How to make the best 100% Homemade Tuna Sandwich
Our 100% Homemade Tuna Sandwich was made from scratch… including the English muffin bread and mayo. You may boil the egg for 60 seconds if worried about salmonella.
We LOVE a good sandwich, whether with our amazing focaccia recipe or just our regular bread recipe. Bread always smells great out of the oven, doesn’t it? There’s just nothing better than growing up (like my son) and coming home to THAT every week.
Ingredients for homemade mayo
1 egg yolk (you can pasteurize the egg in shell first by boiling it for one minute, if you wish).
a squeeze of lemon juice (not too much, about 1 tsp at most)
1/2 tsp good Dijon mustard
1/2 cup of organic grapeseed oil (or safflower)
Whisk the first three ingredients in medium bowl and then,
SLOWLY add a couple drops of oil, while whisking briskly
continue to add a few drops at a time, never adding more than a VERY fine stream (or the sauce will break)
If the sauce breaks, whisk in another egg yolk and it should come together.
Flavor the mayo as you like.
