2 batches will fill a medium Freeze Dryer tray, 3 will fill a Large Tray *


  1. Mix all ingredients
  2. Line tray with parchment or silicone mat 
  3. Spread tuna salad out on tray
  4. Put sliced bread on a tray
  5. Configure dividers into 20 portions and push down into tuna salad
  6. Pre Freeze 
  7. Freeze Dry

    Note: You can make tuna salad without yogurt or mayo and then rehydrate with mayo and water.

Cycle Time:

My cycle time running a mixed load in a Large Freeze Dryer with a Premier Pump was longer because of warmer, humid weather, also did not pre freeze.


To rehydrate bread put into a bag with a damp paper towel for 15-16 hours For the tuna salad add water, stir, let sit, repeat until desired consistency is reached.


* Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray   Medium = 6 Cups/Tray   Small = 4 Cups/Tray
Cycle times & rehydration for reference only. Your results may vary.
