This has been a staple recipe at my house since i discovered it on RecipeZaar three years ago. I usually leave out the pickle relish. Instead, I add about a quarter tsp. of dijon mustanrd to the mayonnaise, and use green onions (whites and a little green part) in the mix. My DSs love it!

We liked this a lot, and it was super-quick to make. Thanks for posting! This made good leftovers, too, by the way.

These were quick, easy, and filling. Used homemade dough, which only contained SR flour, butter and milk. First bite of the pastry said it lacked salt, but a dunk in tomato sauce soon fixed that. I upped the celery for fibre and doubled the relish. I will make these again but using a few different combos.

Couldn't ask for a quicker, easier meal. Used a 9 oz can tuna, added a little more cheese, and just grinded up some pickles, since I didn't have any relish! YUM!

These were good - my children especially enjoyed them! I have made up something similar to this before so I know we would like it- if you don't feel like or have the time to form the individual turnovers, you can also make a casserole - pat the biscuit dough in the bottom of a baking dish, top with tuna mixture, sliced tomatoes and cheese and bake. I do like the individual turnovers - makes it fun to eat! :) Made and reviewed for Aus/NZ Swap #16.

Made for Freezer Tag 2008. I omitted the relish, and only used slightly more than 1/2 cup cheese. I added chopped cucumber and tomatoes instead. I really enjoyed these--warm or cold! They also froze well. I baked them and then wrapped two together in plastic wrap and put all in a large ziploc bag. You can thaw them in the refrigerator (overnight) or microwave. Then you can reheat them in the microwave. I also took them straight from the freezer for lunch, but I didn't take them out until 9am, so they were still a bit frozen. If you took them out earlier, I think they would be thawed in time for lunch.

I omitted the celery and added chopped jalopenos. They were great!

Oh yes, these are great! The pickle relish, something I would never have added on my own, was a fantastic addition. I didn't have biscuit dough, but I did have low-fat dinner roll dough that I needed to use up; it worked very well, although I pounded mine VERY flat in order to hold all the filling. Oh my...I just this very second realized that I never added any mayonnaise! I found it strange while mixing this up that it didn't call for it, but I didn't miss it after the fact so I guess it's better that I didn't add any! The cheese melts throughout the filling so it really didn't need any additional moisture (and I'm a mayo lover!). I didn't have onion but will add that next time. These remind me of "tuna cheesies" that my mom used to make us as kids, only the bun was already baked and you wrapped it in foil. Those buns were always a bit hard (but we loved them anyway, mom!), but these were nice and soft. I'm going to try a different version, maybe tuna with kalamata olives, feta and green onion? Thanks for sharing, pattikay! Great recipe!

Tasty. The canned biscuits I bought we pretty small so these turned out more like an appetizer. Will be better w/homemade biscuits.
