Baked Tuna Cheese Sandwiches


Baked Tuna Cheese Sandwiches

I found this recipe about a year ago from one of my Mom’s friends growing up. This has quickly become one of our family’s favorite dinners. My kids are not tuna people, at all. I was surprised how much they enjoyed it the first time we ate it. I think it is because it isn’t just straight tuna, so it isn’t overwhelming. If you really aren’t a Tuna person, you can substitute with shredded chicken.

Baked Tuna Cheese Sandwiches

(We double this)

6 Hamburger Buns

1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1 Large Can Tuna, drained

3 Hard Boiled Eggs, peeled and chopped

1/3-1/2 Cup Mayonnaise

Worcestershire Sauce

Onion Salt (or chopped onions)

Salt and Pepper

Relish (optional)

Chopped Celery (optional)

Combine the drained tuna, chopped hard boiled eggs, shredded cheese, mayo (I start with 1/3c. and increase if mixture is too dry), a splash of Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and onion salt to taste. I don’t add the celery or relish in the kid’s mixture. I add it in for Kevin after I am done making the rest of the sandwiches. Spread on buns and top with a little extra cheese, if desired. Cover pan with foil and bake at 250 degrees for 30 minutes. You can wrap the sandwiches individually, but they turn out the same covered and cooked together. Serve with fresh fruit or vegetables.

 

 

This is what the mixture looks like. Add an extra can of tuna if you need it to go further.

 

Spoon on the buns to make it even. I like to add more tuna mixture to mine, less to the ones the kids eat.

When it comes out of the oven the bun will be toasted and the cheese will be melted and warm. They are super delicious! I hope you enjoy them.
