Made these the other day and we ate them out in the garden by the pond… all plates came back clean as a whistle. Oh, and there was wine… There will always be wine. These are tuna sandwiches, but what makes them great are a few of the ingredients, the provolone cheese, bacon, and the toasted onion rolls. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    Put the top half on top, slice, and serve with your favorite side. I am serving it with baked spicy potato croquettes w/ sour cream. Enjoy.
