I'm getting kinda sick of eating my tuna and mayo every day, anyone know anyways to change it up a bit?
Tuna and mayo with avocado and walnuts? That's my fave.
Hot tuna with melted cheddar and fried mushrooms?
Do u just mix the the avacado and walnuts in with the tuna?
And do you use any kind of batter on the mushrooms?
I just chop and mix the avocado in, yes. Lemon juice helps, too, or balsamic.
I just sauté the mushrooms in a little butter. Grate in some cheese, mix in the tuna. You could toss in some spinach too.
I've put tuna into an omelette with cheese, too.
Tuna and olive oil...that's the only way I ever eat it.
