Cream Cheese Tuna Spread

Tuna brings together three kid pleasers: tuna, cream cheese and bagels. It's a simple sandwich spread for breakfast, snacks, or a quick bite. You eat this as a dip on just about anything, veggies, chips, crackers, etc. The flavor of tuna is very subtle in this thick and creamy spread. This delicious recipe came from my aunt.


3 (5 oz) cans of tuna
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese (room temp)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 small sweet onion (Use less for keto)
1 tbsp dill
2 tbsp chives or green onion
Salt, pepper to taste   

Cream cheese needs to soften at room temp or a microwave. 
Drain water from the cans. Add tuna to the bowl. 
Add mayo and mix well. I used a small mixer. 
Mince onion into small pieces. 
Slice chives and dill. Mix in by spoon.


  1. cool! i make this too except never tried with onion

    1. Onion adds a little crunch to the spread. Give it a try, let me know how you like it.

  2. I love anything with tuna...and this would be fun to sit around and help the kids do homework with after school! (=

    1. Yes, it's perfect for snack.
      Thanks for stopping by Gloria. :-)
