“The simplest part about preparing for any dinner party! Whenever I take it to a barbecue or potluck it disappears in a flash. Plus it keeps well in the fridge and is totally addictive. Can be served on crackers, as a spread, or in a small bowl as a side-dish. (Cooking time is for boiling eggs.)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a fork, squash the egg thoroughly until uniform in texture and colour.
  2. Add sandwich tuna.
  3. If using tuna in water, add olive oil; if using tuna in oil, leave it out.
  4. It's possible to use chunk tuna instead, you just have to put more effort into squashing it well.
  5. Add the chopped onion, mix and squash a bit with the fork-- I find this releases the juice from the onion and adds flavour without giving it that'onion-y' taste.
  6. Add mayonnaise and mix well.
  7. Serve in a small bowl and garnish with parsley as desired.
  8. Also works well on crackers or as a spread.
  9. Keeps in the refrigerator for at least a week-- I haven't tried longer than this because it always gets eaten!
