instead of cheddar. They are really fast and easy and the family loved them! Read More

Really good and easy. Sadly I had no celery so I just used a sprinkle of celery salt. I also had to use regular (whole-wheat) bread because I don't have English muffins. I used light mayo and a little less than called for. It seems dry at first but once it's out of the oven it's moist and perfect. I used a can of boneless pink salmon which tasted very similar to tuna. Good lunch with some fruit! Read More

These are so good and quick and easy! I added 3 tablespoons of onion. The only way my picky teenager will eat these is to use plain tuna for his. These are great for those nights when you don't want to cook! Read More
