One of my favorite things is mayo.  Seriously.  I could and can eat it by the spoonful.  Because I love mayo, I’m always making foods that require it as an ingredient.  Mr. Bejelly did not like tuna fish and no matter how much I tried to convince he would like it, it wasn’t he saw Little tear through it like he was in a berry patch (my son loves berries) that he took his first bite.  Anyhow, he was making every kind face because I put eggs in my tuna.  You would think I had broke some sacred tuna fish law the way he was going on about it.

I soldiered on because I have eaten it this way my entire life (and after he took a bite and kept eating I figured it was all good).    This recipe is super easy.  I love that it’s fast and filling.  For the bread, I cheated and bought a box of Chebe Focaccia mix

    • Aw, come on now Robin 🙂 It is so true that the quality of tuna affects the taste. I buy an expensive can of tuna because I can’t stand the taste of some of the lesser brands.

  1. This is how I make mine, except I use a little less mayo and a little more mustard. 🙂 I’ve always made it (so did my Mom) with hard boiled eggs in it.

  2. I was just looking at your recipes and saw this yummy one. I won’t need to copy it as this is the way I make my tuna as well! I do add chopped up sweet pickles (sugar-free) occasionally. I either eat it as is, wrapped in lettuce or piled on top of shredded lettuce.
