Ingredients

  • 2 cans (6 ounces each) tuna, drained and flaked
  • 1 hard-cooked egg, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip
  • 1 teaspoon sweet pickle relish
  • 4 submarine sandwich or hoagie buns
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 8 wooden skewers
  • Fish-shaped crackers

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the tuna, egg, celery and onion. Stir in the Miracle Whip and pickle relish; set aside. Make a 2-in. wide V-shaped cut in the center of each bun to within an inch of the bottom. Remove cut portion and save for another use. Line each bun with a lettuce leaf and fill with tuna mixture.
  2. Cut cheese slices in half diagonally. For sails, carefully insert a wooden skewer into the top center of each cheese triangle. Bend cheese slightly; push skewer through bottom center of cheese. Insert two skewers into each sandwich. Place on a serving plate. Sprinkle fish crackers around boats. Yield: 4 servings.
