So on occasion I buy a can or 2 of tuna and make tuna salad for sandwiches. Now being one that was raised to make stuff last I can get like a dozen or so from 1 can of tuna. Yet when others around here make one they get 1 maybe 2 largely due to the fact that they make each sandwich 2-3 inches thick. I like mine somewhat thin (1/4 to 1/2 inch thick).


So on average for those who make tuna salad sandwiches how many can you get from a single (2 ounce) can?

A 2oz. can?? Wouldn't make but one pitiful sandwich when other ingredients are added. That must be snack size. Did it come with a couple saltines?

I think your definition of a sandwich and the rest of the world's is quite different. What is frugal about 'stretching' a can of tuna and eating 24 slices of bread?

PS: Your 2" to 3" think is a lie as well...because a full can of tuna isn't even close to that.

A dozen? Seriously?
Does each sandwich just smell like tuna?

in case we americans make tuna salad sandwiches differently than you guys, we tend to mix the tuna up with mayonnaise, relish, egg, and onion (optional). Thats what im talking about. Not plopping one can of tuna on a slice of bread.

I'm making tuna right now btw..
But after putting hard boiled egg whites, pickles, mayo, and a smidge of cream cheese
I'm putting the tuna mix into pita halves.
We ran out of bread.

The 5oz can would be the norm here or the bigger can. With a 5oz can a little minced celery and dill pickle, mayo and 2 eggs we'd make 2 sandwiches. They wouldn't be more than 1/4" to 1/2" thick. Add an extra egg to stretch it we could make 3 sandwiches.

Depends on the size of the can - 5 oz, maybe 2 sandwiches, 7 oz, 3-4. Also depends on how much extra stuff goes in the tuna salad. Some days, I'm lazy, and only throw in mayo & some minced onion. Other times, chopped onion, tomato, and cucumber (yes, it's good that way).

Though we really don't do much bread, more likely the tuna either goes into a tomato, on a salad, or in a low-carb tortilla.
