    sometimes i add a little crushed pineapple too, (a few spoonfuls) if i have any on hand. blends beautifully with the bread. just decrease the mayo by a few spoonfuls. if using, omit fresh lemon juice.

How to Make King's Hawaiian Tuna Melt Supreme


  1. Place all of tuna salad ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside. (Can be made up ahead for flavors to blend.) Slice round loaf of King's Hawaiian Bread to desired thickness. (Enough filling to make 2 large sandwiches or 4 small.)
  2. Layer as follows:
    1. bread
    2. cheese
    3. tomato
    4. tuna salad
    5. cheese
    6. bread

    Melted cheese holds everything else in. ;)
  3. Butter both sides of bread generously and grill (fry) until golden brown. Serve with sweet potato fries or chips and pickle slices.
  4. (Use any left-over sliced, round sweet Hawaiian bread to make the best French Toast you've ever had the next morning!)
