A sandwich is one of the easiest things to make for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as a snack. There are various types of sandwiches: meat, fish, or even vegetarian. Tuna sandwiches are one of the most popular. They're not only quick and tasty, but they also have a lot of health benefits, especially for kids, as they contain over 300 milligrams (0.011 ounces) of omega-3 fatty acids per serving.

Canned tuna first appeared at the beginning of the 20th century and quickly became popular. Tuna can be canned in water, brine, various oils, and/or sauces. According to Wikipedia, 52% of canned tuna in the United States is used for sandwiches.

In this article, I'd like to share three variants on a tuna sandwich recipe. Try to make them all and choose what you like the best.

1. Warm Tuna Sandwich Recipe


  • French baguette
  • Tuna
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Salad leaves
  • Cheese
  • Mayonnaise


  1. Cut onion. Mince garlic and mix it with mayonnaise.
  2. Cut French baguette into estimated portions (future sandwiches).
  3. Cut each sandwich portion lengthwise, 1/3 from the top, so that it has kind of a lid.
  4. Take the "lids" off and work with the bottom part. Spread mayonnaise with garlic on the sandwich, add the salad leaves, onion, and tuna, and spread mayonnaise on top of that once again. Then put cheese on top and cover with the top slice of bread.
  5. Put each sandwich into the microwave for 2 minutes. Enjoy!
