Tuna Bumstead (Sandwich)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by steve in FL

This is the 'famous' toasted tuna sandwich that was served in my Catholic school cafeteria. Who knows why they called them tuna bumsteads, but they did.. Use Miracle Whip for the real-deal, but I know a lot of folks don't like it so use mayo if you're, ahem, 'one of them'.. lol..

In my non-sectarian home, we add pickel relish and a SMALL amount of finely chopped green onions. The onions go far, so just a touch!
