Warning, these sammies are huge and are messy to eat. Good to share for two.



Mix first five ingredients in a bowl. Top two slices of bread with the cheese slices; spread the tuna mix equally on top of the cheese and then top with the other two slices of bread.

Butter the outside of the sandwiches like you normally would for a plain grilled cheese sandwich.

Cook, cheese side down, in a large skillet over medium to medium high heat until cheese is melted and bread is browned, turn and press gently with a spatula and cook until that side is browned.

Drain tuna and flake into a bowl. Add the onion, pickle relish, celery, and mayonnaise. Blend together. Divide the mixture on the toasted side of the bread and place on a buttered baking sheet. Cover each with a slice of cheese and sprinkle with paprika. Bake in a hot oven, 450 degree F, until cheese melts. This will take about 8-10 minutes. Serve hot.

In a large bowl, mix in all ingredients but the slice of cheese and, of the course, the bread. Taste it for enough flavor.


You could spice it up with red pepper flakes (optional). Heat up either your waffle iron or electric skillet.
