Cheesy Tuna Melts

I have to admit something to you ... Growing up, the thought of eating tuna literally made me gag. I can't tell you how many times my parents made me sit at the table (for what seemed like hours), trying to get me to eat tuna sandwiches or tuna noodle casserole. I would always be threatened with "it would be my breakfast" ..... yikes! I'm not sure when or how, but I have since overcome my tuna aversion. 

Thankfully, I have no problem getting my family to eat these sandwiches! They're nice to make when you need something quick and easy ... and they're easy on the budget!

Cheesy Tuna Melts
Yield: 8 servings

3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped onion
2 can tuna (6 oz. each) tuna, drained and flaked
1-1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 tsp. seasoned salt, optional
8 hamburger buns, split

Preheat oven to 350° F. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Spread tuna mixture on bottom buns; replace tops. Wrap in foil. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

I hope you enjoy!

  1. Yum! I love tuna! This looks so good! Thanks for sharing at Church Supper. Love "seeing" new faces. Have a blessed week & come back soon ~EMM

  2. I made a tuna salad today and we had a boring tuna sandwich. Tomorrow - a tuna melt! It looks SO GOOD!

  3. Ha, your story reminded me of a time when I was a kid. I begged my mom to make a grilled cheese sandwich for me. Then when I finally had it, I took a bite and decided I didn't want it. My mom told me I had to eat it before I could go back outside to play. She actually wrapped it up and saved it for me and I finally ate it a little while later. Lesson learned - don't beg for something!

    Your tuna melt looks awesome. I love a good tuna melt! Thanks for sharing on Marvelous Mondays.

    My mom did the same thing--eat it now or eat it later, but one way or another, you're going to eat it and not waste it!
