A really quick and tasty dinner for those after school days is Tuna Boats.  Ask my kids about it and they will smirk and turn their noses up to it.  In the "lean" days especially during Bible School and having a brood of seven kids, I really had to watch my budget.   So----Tuna Boats were made really only once a month.  But if you were to hear them,  "We had them ALL the time."


1 pkg. hot dog buns ( 8)
2 cans white tuna, drained (which I prefer rather than the regular tuna)
1/2 chopped onion, fine
1/4 cup chopped celery, fine
3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
4 oz. sharp cheddar cheese (more if you like)

In a medium sized bowl, place drained tuna and flake it till all the big chunks are gone.  All the onions, celery, may and shredded cheddar until mixed well.

Fill each of the hot dog buns with the mixture.  Place each one in aluminum foil and close up on top and sides.   Put the open side facing up. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.      Bake for about 20 minutes.  Check one to be sure the cheese is melted.  If it isn't, then leave them in for another 10 minutes.   Take out and keep out til ready to serve.  

It's really VERY good.   I think you'll like it!!
