This is my mom's recipe for tuna fish. I can't eat it any other way! This has gotta be one of my favorite sandwiches! Anyone who has tried this recipe likes it.
- 1 (6 ounce) can canned tuna
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (I use fat-free)
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons sweet relish
- 1 medium diced onion
- 3 hard-boiled eggs (chopped up)
- salt and pepper
- Drain tuna and put in bowl.
- Add rest of ingredients & mix well.
- Do a taste test and adjust amount of ingredients.
- Serve on warm toasted bread.
Great recipe for doctoring up tuna. Used it in a pinch right before my daughter went to school, so I didn't have any eggs. I used less than 3 T mayo and it was great. I only used 1/2 an onion. I was so confident this recipe would make my husband a tuna sandwich lover that I did the open-your- mouth-and-close-your-eyes routine. Okay he didn't appreciate it... and he really doesn't like tuna fish after all. : )
I had to put a little spin on this recipe based on what I had available. So, I did not have any sweet relish in the house, instead I used some olives and diced those up. Did not have onions either, so I substituted that with a bit of onion powder. Still turned out delicious and wanted to share my thanks and suggestions for an alternative take on this recipe. Good eats!
Yum! Simple and good. I really liked the egg in this too. Thanks ChelleBelle1102 for a nice lunch. Made for Cookbook Tag.
