Tuna Bunwich

Before you say, EW!!! Or YUCK, I don’t like Tuna! I want you to hear me out, it’s not my favorite either.  However, once in a GREAT while, I get hungry for a nice hot, cheesy Tuna Bunwich. My friends from High School used to LOVE when my mom made us these for after school snack.  Flaky tuna, crunchy celery and melty cheese. Just delicious!

  This recipe makes a LOT.  Feel free to half it for your first go around.  We kept the goo separate from the buns on the extra sandwiches, so I could make them up fresh all week for an easy hot lunch!

Tuna Bunwich txt 1


  • 3 cans Tuna Packed In Water, Drained (7 Oz Each)
  • 9 ounces, weight Velveeta Cheese, Cut Into Small Cubes
  • 1 cup Finely Diced Celery
  • 1 whole Small Onion, Minced
  • ½ cups Miracle Whip
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 package Of Whole Wheat Rolls, 16 Count Package

Mix all ingredients (except the buns) together in a large bowl. Lay your buns out on a work surface with the tops removed. Divide filling between the buns placing an equal sized amount on the bottom buns (roughly 1/4 cup per bun). Put the top bun on. Wrap individually in foil and bake at 350 F for 15 to 20 minutes until hot and the cheese has a chance to melt.

These can be baked all at once, or wrapped up individually and put in the fridge to heat and eat anytime!

Easy and delish!

  1. Oh you tease! How could anyone resist a sandwich with that melty drip of cheese running out the sides? I love Velveeta and know we would love this. Trying it soon. Glad you shared. I have several cans of tuna in the pantry that have been there for months!
