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..

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine the tuna, dressing, eggs, salt and pepper.
  3. Spread the mixture evenly between hamburger rolls.

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!

I made this for lunch and it was really good. I get tired of eating cold sandwiches for lunch, so this one hit the spot. Thanks for posting.
