Austrian Tuna

With inspirations from m2I

When I was a bachelor I strived to make simple meals with very few ingredients. This particular recipe makes for a great appetizer but is filling enough to be a main course.

Austrian Tuna:
1 loaf of Vienna Bread (hence, the Austrian part)
1 Can of Tuna (hence, the Tuna part)
½ Package of Cream Cheese (about 4 oz.)
Aluminum foil
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Cut the Vienna Bread into 1 inch pieces along its length.
    Do not cut all the way through, and do not cut on the bias.
  3. In between the slices spread some tuna on one side.
    Keep in mind that when you break the bread off— the tuna will stick to the cheese.
    This means that one end will not have any ingrediants— so pick an end you don't care about to start with
  4. Spread the Cream Cheese on the other side.
  5. Wrap entire loaf in Aluminum foil.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes or until the bread is crisp.
  7. Enjoy.

interesting. before i can fully judge, however, i need to figure out what vienna bread is.

my boys do like tuna. and cheese is big in our house. sounds easy and good.

Sounds good......I would eat just about anything with cream cheese on it.

That sounds amazing. And bad for you. Or at least for me. At least in the quantities I'd like to consume it. I NEED to get going on this weight loss thing. I was going to start Monday. It's Thursday, and the first day that I've gotten off to a good start.

But thanks for the great idea. (Although I'm unsure that I know what Vienna bread is.)

I bet LisAway won't mind this post as much as if you'd written about candy she can't get in Poland. Way to appease your readers. :)

I am one of the few people who don't like tuna. But the rest of my family are fans, so I think I will buy the ingredients so my husband can make it for them while I am in France!

I am curious, are Vienna Hot Dogs Austrian? And if so is a Chicago Hot Dog more accurately an Austrian Hot Dog? lol
