Tea Sandwich Saturday #33 - Tuna & Goat Cheese

Canned tuna is one of those foods I enjoy only once in a great while, but this week I craved tuna and decided to see if I could make it with "tea sandwich flair." I tweaked a recipe I found online and very much enjoyed this upgraded tuna recipe!

You can serve it between rounds (or rectangles) of bread or, below, as an open-faced sandwich. The goat cheese adds a nice creamy texture and would, I think, be a pleasing addition to a tray of tea sandwiches.

Tuna & Goat Cheese Spread

1 (6-ounce) can water-packed tuna, drained
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning (or to taste; I used a little more)
4 tablespoons goat cheese, crumbled

In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients and combine well. Yields enough spread for about eight 2-inch round tea sandwiches.


  1. I like tuna salad sandwiches and these look good. Thanks for this recipe that is a little different.

    The pink glass plate is very pretty.

  2. Now that sounds fascinating. Love the pink dish under the sandwich too.

  3. Seems like goats and tea sandwiches
    are an odd combo, but presented on that lovely plate,they are a winner !

  4. "Tuna and Mayo" sandwiches are served in every English village tearoom I have visited. However, goat cheese certainly adds and interesting twist. I believe I have the same Depression Glass plate. It was my mother's.

  5. Your recipe sounds delicious, Angela- very creative! Love the pink plate too! I will try this one, thanks for sharing,

  6. Looks like a delicious grown up version of tuna salad. Thanks for the idea.
