Tuna Melt Pie

tuna melt pie

My mom has been making this recipe for years. Its almost as easy and quick as putting together a tuna sandwich. It's kid friendly, delicious and filling. We serve it for lunch with a fresh salad. For a nice presentation bake them in little ramekins or mini pie dishes. Enjoy!
