What a great recipe!! I had company over for lunch and it went over very well! Thank you! My Niece said "Wow I feel like I am eating a cheeseburger without the guilt" So from now on I am making my tuna this way all the time.

The recipe for this tuna melt has been around since 1969. My aunt was serving us this type of tuna melt then. If she had know then with 13 children in the house that it would be so popluar she would have entered it herself as a recipe. It was just a good meal for us,

A nice, tasty treat for lunch! I did not use low-fat mayo or cheese, but full strength. LOL Also, I add finely chopped green onions (with the green tops too) Thanks for posting, Dancer.

Thanks Dancer! This was really good. I used sourdough rye bread and extra aged white cheddar on top. I added about a tablespoon of pickle juice to add some zip. Yum! I'm going to post a photo too.

This is a very nice lunch. I wasn't sure how much ketchup to use so I just used one good squirt for a half recipe. I think next time I will add a wee bit of vinegar or the juice from the pickles. I didn't have low fat cheese so I used regular old cheddar but less of it. I will make this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

This tastes great! I used a 420 gram can of tuna, about 1/3 of an onion, 2-3 heaped TBS of mayo, around 4-5 heaped TBS of ketchup, two gherkins and regular extra sharp cheddar. I left the celery out as I didn't have any. The quantities I used made around six sandwiches, which I toasted in a little oil in a pan on the stove top. Some I made with rye bread, the others white bread with oats, and both turned out really well. So tasty, and very easy!

I love tuna salad with lots of red onion and this one fits the bill. The cheddar cheese on top really adds to the flavor. Made this for a quick lunch on Sunday and enjoyed it very much.

This melt sandwich was excellent! The difference in mine was that I used a square-shaped bagel bread and swiss cheese. I had this with chicken noodle soup. What a great comfort sandwich!
