    In my world a can of tuna pulls a close first place with a can of Spam-not happening. However, if you like it there's lot's you can make with a can of tuna that goes beyond a sandwich.

    White Bean & Tuna Salad. You can serve this with crackers or pita chips-toss it with some baby greens and stuff pita pockets-call it lunch for 4.

    I've had beans on toast, so why not Creamed Tuna on Toast? Honestly, I can think of lot's of reasons why not, but it might be something you would like, and it feeds 4! icon_lol.gif

    If you want to change up the everyday sandwich, try Italian Tuna Panini.

    With 2 cans of tuna you can make Curried Tuna, Carrot & Hommus Couscous for something really different!

    Tuna Melts or Tuna Muffins might float your tuna boat too!

    It's your can, what do you make with it?



    Please note: If you are a pregnant woman, a woman of childbearing age who may become pregnant, a nursing mother, or a child, the FDA and EPA advise against eating fish that might contain high levels of mercury.

    Since canned light tuna is processed from smaller varieties of tuna, it will have less mercury than either canned albacore ("white") tuna or tuna steaks/fillets.

    Accordingly, the FDA and EPA advise limiting intake of both albacore tuna and tuna steaks/fillets to up to 6 ounces (one average meal) of tuna steak eaten per week.

    Growing up I only ate tuna once. We won it in a food hamper as part of a fundraising draw at the elementary school. My parents didn't want it so we serving it to the people helping us build our house. I took a quick taste and I didn't think it tasted all that bad. I didn't eat it again until 12 years ago. Even when I was getting it from the food bank. I wouldn't eat it mainly because my ex put it down. It did help when we were low on cat food.

    But now I keep some in the cupboard. We only make sandwiches with it. Cold or melts.

    I like tuna salad sandwiches, but I add capers and fresh herbs to the mix. I have found that Costco's brand of tuna is really superior. It's really firmly packed with chunks of meat, not that sloppy mess you get in the supermarket brands. Worth the cost.

    I also like tuna patties - mother made these, cooked over sauteed onions and with some ketchup added to the pan.

    I never really liked the casseroles much.

    Apparently I am not that adventurous. I use it for sandwiches (has to be on toasted bread though) and I make a tuna casserole about once every two years!

    I thought it was quite funny that Dibs started this thread about a food she doesn't even like! That's what I call "taking one for the team". icon_lol.gif

    I'll have to confess to loving a good tuna noodle casserole and tuna melt sammies. Outside of that, I'm not a canned tuna lover.

    I've was advised a few weeks ago that Don likes Tuna sandwiches. There hasn't been a can of Tuna in the house in the 10 years he has been here because who knew? I bought a can a couple of days after he mentioned it but every time I ask if he wants a Tuna sandwich he says "maybe not today" icon_rolleyes.gif

    I won't eat it and the dogs don't like it.

    We are all fans of Ahi Tuna. The dogs taste testing that was a complete accident.

    Had to laugh K9, sounds like Simon with fish cakes, after many years he said that he liked them and insisted on picking frozen ones in the supermarket....

    Hmm, I was not that impressed, so duly served them up a few days later.... it was hard to keep a straight face when half way through the meal he looked at me and said - some memories are best left as memories!!! same with your DH and Tuna sandwiches icon_smile.gif

    fish cakes

    Tuna sauce for over noodles

    Nicoise Salad

    Tuna loaf - like meatloaf and, can be hot or cold

    Molded tuna salad / pate

    BC I think had a wonderful entrée we loved! You mixed tuna w/several items, like egg, etc.. then laid it down on a rectangular Bisquick dough, rolled up, put together in a circle shape, then slashed here and there and baked. I still have the recipe!
