Creamed Tuna on Cheese Biscuits


It's often dangerous to ask hubby what his favorite meal is. He loves my cooking but would often choose something quite simple like Beefy Macaroni  Skillet or his all time favorite, Creamed Tuna on Cheese Biscuits. We had this as a child--it was inexpensive to make and Mom always had the ingredients in the pantry. She made homemade bread so that is what we had the Creamed Tuna on. My Dad had a name for it that always caused laughs (I have 5 brothers). In an effort to keep this blog G rated I won't say his name but I'm sure you can guess it!
Actually served on these yummy Cheese Biscuits it was pretty tasty. It is a 30 minute meal and most certainly comfort food.
Greg's favorite meal
3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons of butter
2 cups of milk
1 can albacore tuna drained and flaked
Make a rue with the flour and butter, boil for one minute. Add milk and stir rapidly with a whisk to remove all lumps. You should have a smooth sauce. Add tuna, salt and pepper to taste. Serve over Green Onion and Cheese Biscuits. Your hubby will love you forever. This meal has childhood memories.

Fun memories for dad! Though I have to say I'm glad my "comfort food" is Thai Chicken Salad!!!
