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

"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."
