1 can (12 ounce size) tuna, drained and shredded
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 small avocado, chopped
1 hard-boiled egg, mashed
black pepper, to taste
4 slices cheese
8 slices whole grain bread, toasted


In a small bowl, combine the tuna, mayonnaise, avocado, hard-boiled egg, and black pepper. Stir just until combined.

Toast the bread to desired doneness. Top half the slices of bread with cheese (I like American cheese, but Swiss is also tasty). Top cheese with tuna mixture, dividing evenly among the sandwiches. Top the sandwiches with the remaining slices of bread.

Slice sandwiches in half on the diagonal and serve immediately.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
If you're interested in a quick, light lunch that is pleasing to the palate of your spouse - This is it! My husband and I both loved this recipe, and it would even be good with crackers as an appetizer at a guest luncheon.

Not bad at all. A definite improvement on the standard tuna with mayo. I tried adding bacon bits as a garnish which was ok. It still needs more of a salty compliment (but I didn't use cheese). Be sure to use some crisp lettuce for texture. I'll be eating this again I am sure. Thanks for posting this recipe. The proportions were about right by my taste.
