  1. I really like the idea of the French Toast sandwich. I didn't change a thing. Next time though, I will probably change the filling a little. A little salt and pepper and maybe some jalapeno peppers. Add a little more spice! But overall, it is perfect the way it is now! Thanks for the new idea of making tuna sandwiches!
  2. This was a great recipe. My husband comes home for lunch every day, so I like to try new sandwich ideas. I don't do sweet pickle relish, as I like to keep the tuna salad savory, I seasoned with celery salt and lemon pepper, and I dipped it in parmesan before grilling in butter. Also good with a slice of cheese or a spread of cream cheese on the inside.
  3. I made these sandwiches to go with a hot bowl of soup. Ummmm, so wonderful. A little messy dipping the sandwiches in the egg mixture but the taste was worth it. Good comfort food. Thanks Nurse Di.
  4. I added a slice of pepper jack cheese. Tasty.
  5. We had some left over soup and I wanted just a little bit more to fill our tums. What a great idea this is, I used my own rhubarb chutney for the pickle and followed the rest of the recipe to a T. Very tasty, hard to believe you're eating tuna actually. Thanks for posting. =)
