It’s hard to argue with the classics.

Tuna salad. Egg salad. BLT.

But sometimes classics can be a little… less than exciting.

So just in time for my third Bacon Month post, I figured it was time to make sandwich time a little more something to look forward to.

I didn’t grow up eating seafood at all, let alone tuna salad sandwiches, but my husband did. He makes a killer tuna salad sandwich that remains one of the most requested lunch items in my house. Even our 5-year-old is obsessed with them.

I like my tuna salad on some well toasted sliced bread. Not burnt, but nice and crispy. My kiddo likes his with a pile of crackers to make little mini sandwiches. My husband has been using keto bread or wraps lately.

Over the last few months, I found myself adding more and more things into my tuna salad sandwiches. Slices of juicy, ripe tomato? Absolutely! Avocado? You bet!

We don’t usually put hard boiled eggs in our tuna salad, but sliced on top of the tuna salad is absolutely delicious! It’s like the best of both worlds – tuna salad and egg salad.

Then one day it dawned on us that there was a pretty epic sandwich that could be made combining the best parts of a few of our favorites.

And that is how the this sandwich was born. It’s so much more than a BLT… it’s a TABLET.

This combination hits all the right notes. It’s crunchy, creamy, salty, fresh, and satisfying.

My family absolutely loved this combo. My 5-year-old even ate almost a full one all by himself!

  • Abby

    Combining three class sandwiches? This is BRILLIANT.

  • Analida’s Ethnic Spoon

    That sandwich looks amazing! I wish I had time to construct such a beautiful sandwich during my short lunch hour. Well, it will have to wait for the weekend!

    • The tuna salad comes together quickly and can be made ahead of time. If you have some time to pre-cook the hard boiled eggs and bacon, you can have everything waiting in your fridge for whenever sandwich o’clock strikes!

  • Gunjan

    This looks super delicious.

  • You absolutely can’t go wrong with bacon. Then if you add avocado to the mix you have a heavenly combination. As many times as we’ve made tuna salad we’ve never added avocado to it? We always have avocados in our kitchen. Well, that’s about to change.

    • Right?! It’s like 2 of the best ingredients together. I don’t know what inspired me to put avocado on it the first time, but it’s a really great match. Glad I’ve inspired you to upgrade your tuna salad sandwiches – let me know what you think once you give it a try!

  • If you take away the egg, I would gobble this up in a second. I never though of adding bacon to tuna, but I bet it’s delicious cause bacon goes with everything.

    • Bacon DOES go with everything! And no worries on the egg – I’ll take yours and do double egg on my sandwich. I may even throw you an extra slice of bacon in exchange 😉

  • Sasha @ Eat Love Eat

    Love the sound of this sandwich! I could eat one right now!

  • Kim

    This looks delicious! I love lots of different ingredients on my sandwiches. Can’t wait to try it out!

  • I’m like your little one – my favorite is tuna on nice crunchy crackers! This sounds delicious, especially with that fabulous avocado. Thanks for sharing!

  • Christine

    Love tuna with avocado! I can only imagine how delicious it is in this sandwich. YUM!

  • Ooh I need to try this out. A plain ol tuna salad sandwich is the most requested lunch item with my kids (my 4yo would eat it everyday if I let her), they are also both totally obsessed with bacon and avocado…this sounds like their dream sandwich 🙂

  • Jodie Morgan

    Man, we eat tons of tuna in our house. My husband especially is a BIG fan of a tuna sandwich and I bet he would love this sandwich. Thanks for sharing!

  • Thanks so much – avocado makes most things better!

  • I have never heard of a TABLET sandwich before! My dad would love this sandwich!!

    • I totally made up that name – but I think it’s easier to remember the toppings that way. Let me know what your dad thinks of it if he ends up trying it – I hope he loves it 🙂
