When I was little, I remember celebrating Christmas Eve at my Aunt and Uncle’s house. The food was always pitch-in style, with everyone bringing something. One thing that showed up year after year was tuna melt sandwiches.
It seems like such a simple thing to have on Christmas Eve, but it fit in just fine with the hot sub sandwiches and other fun snack foods that were shared. And the tuna melts became part of Christmas Eve for me, just because they showed up for several years in a row.
Isn’t there a saying about how most of life is just showing up? I guess it’s just as true for tuna melts as for people.
This is not the same recipe that my mom made when I was little. I decided to use cheddar instead of Velveeta. And I threw in some Kraft Mayonnaise instead of the butter that mom used.
Mom always made them on hamburger buns. I found some slider buns at the store. They were the perfect size to serve with soup.
Right now, you can get some coupons to use on Kraft Mayonnaise and Kraft cheese. You can save up to $20 and the coupons are only redeemable at Target stores. Saving money makes these little tuna melts an even better deal!
Here’s what you’ll need to make them:
