I always say that if you have a tin of tuna in your cupboard, then you have the base for a filling meal. Combine it with a delicious slice of Leerdammer cheese and some of sandwich ingredients and you have yourself a super loaded tuna sandwich.
Happy second day of sandwich week here on Hungry Healthy Happy. I started the week off with The Ultimate Breakfast Grilled Cheese Sandwich, which was kind of appropriate to post a cheese recipe, as I am in Switzerland at the moment on a press trip, and there is cheese EVERYWHERE!

I have really enjoyed taking part in the Leerdammer challenge. It is getting me to think outside of the box and create a sandwich that I wouldn’t usually, or just add new things to some of my existing favourite sandwiches. I think we can all get stuck in a rut sometimes, especially when it comes to out lunches.
I am working with Leerdammer to promote sandwiches being #BetterWithLeerdamer and they really are better with Leerdammer. It is the number 1 branded natural sliced cheese in the UK, and packed full of flavour, so one slice goes a long way. It’s also so handy having natural sliced cheese in your fridge – it makes lunch time so much easier. You only have to look at Leerdammer’s video to see how easy it is.
The creaminess from the Leerdammer cheese means that you don’t have to use as much mayo or yoghurt with the tuna and I really like the added crunch that the peppers add. Using rocket lettuce means you get a nice subtle pepper taste that you wouldn’t get if you used regular lettuce.
How To Make A Loaded Tuna Sandwich
Ingredients – Serves 2:
4 slices of gluten free bread
2 slices of Leerdammer Light cheese
1 tin of tuna in spring water

Juice of half a lemon
A pinch of sea salt and black pepper
2 handfuls of rocket (arugula) lettuce
1) In a large bowl, mix together the tuna, peppers and spring onion and mix in the mayo, lemon juice and salt and pepper.
2) On 2 of the slices of bread, add the cheese slices and top with the lettuce.
3) Top with the tuna mix and the second slice of bread.
