Spoon this mixture into the hollowed out egg halves and enjoy.

    1. Sarah says:

      Next cookbook coming in May!!

  4. Wow – eggs and tuna, why on earth hadn’t I thought of that? I’ve been trying to figure out what to put my tuna on now that I don’t eat bread anymore – but eggs! Of course!! Thanks! 🙂

    1. Another idea I did with my tuna was stuff it into a tomato! It was delicious and was inspired by Sarah’s ‘egg houses.’

      *Sending good vibes for your big project 🙂

  5. Denise Phillips says:

    Made these today. Absolutely wonderful.

  6. Chelsea H. says:

    Made these for a Super Bowl party. Other’s were skeptical at first, but now my plate of eggs are empty, and the “normal” deviled eggs are still sitting there! The tuna is a great twist.

  7. Michele Laine says:

    Love all of the positive things happening for you, it’s so much fun to watch! Take a breath and feel the love coming your way. We all appreciate your dedication and LOVE LOVE LOVE your food!!!!!

  8. Amada Cortez says:

    Yum … the only thing missing, BACON bits!!

  9. Marj Pete says:

    Got to try these.

  10. Amanda says:

    My kids love deviled eggs and tuna so this sounds like a great lunch item for them.

  11. mister worms says:

    I am SO making these soon! Perfect for my little one who picks the yolks out of eggs. I can’t say I blame her; I’m not to fond of the yolks unless they’re blended with the white like in an omelette. This looks like a meal inside of an egg white.

    Good luck with your project 🙂

  12. I made these this morning to take to work for lunch, but I already got into them. They are YUMMY! I would have never thought of putting tuna in deviled eggs. I will have to make them again for the kids. I know they will love them.

  13. Just tried this!! yum. My mayo didn’t turn out quite right and I substituted lime for the lemon, but still was a great snack! Thanks!

  14. James says:

    I couldn’t stop thinking about these since I saw the recipe. I just made them, and ate half the batch myself! I bought a fresh tuna steak and fried it in avocado oil and pepper to substitute for the canned tuna. In a word: AMAZING.

  15. Quick question: Garlic is listed in the directions, but not in the list of ingredients, so I’m not sure how much to add. A clove?


    1. Sarah says:

      Don’t know how garlic snuck in there, it’s not part of the ingredients. Maybe is was just my subconscious love of garlic creeping in….

  16. Izabel says:

    I started eating paleo yesterday. I started looking at your website a month ago and really liked what I saw so I am going to try this way of eating for 30 days. I just made this for lunch (including your mayo) and it was really good!! Thanks for sharing this!! 🙂

  17. These are amazing!! I have been struggling to find some new fun lunches for me and my 2 yr old. This takes the cake! We both love them! And she says they look like boats, so they are fun too.

  18. I’ll be trying mine with lime and horseradish!!!

  19. Wow. Just made these with Paleo mayo and they’re perfect!!

  20. Karen says:

    I making Tuna Eggs for 15 yrs or more. My family and friends love them. I go a step further and sprinkle shredded cheese and paprika on top….Yumm-O!!! 🙂

    1. Karen says:

      Opps…I have been making

    2. Great idea with the cheese and paprika, thank you I’ll try that!
