Creamy Tuna & Egg Salad

"I was hungry for egg salad but wanted it to have a bit more omphf and some more protein to last in my gut, so I added tuna. I have both mayo and miracle whip in the recipe just in case some don't like the tang of miracle whip, so it tones it down somewhat."

directions

  • Put eggs into a pot with cold water and bring to a boil.
  • Once the water is boiling, cover the pan and remove from the burner. Set your timer for ten minutes.
  • Cut up onion and drain tuna while the eggs cook.
  • Once the eggs have done their 10 minute soak, rinse with COLD water to stop the cooking process.
  • Continue to rinse the eggs until you can hold them to remove the shell.
  • Remove the shell, rinse away any shell particles and cut into chunks (or small pieces if you like a finer texture).
  • Mix the egg, tuna, onion in a bowl with a fork.
  • Add mayo, Miracle Whip, ground mustard, paprika, salt and pepper and mix until blended.
  • Enjoy on bread or toast; or top a plate of mixed greens with tomatoes. You could also stuff tomatoes with the salad. A perfect summer meal when you don't want to turn on the oven!

    I added my mustard, sweet relish, celery, sharp cheddar cheese, pickles, tomato slice and you can also add sea salt and fresh ground black pepper :)

    Yum! This recipe has been a huge hit with my family. I wanted to use up the hard-cooked eggs from Easter, and this looked like a great way to do it. I don't buy Miracle Whip though, so I subbed a little bit of sour cream for it, and I added some leftover cooked & crumbled bacon, otherwise made as directed. DH works the late shift, so I whipped this recipe up just before he left, around noon, and he raved over it! He came home at almost midnight, when he usually won't eat even if he is hungry, and ran straight to the fridge to see if there were leftovers of this recipe! There were and he made and ate another sandwich! Thanks for sharing your creation, BreLeigh, the whole family really enjoyed it! Made & enjoyed for the Spring 2012 Pick-A-Chef event.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

While life throws its twists and turns I still find time to cook, bake, and try new recipes. I love the joy that cooking brings to those who eat what I prepare. Thank you to those who have tried a recipe, or two, of mine. Half the fun of cooking/baking is trying new things! I appreciate your comments and critiques as well.
