Stuffed Tuna Salad



Tuna Salad is my go to lunch on a weekly basis.  My father has eaten this for years & growing up I wasn't a big fan of tuna.  But when I came up with this recipe, I instantly feel in love.  I am a hot tuna melt-y cheese kinda girl.  Place these under a broiler for a quick lunch or snack anytime.  Enjoy!!!  


Ingredients: 
1 (12oz) can solid white tuna in water (drained)
6 tablespoons of cream cheese 
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 tablespoons diced Red Onion 
1 tablespoon chives (dried works just fine)
1 tsp dill (dried works just fine)
Salt & Pepper to taste 


Love: 
Mix together & serve hot or cold 


NOTE: The longer it sits the better it is, so if you can make it a day ahead go for it.  


How to assemble the sandwich 
Ingredients:

1 Hoagie roll, cut in half & center hulled out
Filled up with creamy tuna Salad
