Tuna Sandwich Recipe

Yes. Tuna Sandwiches. The greatest tuna sandwich recipe in the history of tuna sandwich recipes! And it’s super simple.

My dad made these my entire childhood and it’s the only way I like to eat tuna sandwiches. If I decide to order the tuna at a sandwich shop, I always have them add mustard, ranch, pickles, olives, cheddar cheese and lettuce. It never tastes quite right, so I usually buy a bag of Cheetos, too, and put them inside the sandwich! Weird, I know.

Now I’m all grown up, married with a 9 month old… even the Hubby loves this recipe! I’ve never met someone who didn’t enjoy these. My brother told me he once made this recipe for a potluck and called it a dip. Brought a bowl of the tuna mixture and a bag of Lays potato chips. Everyone loved it! And now you can, too.

It starts with these ingredients:

Tuna 1

And turns into this deliciousness:

Tuna 6

Step one: Chop up two large dill pickles, your sliced olives (note: you could just buy chopped olives, but I didn’t have them on hand!) and the eggs:

Tuna 2

Step two: Add your cans of drained tuna and the condiments… Miracle Whip, mustard, ranch and thousand island:

Tuna 3

Step six: Mix it all together!

Tuna 4

Now you’re ready to throw it on some bread and chow down! Personally, I prefer mine to have a slice of cheddar cheese and some lettuce on it, too. My husband likes his with pepper jack cheese. Growing up, my dad either used shredded cheddar cheese and mixed it into the tuna concoction or we would throw a slice of american cheese on it. It’s good with tomato, too, if that’s your thing.

I made it for dinner tonight and although it’s good cold, I felt like mixing things up a bit. I put tuna on white bread, topped it with the cheese and broiled it in the oven just until the cheese melted. Pulled it out, put lettuce on it and added the second slice of bread. Voila! Dinner was served. And we used the remaining tuna as a dip for out potato chips. Yummy!

So, the next time you’re thinking “I could really go for a tuna sandwich,” go ahead and give these a try. Let me know what you think! If you come up with some delish alterations, leave a comment. I’d love to try your version, too!
