"'When our children were young, I often fixed these warm crunchy sandwiches,' recalls Carole Anhalt of Manitowac, Wisconsin. 'They go well with chips and a salad for a quick lunch.' They're priced right at 40 cents each."

Not bad for a quick lunch! This is a little different from the way I'm used to doing tuna melts as the cheese is mixed into the tuna salad. The tuna salad itself wasn't bad, but I'd cut back on...

This sandwich is nothing special. It has little flavor aside from the onion. I'd recommend halving the onion and doubling the cheese. It's a pretty average tuna melt.

These were easy to make and my Husband really liked them. He used to have these as a kiid. I felt that one cane of Tuna was not enough so I added one additional can. Thank you for sharing.
