Tuna Swiss Melt

“My mom discovered this easy recipe 30 years ago when she was a newlywed,” says Susan Burkett of Monroeville, Pennsylvania. “Now that my sister and I share a house, it’s a staple for us, too. We like them with baked beans and salad.”

    Great taste with swiss cheese. Never had swiss cheese with tuna before. I did use less cheese though, watching the calories.

    Teriffic quick meal and very filling. We enjoyed and will experiment with other cheeses. Great for a busy night.

    Swiss cheese was too strong. Great flavor just too over powering. Next time I'll use less or try another cheese.

    This is a great dish. I used hamburger buns in place of English muffins. I didn't have Swiss cheese so I used a shredded Mexican blend. My son said it rates 5 stars.
