    tanya_g's Note:

    The simplest part about preparing for any dinner party! Whenever I take it to a barbecue or potluck it disappears in a flash. Plus it keeps well in the fridge and is totally addictive. Can be served on crackers, as a spread, or in a small bowl as a side-dish. (Cooking time is for boiling eggs.)

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Using a fork, squash the egg thoroughly until uniform in texture and colour.
    2. 2
      Add sandwich tuna.
    3. 3
      If using tuna in water, add olive oil; if using tuna in oil, leave it out.
    4. 4
      It's possible to use chunk tuna instead, you just have to put more effort into squashing it well.
    5. 5
      Add the chopped onion, mix and squash a bit with the fork-- I find this releases the juice from the onion and adds flavour without giving it that'onion-y' taste.
    6. 6
      Add mayonnaise and mix well.
    7. 7
      Serve in a small bowl and garnish with parsley as desired.
    8. 8
      Also works well on crackers or as a spread.
    9. 9
      Keeps in the refrigerator for at least a week-- I haven't tried longer than this because it always gets eaten!

      I love, love, love this!! I'm always losing my copy of the recipe, but thankfully it's easy enough to find :)

      I like to make it by roughly chopping eggs etc then giving it a blitz in the food processor until it's a delicious, creamy spread. I also add parsley sometimes too. Fantastic with vegie sticks!

      This recipe is yummy. I used 6 tbsps. of mayonnaise and tuna chunks in oil. I'm gonna try this with celery next time.
