Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients

You will need:

1 can of tuna
1 small container (for mixing)
Mayonnaise (or tarter sauce)
Two slices of bread
BBQ sauce
Other condiments that you like

Step 2: Open and Drain the Tuna

Don't cut yourself and make sure to get as much of the liquid out as possible.

Step 3: Put Tuna in a Bowl and Add Other Ingredients

Add Mayo (or tartar sauce if you prefer) and any other ingredients you might like. With just mayo the sandwich will be plain. I usually add a little bit of BBQ sauce, honey dijon mustard and a little bit of relish. Other people like to add diced celery, onion, or anything else you find in your fridge. Experiment!

Step 4: Mix Well

Make sure to break up the chunks of tuna and make sure the mayo is evenly mixed. A smooth consistency is the best.

Step 5: Place in Fridge (optional)

I prefer my tuna sandwich with the bread hot and the tuna cold so I usually refrigerate the tuna mix overnight. This is optional. 

Step 6: Toast the Bread

This is a key step. A little trick I learned is to put both slices of bread in the same slot of the toaster. This will toast only one side of each slice of bread for the perfect amount of crunch.

Step 7: Spread the Tuna

One can of tuna will make 1-2 tuna sandwiches (depending on how much tuna you want). 

Step 8: Enjoy!
