Not Your Typical Tuna Sandwich

My hubby was doing the grocery shopping and saw cucumbers on sale and it reminded him of one his favorite sandwiches from Pret a Manger. He found the rest of the ingredients and made this scrumptious sandwich.

This sandwich reminded me how much I love alfalfa and I definitely need to look into growing my own. I heard it's pretty easy. If you've ever done it, I'd love it if you'd share your experience with me!

Ingredients:
- 1 can of tuna
- 1 baguette
- Mayo
- 1 hard boiled egg
- Cucumber
- Alfalfa sprouts

Directions:
- Open and drain the tuna and mix it with mayo until it reaches your desired consistency. For me, it usually takes about 2 huge spoonfuls.
- Slice the bread in half and spread the tuna on the bottom half.
- Add a handful of sprouts on top of the tuna.
- Place a row of sliced cucumbers on top of the alfalfa sprouts.
- Place a row of sliced eggs on top of the cucumbers.
- Put the top half of the baguette on top.
- Enjoy.

Great idea for spicing up a boring tuna sandwich. I also love sprouts on a sandwich YUM! I also usually add a hard boiled egg to my tuna and mix it in with the mayo. It is really good, you should try it.

My coworker recently became a sprout farmer in her small apartment haha. I just picked up a wide mouth mason jar to start my own farm. She says it's wicked easy!! And they taste AMAZING!!

Hey, you just need to get alfalfa seeds and sprout them. I talk about sprouting at my site pantryeats.blogspot.com.
That sandwich look delish.

I love a good tuna sandwich. I tend to put all kinds of things in my tuna though; mayo, chili sauce, scallions, celery salt, a little black pepper, and diced bread-and-butter pickles. It's got a little of everything: sweet, salty, a tiny bit of spice. Mmm. Tuna melts...you made me want one for breakfast!

LOVE!
I always add eggs to my tuna, and sometimes even white rice.

I also like to add tomatoes and olives. You are making me hungry :)
