Crack'in Good Tuna Mornay

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Catherine Robson

I found this recipe in the 1991 edition of the Australian Women's Weekly. It has been a family favourite ever since. A very good recipe to fall back on to if you forget to defrost some meat for dinner.

This was an excellent recipe. The best tuna mornay I have maked so is a definate keeper for me. The flavour of the egg and peas made it more delightful I have been on the lookout for a great tuna mornay recipe and have now found it thanks!
