original tuna melts


long before tuna melts, in their many variations, became standard on every menu, my mother discovered this 1950's recipe. we grew up having these kid-friendly rolls on friday nights when, as catholics, we were forbidden meat. served in corn-on-the-cob dishes with a side of french fries and a salad, mom was out of the kitchen in under 45 minutes and we kids were in hog heaven!
