Don't drain the tuna: you're draining off flavor. Drain the peas instead. I added about a tablespoon of onion soup mix as well. Had it as a gravy over mashed potatoes. Pretty good, very easy: will make again.



I've loved this recipe since my Grandmother made me for it as a child - she called it 'creamed tuna on toast'. Since she passed away I could not figure out how to 're-create' it - thank you so much !!



You will need salt & seasonings! I used salt, pepper, & garlic powder in order to make this less bland. EASY recipe and very filling!
