I really like the idea of the French Toast sandwich. I didn't change a thing. Next time though, I will probably change the filling a little. A little salt and pepper and maybe some jalapeno peppers. Add a little more spice! But overall, it is perfect the way it is now! Thanks for the new idea of making tuna sandwiches!

This was a great recipe. My husband comes home for lunch every day, so I like to try new sandwich ideas. I don't do sweet pickle relish, as I like to keep the tuna salad savory, I seasoned with celery salt and lemon pepper, and I dipped it in parmesan before grilling in butter. Also good with a slice of cheese or a spread of cream cheese on the inside.

I made these sandwiches to go with a hot bowl of soup. Ummmm, so wonderful. A little messy dipping the sandwiches in the egg mixture but the taste was worth it. Good comfort food. Thanks Nurse Di.
