    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.

    My husband and I both loved this recipe. It has already become a favorite quick weekday meal.

    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.
