Make and share this Brauoterta – Icelandic Style Sandwich: Tuna & Egg recipe from Food.com.
- Mix together mayo, sour cream and garlic powder. Mash the eggs with a fork and drain the tuna well. Chop the onion very finely. Mix everything together and layer between the bread slices. Add lettuce, tomato as desired.
Made this smorgasbord style with real minced garlic and onion, along with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Not a fan of mayo so just made with sour cream. After tasting, just had to add a little dill as well. Dill makes everything sour cream so much better.
Have to admit, I wasn't sure how tuna and egg together would work. Made as directed, and used artisan bread, but had no lettuce! First couple of bites were, to be honest boring, but being from Maryland I thought, let's add some "Old Bay" seasoning. This definitely gave this sandwich character. Made for ZWT9 and "The Apron String Travelers"
Even with the garlic powder and onion I still found the final mix to be a bit lacking in that famous "something". I added some salt and fresh ground black pepper but that wasn't it. I added a tiny drizzle of Franks Red Hot sauce, stirred and got the Ahhhhh moment. It made a tasty sandwich on light rye bread. Also, I found that allowing it to chill for an hour and a half really helped out.
