Tuna sandwich

A tuna sandwich, also known as a tuna fish sandwich, is a sandwich made from canned tuna—usually made into a tuna salad by adding mayonnaise, and sometimes other ingredients such as celery or onion—as well as other common fruits and vegetables used to flavor sandwiches. Common variations include the tuna boat (served on a bun or roll) and the tuna melt (served with melted cheese). The more general term of tuna sandwich may also refer to cuisine utilizing filet of raw or cooked tuna, rather than canned tuna.

In the United States, 52% of canned tuna is used for sandwiches. The tuna sandwich has been called “the mainstay of almost everyone’s American childhood.

A tuna fish sandwich is usually made with canned tuna mixed with mayonnaise and other additions, such as chopped celery, pickles or pickle relish, hard-boiled eggs, onion, cucumber, sweetcorn, and/or black olives. Other recipes may use olive oil, Miracle Whip, salad cream, mustard, or yogurt, instead of or in addition to mayonnaise. The sandwich may be topped with lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, bean sprouts, or avocado in any combination.

 

* A tuna melt has melted cheese on top of the tuna or on a tomato slice and is served on toasted bread.
* A tuna boat is a tuna fish sandwich served in a hot dog bun or long-split bread roll.

A tuna melt sandwich served with French fries

Tuna is a relatively high protein food and it is very high in omega-3 fatty acids. A sandwich made from 100 grams of tuna and two slices of toasted white bread has approximately 287 calories, 96 of which are from fat (10.5 grams fat). It also has 20 grams of protein and 27 grams of carbohydrates.

A larger, commercially prepared tuna fish sandwich has more calories than noted above, based on its serving size. A 6-inch Subway tuna sub of 238 grams has 480 calories, 210 of those from fat, 600 milligrams of sodium, and 20 grams of protein.

One of America’s Favorites – Pork Tenderloin Sandwich

November 26, 2018 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Pork tenderloin sandwich (large)

The pork tenderloin sandwich contains a breaded and fried cutlet similar to the Wiener Schnitzel and is popular in the Midwest region of the United States, especially in the state of Indiana. The sandwich can first be traced back to the Nick’s Kitchen restaurant in Huntington, Indiana (near Fort Wayne).

The primary differences between a Pork Tenderloin sandwich and a Wiener Schnitzel are that the Pork Tenderloin sandwich is made exclusively using pork loin and it is deep fried instead of pan fried. The Pork Tenderloin sandwich is also usually served on a bun. There is a grilled variant of the Pork Tenderloin that omits the breading and grills the tenderloin instead of deep frying it.

A Pork Tenderloin sandwich is traditionally prepared from a thinly sliced piece of pork tenderloin, hammered thin with a meat mallet. The meat is then dipped in flour, eggs and breadcrumbs or crushed saltine crackers before being deep fried in oil. After cooking, the prepared Pork Tenderloin is then served on a hamburger bun, with the meat overlapping the bun considerably. The sandwich can be served with condiments such as mustard, lettuce, onions, pickles, and mayonnaise.

The sandwich is usually served with a side of french fries, though onion rings are often provided instead.

The primary variant of the prepared pork tenderloin is a grilled prepared pork tenderloin. This is a healthier variation as the pork is grilled instead of fried. The meat is seasoned or marinated and then placed on a grill. After cooking, the meat is placed on a hamburger bun and topped with condiments.
