Maggie's Topless Tuna Melt
We prefer the softer bread over the English muffin that some like. If English muffins or even bagels are your thing then by all means use that!

2While the mayonnaise mixture is chilling lightly toast the cut side of your hamburger or potato bun.
3Open, drain and flake the tuna. Fold into the mayonnaise mixture.

Serving size is 2 halves of yumminess !
As with most of my recipes, if there is something in this that you don't care for (other than the tuna) just leave it out.
Regarding the cheeses ... I like to mix them up and use a little of each over the top of the sandwich but feel free to use whichever you like best.
7Serve with a nice crunchy dill pickle and a steaming bowl of soup or chowder.
