This was requested by our Snip at the dinner thread. It can be served over buttered toast, rice, noodles, or my favorite, mashed potatoes.
It's stick to the ribs budget friendly, and kids love it.
Fancy Creamed Tuna
1 small onion, chopped
2 ribs of celery, thinly sliced
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
4 Tbs. butter or margarine
4 Tbs. flour
2 cups of whole milk, or
1 C. of canned milk with 1 C. chicken broth
1 or 2 cans of drained tuna
2 or 3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 cup frozen peas (optional if kids hate them)
Lemon Pepper, and seasoned salt to taste
Saute the onion, celery and mushrooms in butter till nearly tender. Add the flour and cook for a minute or two to cook out the flour taste. Add the liquid slowly while mixing and bring to the simmer for a few minutes to thicken.
Add the tuna, chopped eggs and peas. Gently mix until hot and the peas defrost. Season with lots of lemon pepper and some seasoned salt to taste.
