Homemade Tuna Sandwich

Homemade Tuna Sandwich

Once you do this recipe you will think you purchased¬†a tuna sandwich from a restaurant or sub store. It is so easy to do and tastes so good, you will never buy tuna elsewhere ever again. Tuna can sometimes be quite expensive in grocery stores so I often wait for a sale to happen and go buck by purchasing like 10 cans at one time. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy than you can always go to Costco and buy the tuna sold in bulk.

Tuna Sandwich Variations

There is a lot of flexibility with homemade tuna as long as you keep some of the ingredients in the recipe. Mayo and the flaked tuna are the main components of the dish. Feel free to add any other flavor to the homemade tuna. Examples I can suggest could be chipotle peppers, sundried tomatoes, diced up pickles, garlic, muffuletta olive salad or even diced up chorizo. Great recipes are created by trial and error so let your creative juices flow and experiment with some new ideas when it comes to a homemade tuna sandwich.

  1. Open the cans of tuna into a bowl and mash with a fork. Add carrots, celery, red onion, Dijon mustard, mayo, chili flakes, salt and pepper. Mix until incorporated.
  2. Place bacon slices in oven at 190C/375F until crispy
  3. Once bacon is crispy take it out and place the potato bread in the oven to toast up for a couple of minutes. Add the shredded cheese to both sides of the bread while toasting at halfway point.
  4. Take out the bread and start assembling your sandwich. I put the tuna on the bottom, bacon strips and then tomato slices. Top if off with other piece of bread and enjoy.
