  • 2 5 oz. cans albacore tuna in water shredded with a fork
  • 2 hard boiled eggs chopped
  • 1 cup dill pickle chopped
  • 1 cup onion chopped
  • 1/3 cup green salad olives
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 5 oz. block American cheese cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
  • 7 hamburger buns


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Prepare aluminum foil by tearing off 12" to 15" pieces, enough to wrap the sandwiches. 
  • Fill the buns with the tuna fish mixture and wrap in foil. (I used a #8 ice cream scoop).
  • Place the sandwiches on a baking sheet and place in oven for 25 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  • Serve the sandwiches wrapped in foil.


Let leftover sandwiches cool, then place in the refrigerator and eat them cold the next day.
