Potato Chip Encrusted Tuna Turnovers

Martha Price


I was recently given quite a few cans of tuna, so I dug into my collection of tuna recipes to see what I could come up with.
I used to make these turnovers for my daughter when she was little; she loved them! Sometimes I would wrap them well in aluminum foil, put them in a wide mouth thermos, and they would still be warm come lunch time at school.
These are a snap to prepare, and are thrifty and good. The potato chip crust makes them a little 'special', for kids and adults!
They can be made into a hearty appetizer by tearing the dough for each biscuit in half and halving the filling.
