Crustless Tuna Egg Sandwiches

SORRY for the delay! I had to do some homework before posting this… :p Thanks for reading!

I recently got a Wonder Sandwich Sealer N Decruster from Safeway.  Since I had been craving a tuna sandwich, I decided to put the decruster to use! I liked using the decruster rather than just cutting off the crust because it sealed the sides so that the insides didn’t come out. It was a lot easier to eat the sandwich since the sides had been sealed and the tuna/egg wasn’t squeezing out. It’s a great snack or meal and very simple to make! Give it a try!

For this recipe, I used cucumber instead of celery because I don’t like the taste of celery. The cucumber still gaves the sandwich a delicious crunch without the strong flavor. If you like celery, you can substitute the cucumber.

You can just make this without the crust cutter and make it into a regular sandwich.

*I cut up the leftover crust into strips to eat with the DEEEEELICIOUS hummus that I got from the USC weekly farmer’s market. If you want to try it, it’s called “Kitchen Sink”.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 can of tuna in water
  • 2 hardboiled eggs
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped cucumber (without seeds)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (I used Kewpie but you can use any kind)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 4-6 slices bread (I made 5 sandwiches without the crust on them
  • If you’re not making them crustless, I suggest putting some lettuce and tomato slices into the sandwiches!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Hardboil 2 eggs (boil uncovered with cold water and when it starts to boil, cover the lid, take it off the heat, and let it sit for 12 minutes)
  2. Empty out the can of tuna, drain, and break up tuna into small pieces
  3. Add mayonnaise
  4. Chop cucumber and onion and mix with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Let sit

  10. Chop egg whites into smaller pieces (not too small because they break into smaller pieces while being mixed anyways) and add to tuna along with a dash of pepper
  11. Put plenty of mixture onto bread
  12. Add lettuce and tomato if desired
  13. ENJOY!! 🙂

With Decruster (continued from 9.) Check out the end of the post to see how the decruster works!

  1. Once your sandwich is made, put the decruster on top of the sandwich and press down. Do not press the inside piece in too hard because the sandwich will break. I then flipped the sandwich over and used the inner piece to press down lightly again to make it even.
  2. Only put the mixture into the middle
