Tuna and Egg Canapes

Okay, so if you haven’t noticed, I have a love relationship with canapes (open-faced sandwiches). Canapes are the perfect additional to any party or get together. We especially love canapes for lunch with kids at home during the summer. They are super easy to make, easy to serve and everyone is happy. I particularly love these open-faced sandwiches because my children, who do not like tuna, love these! If children approve, that’s a winner in my book. When I serve these for my children, they don’t like anything else on them. I, on the other hand, like to take them up a notch. First, I love adding chopped sweet onion when mixing. Then I like making some with cucumber, tomatoes, canned jalapenos or avocado slices. First add a very thin tuna layer over the slice of bread, then add the sliced vegetable and top with a generous portion of tuna. So simple, yet so yummy. Add some chopped herbs before serving if desired.
