This recipe goes way back to the Great Depression when times were super tough and people had to make do with what was available. You fed your family with what you could with the little money and little groceries that were on hand.
I love making this for my family because it really is pure comfort food. It's called "creamed tuna" but it's really more like tuna "gravy". Times are not as tough as they were doing the Great Depression but our family still loves it and I try to make it for them at least 2-3 times a month. How long has it been since you have had it?
Slowly pour in the milk, stirring constantly. Keep stirring until it begins to thicken.
Pour in the tuna and peas.
Stir well and add in some shredded cheese. Today we used Mozzarella but I usually use cheddar.
Stir, remove from stove and ladle the creamed tuna mixture over a few pieces of toast and enjoy!
This is equally good over some homemade biscuits, toast points, potatoes, pasta, or even rice.
Makes 4 servings and each serving has 23 grams of carbs.
