Don't know why my Mom called these K-sandwiches, but my sisters and I still use this recipe to this day, and it's always been a favorite in our households...I think you'll be most pleasantly suprised!

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.

Nice twist on a tuna melt. Easy cleanup too. Very tasty and the cheese is melted perfectly.

Made these for dinner tonight and they were great! A little messy but, a fun summer sandwich!

I subbed mozzarella for the velveeta and broiled the toasted sandwiches. Not exactly what you had in mind but close enough to authoritatively state that this is a superior tuna salad, Stacky5LRC. Thank you.
