  1. Place the eggs into a saucepan in a single layer, and fill with water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Remove pan from heat, and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Pour out the hot water, then cool the eggs under cold running water in the sink. Peel and chop once cold.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Stir the chopped eggs together with the mayonnaise, tuna, relish, onion, olives, and cheese in a mixing bowl. Divide the tuna mixture onto the bun bottoms, then replace the bun tops. Wrap each sandwich individually in aluminum foil, and place onto a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese has melted and the tuna salad has heated through, 10 to 15 minutes.

The combination seems strange, however it works. These are great to make ahead (don't bake ahead) then freeze. When ready to eat, just defrost on the counter for an hour or so and pop into a slow oven (250 degree) for about 30 minutes. My MIL introduced these to me (she made hers with chopped chicken rather than tuna), however the tuna version is my favorite. Please don't tell my MIL I said that.

Just wanted to add that these should be heated at a low temp, 250, for about 30 to 45 minutes. Keep checking until cheese is melted.


These are very good. I used capers because I didn't have any olives. I also cooked @ 250 for 45 minutes. I used Kings Hawaiian Sandwich Buns. These are very large. I also put two of them in the freezer to have @ a later time.
