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!

  1. I have always loved tuna melt. Never had a matzo one, or one so rich as this.

  2. if in Israel, what can you substitute for whipped cream cheese and for sour cream?
