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. Read More

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!! Read More

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

Excellent receipe-- just like mom used to make. However I add 2 or even 3 cans of tuna to make it chunkier and up the protein. Read More

My mom always made this for me and my dad when I was little. She still does for him on occasion. She doesn't put the peas in it and we only have it on toast. I actually love this for breakfast. It's a great alternative to biscuits and gravy and it is so much easier to make. It usually only takes me about 30 minutes to make but I've been making it since I was little. Read More

My mom puts a chopped onion in first (brown it) This might help those who find it bland. Read More
