Grilled Swiss and Tuna Sandwiches

It's been a very casual day so dinner should be equally relaxed.  The children and I enjoy quite a few foods which my husband does not; so put "casual meal" together with "no hubby" and it spells grilled Swiss and tuna sandwiches. Buttery and crisp on the outside, melted cheese and savory tuna on the inside, all you need is a salad or fresh fruit to make it a meal.
First, make the tuna salad by squeezing the water from one can of tuna, a large can will make 3 sandwiches, a small can 1-2 sandwiches.
Add 2-3 tablespoons minced onion, some chopped pickle ( we like dill ) or you can use pickle relish, a pinch celery powder and enough mayo to moisten all, usually a couple tablespoons. This is really a "to taste" thing.
Next, slice the cheese, and the bread (hence all the crumbs).
Butter one side of each slice of bread.
Place butter side down in a hot skillet.
This is what happens when you put the camera down and there are hungry kiddos hovering about.
Top the bread with a good amount of tuna salad, then the cheese. Cover with the next slice of bread-butter side out. Grill on both sides until golden.
Cut it open so you can see the gooey cheese and call the family, unless they are still hovering.
