    I'm usually not a big fan of tuna, but this recipe was easy and delish! The only flaw with this recipe is that it didn't produce enough tuna mixture to fill 4 muffins (8 halves). I ended up only doing 3 muffins (6 halves). I also used a cheddar-jack (cheddar and monterey jack) cheese instead of just cheddar. I love the celery concept because I'm just not a big fan of raw onions! The tomato is also a nice touch. Highly recommend for a quick snack or easy lunch!  -  26 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Loved this tuna melt! I used hamburger buns and I toasted them first. I used colby-jack cheese. They turned out perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe.  -  26 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were wonderful! I thought the tuna mixture seemed too dry with only 2 Tbl of mayo, so I added more. But after it baked under the broiler, the tuna mixture became really moist, almost too moist - I think because the tomato adds moisture. So next time, I'll stick to the recipe to a tee! It was sooooo good!!!  -  30 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
