Learning how to make cream tuna on toast is economical and is easy to make. Tuna and peas are added to a smooth creamy white sauce, seasoned to taste, and served over toast. In twenty minutes you are sitting down to a delicious, easy, home cooked meal.
To make cream tuna on toast, you will need:
- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ cup flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups milk
- 1 can of tuna
½ cup frozen peas
- Open the can of tuna and drain the juice from the can. Pour the tuna onto a plate and use a fork to separate the chunks. Place the frozen peas in a bowl and microwave them for one minute. Drain the peas.
Place the butter, salt, and flour in a pan on a low heat to make a basic white sauce for your cream tuna. As the butter melts, use a spatula to mix the ingredients together into a paste. Very slowly add the milk while stirring continuously. Smooth out any forming lumps with the spatula. Keep adding the milk slowly and stirring until all the milk is in the pot. Continue stirring until the sauce begins to thicken using care not to allow scorching.
Add the drained peas and the drained tuna and stir until the mixture is hot. Spoon the cream tuna over toast. You can make variations of cream tuna on toast by adding the cream tuna to pasta, rice, or other type of bread instead.
If you add the milk too quickly to the melted butter and flour it will make the butter cold and hard and cause your basic white sauce to lump.
