I gave Mom's original recipe a boost by adding onion and green pepper to these delightfully different tuna sandwiches. With hard-cooked eggs and cheese, the filling tastes fresh, not fishy, and the rolls stay nice and crispy. -Nancy Selig, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

"I cut this in half & used celery in place of the green pepper as I didn't have green pepper on hand. I added some creole seasoning which helped boost the flavor, but I still thought it could use something more. Next time I will try adding some mustard."

"I like to add a pinch of cayenne and a bit of smoked paprika for flavor. Sometimes, if I'm feeling like letting my family splurge, I'll top if off with good ol' melty American cheese (unhealthy? yes, but so tasty!)."

"If you like tuna, this could be considered comfort food. I did add some extra seasonings, such as cajun seasoning for some "kick". The filling is soft and some of it will likely come out of the sides as you're eating it--no problem--have a spoon or fork ready to scoop it up!"
