I thought I would post this recipe and dedicate it to the mom who was more of a mom to me and that is my mother-in-law! She is no longer here and in her memory I posted the recipe that made me love the simplicity of her cooking! At first, I was like "YOU CAN'T DO THAT WITH TUNA AND EGG!" She reassured me that the taste would be divine! This recipe is wonderful for when we go to summer picnic potlucks and it makes for an easy night of cooking when it is hot outside! As my children have grown, they still to this very day and miss their Grandmother's simple but very delicious meals! ENJOY!!!

Oh yum! This is a combination of two popular deli sandwiches. A creamy egg salad is combined with classic tuna salad and sandwiched between toasty bread. It may sound strange, but boy was it tasty. We ate every last bit.

How To Make tuna egg salad

Test Kitchen Tips
Seasoning is to taste in this recipe, so we added 1/2 tsp of salt and paprika. Also, we upped the mayonnaise because we like our tuna salad a little creamier. Adjust the measurement to suit your taste preference.
  • Hard-boiling the eggs.
    Boil eggs until they are hard-boiled. *Rule of thumb- once water is boiling, 9 minutes of a continuous boil produces a perfect hard-boiled egg.
  • Preparing tuna with mayo, mustard, relish, and seasoning.
    While the eggs are boiling prepare the tuna with the mayo, mustard, relish, and seasoning in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Eggs cut into slices.
    Slice the egg vertical.
  • Mixing hard-boiled eggs into the tuna salad.
    Mix it into the tuna to complete the salad.
  • Toasting four slices of bread.
    Toast the bread.
  • Buttering toasted bread.
    Then butter the toast before putting the salad on.
  • Putting tuna egg salad on the buttered toast.
    Then put the salad on. You got some really good Tuna Egg Salad right from Mama Elnora's recipe box!
