Cream Tuna on Toast

Kathy Sterling


This is probably how most people make sausage and cream gravy, but my mother always made it with tuna fish. Matter of fact, I have never eaten the sausage version, but I love this.

It is easy to make and fills that spot when you want something hot for lunch or supper, but don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It is our "go" to meal.
