Toasty Hot Tuna Sandwiches

My Mom used to make these all the time. They are quick and delicious! With football season coming, these are great food for that Sunday afternoon game. Every time I make them it takes me back to when I helped my Mom make these years ago. They are high on my list of "comfort foods!"
