Pan Bagnat Tuna Sandwich

Pan Bagnat Tuna Sandwich


Total Time

2 Hours 19 Mins

Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: 1/4 sandwich)

Quality ingredients make all the difference here. Use premium canned or jarred white tuna, the best fruity olive oil you have, and garden-fresh veggies. We chop up the olives and capers and mix them into the tuna for a briny flavor hit that won’t slip out of your sandwich as you eat. Niçoise are small French black olives; kalamata olives will work just fine in their place.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-oz.) whole-wheat sourdough loaf
  • 1/4 cup chopped Niçoise or kalamata olives
  • 3 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 5 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 2 (5-oz.) cans water-packed premium white tuna, drained
  • 2 medium-size green leaf lettuce leaves
  • 3 tomato slices
  • 1 large hard-boiled egg, thinly sliced

How to Make It

Step 1

Halve loaf horizontally. Scoop out halves to make 1-inch bread shells. Toast shells until golden.

Top tuna mixture with lettuce, tomato, egg slices, and top shell. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 hours or up to overnight. Cut into quarters.
