    Tuna Melt Sandwiches

    These tuna melt sandwiches have been around for awhile.  I have been making them for almost 11 years (from the time I got married) now!!  I also enjoyed them as a kid because they were something my grandma made for us too!  So, they have been around this family for awhile.  I like them because it takes the plain and ordinary tuna sandwich and elevates to a new level.

    They are perfect for a quick lunch because you can make the tuna salad ahead of time then just use it as needed.  I even make these for a light dinner in the summer and pair it with a fresh salad.  My kids love them as much as I do and so does my husband so they are put on the menu often.  We also really like these Apple Tuna Salad Sandwiches to change things up.

    Tell me do you like egg in your tuna salad??  It’s the only way I really care to eat it.  I will eat it without but I definitely prefer it with!  I also really like to put dill pickle in my tuna salad.  I have left it out before and to me, it’s just missing something.  So, this is my standard tuna salad recipe that I make all the time.

    Then if I decide to make it a little different I make these tuna melt sandwiches.  I use cheddar cheese, but any cheese that you really like would work well.  I love topping these sandwiches with sliced tomatoes as well, but if you don’t have any that is ok.  I also like to top them with lettuce too.  And as I said before my family loves them!

    These Tuna Melt Sandwiches are a family favorite. It's a basic tuna salad recipe with boiled egg, dill pickle, then topped with cheese!!

    Well in other news, I am now 37 weeks pregnant!!  I had my doctor appointment yesterday and everything is looking healthy.  They baby is doing well and growing!  She is estimated to be somewhere between 6-6 1/2 pounds which is right on par with what my others were.  I am getting really anxious to finally meet her and probably a little impatient too, lol.  It always seems like the last couple of weeks are torture to us new moms who are waiting to meet their new little one!!
