Cheesy Tuna Bombs are a great snack or small meal! If you enjoy tuna melts, you will love this recipe! Fast and easy, just the way we like them!
I have always been a fan of the tuna melt and these are a fabulous substitute when I get a tuna melt craving! Whenever the mood strikes you! Grab a tube or two of refrigerated biscuits and a can or two of tuna and you are ready to go! You just have to decide how many you want to make!
Every time I make these Cheesy Tuna Bombs I try and put as much cheese as possible into each one! Ken, my husband on the other hand, prefers less cheese and always places less cheese than I do! Even still, they always taste so yummy! We have even used canned chicken or crab and still the results are phenomenal!
