These Cheesy Tuna Melts remind me of when I was growing up. We had them at least once a month, and my mom had a special recipe. Here it is.

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!
- 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.
