    I was looking for an easy meal to make with tuna. The doctor said eat more fish. This was fast and great. I mixed in shredded cheese instead of putting it on top. I couldn't believe how good it turned out. Thanks for sharing.

    These were easy. I made them for lunch for DS#4 and myself. They are a "different" version of grilled tuna sandwiches - which we love by the way. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.

    Oooh these were so good! I made my tuna salad as usual, consisting of mayo, relish, onions, gray poupon, garlic, etc. and filled the little 'bread muffin cup thingies' with the mixture. I had some pre-sliced colby/mont jack cheese on hand, which I used one fourth of on each muffin tuna pocket thing. These are simple, but the tuna being warm with the mayo and the garlic is just so good, and the bread ties it in. The cheese to me, however, is the most integral part of the recipe. As Varsha pointed out - the recipe is easy to serve and present, but also shady and quite unclear. I give it a five star because the food is just so good!

    quaint tasty way of making tuna melts. DH loved the crusty cup that encased the melts. i also used celery and topped it with cheddar. delicious but the reason for 4* is the lack of clear directions, but i loved the idea of the bread crust in this - it made for a good dainty presentation as well.
