¼ cup shredded processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®)

2 (3 ounce) cans tuna, drained

3 eggs

6 hamburger buns

2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish

2 tablespoons minced onion

7 tablespoons mayonnaise

3 tablespoons chopped pimiento-stuffed olives


Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 15 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water, cool under cold running water. Peel and chop eggs.

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Wrap each sandwich individually in aluminum foil and place onto a baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese has melted and the tuna salad has heated through, 10 to 15 minutes.
