Creamed Tuna on Toast -- WHAT??

Debbie Quimby


I will admit, there is absolutely nothing about this recipe that made sense to me growing up, other than I really liked it. Mama made it often as a way to stretch a dollar.

But, Mama also told us that you shouldn't drink milk with fish. So when I found out she used milk to make this for us, I had some moments of uncertainty ... was my saint of a mother trying to get rid of me?? LOL!

Bottom line, it always reminds me of home and four hungry kids whose mom always served up dishes made with lots of love!
