These were lunch yesterday at my daughter's new place. I made everything and took it along with me. We thoroughly enjoyed them with carrot & celery sticks. I did not use bread, we cut buns in half and left them open-faced. Then we sprinkled cheddar cheese and put under the broiler for a few minutes. Delicious! I plan on trying them your way, too. Thanks for a good lunch or snack recipe.

I was in the mood for something good and comforting. This was the answer. Like a tuna salad grilled cheese sandwich. My husband and I loved this. We liked the flavor of the oregano and basil with the tuna. Thanks Nurse Di. ;)

These were really good, quick to make up and the kids really liked them. I made them the way the recipe called for, Will be making again.

This was a nice change from our usual tuna sandwiches. DS (age 5) LOVED it - and so did I. The remainder goes in DH's lunch for tomorrow! We'll hang onto this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

This was the special for "soup & sandwich night" in our household last night....and was a nice change from plain old tuna sandwiches. I used sliced, green onions & a grated cheddar / monterey jack combo (sorry Mr Kraft) ......broiled open faced on buns. I made regular sandwiches for the DH's packed lunch with the leftovers.

This was a delicious and comforting lunch for a chilly Fall day. I only used a couple tablespoons of mayo, and added a good squirt of lemon only because I'm not a big mayo fan. Loved the addition of the herbs and grilling the sandwich made it seem more special. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Loved the flavor, different from our usual bland tuna melts. Might use buns or english muffins next time and heat in the oven instead. Thanks Nurse Di for another tasty recipe!

This recipe was ok. We normally make tuna melts with just tuna and mayo on toast with cheese on top. The added flavors were ok but we couldn't really taste the tuna with all the other "stuff" in there. I might make this again but scale back the ingredients or just double the tuna.
