Freeze Ahead Tuna Sandwiches


You can also form and make these sandwiches to eat immediately! These sandwiches are perfect to make in the summer for school lunch boxes in the fall.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 4 sandwiches


  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons whipped salad dressing (Miracle Whip)
  • 1 (6 ounce) can chunk tuna, drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread


In medium bowl, combine cream cheese and whipped salad dressing and beat until smooth. Stir in tuna, onions, carrot, and lemon juice and blend well to combine.

Spread softened butter thinly on each slice of bread and spread tuna filling to make sandwiches. Wrap in freezer wrap and place in gallon freezer bag. Label sandwiches and freeze.

To thaw, let thaw overnight in refrigerator, or add to brown bag lunches in the morning and let thaw until lunchtime. Make sure sandwiches are eaten within 2 hours of being completely thawed.
