IntroductionThis is just about the only way I make tuna salad sandwiches. I have been making them this way for nearly 30 years and have turned many friends on to them who frown at my recipe only to really love them once they try them. Hope you enjoy!

1 can of Albacore Tuna in Water
1 tbsp of mayo
4-8 0z. of Cream Cheese
Lea & Perrin's Worchestershire Sauce
Bagels or Honey Wheat Bread
You can soften the CC in the microwave at about 20 sec's. This will save you a sore wrist when stirring. You can also buy CC already soft but I find it is just cheaper to buy it in the bar. This is also a good recipe to use regular canned tuna as it makes it taste better.
You can also add veggies or anything else you like but I just prefer it plain.
I have also used this to make finger sandwiches for parties and have gotten rave reviews. I just never tell them whats in it! :)
Add around a tbsp of mayo or just enough to wet tuna, and mix until tuna is moistened.
Add 4-8 0z cream cheese ( more makes the tuna go further) depending on how much you prefer.
Then I add around 2 tbsp's of Lea& Perrin's Worchestershire sauce. I say Lea& Perrin's only because I have tried other brands and they just don't taste the same.
Mix all together and let set in fridge to firm or use as is.
Serve on toasted bagels, toast or whatever you prefer. I used to serve on a nice crisp lettuce leaf with a slice of cheese to keep it low carb.
Serving Size: Makes about 4 sandwiches
Number of Servings: 4

Had the ingredients for this, so instead of going out to buy more stuff to eat, I decided to try this. Amazing. I used a no name Worchestershire and it was still good, will have to try the Lea& Perrin next time! - 1/31/20

Thank you for trying my recipe and I'm so glad you liked it. I tricked friends into trying it because when they hear "creamcheese" it would turn them off. So a party I was having, I made little finger sandwiches and cut the crest off. EVERYONE ate them, ALL of them. It worked and they loved them!
