A New Kind of Tuna Sandwich

Our dinner last night? Open-faced grilled tuna sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, grape tomatoes, and a smoothie. 

Here's the thing: not all of my kids like tuna. 

But, when I cook it like this, even my pickiest eater has some. 


  • Take a drained can of tuna (or 3 like I have to) and mix with Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip or whatever you usually mix tuna with for a normal tuna sandwich. 
  • Lay out a slice (or 2) of bread for every person in your family onto a cookie sheet. 
  • Spread tuna mixture on each piece of bread. 
  • Grate cheddar cheese on to the tuna, and then sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning. 
  • Bake at 400° F until the cheese is melted
  • Turn on the upper broil to crisp edges (not burn). Usually for no more than 5 minutes.
Easy, pretty cheap, and tasty. You can serve it with whatever you want. 

Have you had this before? What do you think?

    1. If the kids eat, and it has some good healthy stuff, then go for it, right? :)
