Have you ever had a recipe that you LOVE? One that you assumed was something everyone ate? And then you learned that it wasn’t? That is totally me and tuna salad with eggs.
Growing up we had tuna salad with saltines often. I loved it. Imagine my surprise the first time I ordered a tuna salad sandwich elsewhere. Tuna? Check! Bread? Check! Mayo? Check!
Where’s the eggs?
After asking a few people, I realized that most people don’t add eggs to their tuna salad. Over the years, I’ve made it without more often than not because I can’t be bothered to boil eggs for it. I much prefer the taste with eggs but I must admit…I’m lazy.
I always miss them, though. For this recipe, I used the Eggs2Go by Burnbrae from the deli section. You can also make hardboiled eggs in the instant pot! Taking the extra time and effort is totally worth it for the taste. I’m craving a tuna salad sandwich now!
Want to make it even fancier? Toast your bread, layer on this tuna salad recipe and then cover it with thinly sliced cheddar cheese. I also add a sliced tomato sometimes too. Yum! It’s the perfect lunch.
I must say that hard boiled eggs are my favourite way to eat eggs. They are also a great addition to salads like my favorite 7 Layer Salad.
Now…back to the tuna salad with eggs!
