  • 2 cans solid white albacore tuna in water drained
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 large loaf fresh french bread
  • 1-2 medium tomatoes chopped
  • 1 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 2 TBS parsley chopped, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. In a medium bowl combine tuna, mayo, pepper, salt, and onions. Mix well to combine.

  3. Lay 1/2 loaf of bread onto baking sheet. Spread tuna mixture across the top of the bread, then sprinkle with tomatoes and cover with cheese. Add a dash of black pepper over the top.

  4. Cover loosely (you don't want it touching the cheese) with aluminum foil and place into the preheated oven. Bake for 10 minutes, remove foil, then switch to broil and broil the bread for 2-5 minutes, watching it VERY carefully so that it doesn't burn. 

  5. Remove from oven, let cool 5 minutes. Garnish with green onion and parsley if desired. Using a sharp large knife, slice into pieces and serve immediately. 

Recipe Notes

If you would like to make 2 loafs of bread, just double the ingredient list. I had an extra long loaf of bread, so you might be able to get 2 halves from the recipe listed above if your loaf isn't as long as the one I used.
