A nice warm sandwich. I used less butter/margerine and substituted hot dog buns. Also any cheese (diced cheddar for example) seems to work
This wasn't bad, just nothing spectacular enough for a four or five star rating.
I've had these since childhood. My mom called these "Bunsteads". I now make them for my family. The recipe is the same except I put the filiing in hot dog buns with no butter. An excellent way to use canned tuna.
I was planning on making a tuna sandwich so I thought I would check to see if I was missing out on another way to prepare it by using this most helpful website!! And yes good sandwich, tasty, I tend to burn my buns!! so the tin foil prevented this from happening!!
My family ate these up like crazy! It was surprising, and totally delicious.
Everyone except our 8 year old enjoyed this--then again she isn't the biggest fan of tuna fish. My husband thought this was incredible!
