Creamed Tuna on Toast

I had a craving for some creamed tuna on toast.  Usually I just throw it together so I can’t say I have a special recipe, but today I measured my ingredients so I could share.  I added additional salt and pepper to my serving so feel free to adjust to your liking.

Creamed tuna

  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 2 Tbs flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • a tiny dash of cayenne if desired
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 can tuna
  • 1/4 cup peas (optional)

Begin by melting butter over medium heat.  Add flour salt, pepper, and cayenne. Stir together until mixture begins to bubble about 1 minute; continue stirring an additional minute.  Add milk; increase heat to medium high stirring frequently.  Bring to a simmer;  mixture will begin to bubble at edges, about 6-8 minutes;  reduce heat to medium and stir constantly for an additional 2 minutes. Add tuna and peas; heat through and serve over toast.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
