Bunsteads, a.k.a. Hot Tuna Melts

Terrie Hoelscher


An old recipe, from an old friend, Jayne ... these are very filling and cheesy-gooey. Great with a side-salad for a Saturday night, sit-in-front-of-the-TV-type meal!

1/4 lb
velveeta cheese, cut into tiny cubes
hard boiled eggs, chopped
5 1/2 oz
can of tuna
2 Tbsp
chopped bell pepper
2 Tbsp
chopped green olives
2 Tbsp
chopped bread and butter pickle
2 Tbsp
finely diced onion
1/2 c
hot dog buns, white or wheat


1Preheat oven to 250° while mixing the filling.
2Combine all ingreds [except hot dog buns!] in a bowl. Mix lightly.
3Split buns, and fill them with the tuna mixture.
4If you buy your hot dog buns in a box, return the filled buns to the box in which they came. OR, wrap each filled bun in aluminum foil. Wrap kind of loosely, so the filling doesn't stick to the foil. You can wrap them all in one huge piece of foil, if that's the way you prefer to do it.
5Place boxed or foil-wrapped buns in the oven at 250°. Cook for about 30 minutes, until filling is hot, and the cheese is bubbly and melted. Serve right away, while hot.
