Tuna Pan Bagna


  • Mix the mayonnaise with the mustard and lemon juice until well combined in a large bowl. Then add the olives, cucumber, spring onion, tomatoes, tuna and seasonings. Mix well.
  • In another bowl, combine a little oil and balsamic.
  • Cut the baguette in half lengthways and remove a fair amount of the interior. Then generously brush with oil and balsamic and fill the cavity with the tuna mixture, before brushing the top's interior with the oil and balsamic and placing on top.
  • Wrap the individual rolls in plastic wrap and place on a baking tray. Then place another tray on top and weigh down with cans for about 20 mins.
