Tuna Salad Sliders

What for supper?  Do you have a habit of opening cupboard doors and the refrigerator and looking (usually more than once) to help you decide what looks good?  Well I saw two cans of Albacore white tuna in my cupboard and it sounded good, but it was so cold out that it made me remember making tuna salad sandwiches on a bun with melted cheese back in the 60's and have not had them since. This is my take on the 60's version that I've tweaked and turned into sliders since I had Hawaiian rolls.  

2 can of albacore white tuna
1 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons of mayo
1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
1 chopped celery stalk
1/2 of package of Slider buns (Hawaiian buns) or you could use French bread and cut it up into small pieces
Thinly sliced Roma tomatoes
Sliced American cheese

Mash up your tuna in a bowl.  Mix the soy sauce, mayo, chopped celery and red pepper flakes with the tuna. Marinate at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes.

Preheat your oven broiler.  Cut your Hawaiian rolls in half and toast them.  Do not separate them.  Put them all under the broiler opened up all at once to toast both sides.  Watch them so they do not burn.   Pile your tuna salad on the buns and place slices of American cheese on top.  Put them under the broiler again to melt the cheese and heat the tuna salad.  Watch it closely because it only takes a minute or so.  Salt your tomato with a pinch of Kosher salt and top with your tomatoes. Put the other top of your toasted buns on top.  Cut up the buns into individual sliders and serve hot.   

Serve it up with a cups of hot tomato soup.

Variation - You can add a little chopped onion or green or red pepper if you like. Make it the way you make your tuna salad.  The secret is to serve it warm with melted cheese.  

This will help warm up your day.  Make it a great day, be happy and may God bless you and yours.
