I am a person who loves to try different kinds of sandwiches, burgers and anything that looks so yummy. But sometimes, due to the non-availability of ingredients mentioned in some sandwich/burgers recipes, I don’t have a choice but to just keep them in my files – wait for a lucky day, maybe.
Aside from my favorite – Egg Sandwich, Tuna Sandwich is also a favorite of mine which only needs a very few ingredients. I always have tuna in can in the pantry – whether it’s tuna in oil, tuna in water or Spanish-style tuna. I love them because they are ready-to-eat when you are in a hurry or just too lazy to cook. So I had two cans of tuna in water and I was thinking whether to do Tuna Spaghetti or Tuna spread. Well, I decided to do the latter.
Tuna Spread Recipe
- 2 cans tuna in water, about 370 grams*
- 5 tbsp mayonnaise
- 3 tbsp commercialized sandwich spread (the one with pickles)**
- 1 tbsp chopped onion
- 1 ½ tsp sugar
Mix all ingredients together and chill for a hour or so. Spread on your favorite bread. I like mine on a toasted white bread.
What I love about making your own sandwich spread is that – you just have to put it in your bread with lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers and boom!… you have a good meal. For me, this sandwich makes a very good snack, lunch or dinner. I am even bringing some when I go out; just in case I get hungry – I have a sandwich to dig in. 🙂 I also love this with lettuce and lots and lots of cucumbers! 😀
* Remove the water first before mixing the tuna with the rest of the ingredients.
** If you cannot find commercialized sandwich spread, replace it with pickles. But due to the varieties of brands we have, you might want to do a taste test before chilling the Tuna Spread.
