"Great taste. I plan on filling a broiler pan and putting them out for a brunch. Easy to do after the eggs are out of the oven."

"I will try this recipe again, except I will add some pickle relish and a little mayo. It was very dry and lacked flavor. I think the pickle relish of just the juice will help the flavor"

"These were great and I don't usually like tuna. I doubled the recipe and ended up with about 8 half sandwiches."
