My mother's quick and easy recipe. This recipe uses ingredients you always have on hand in the pantry. It's great when you're in a rush.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Over low heat, melt butter in a saucepan and stir in flour. Slowly add milk while stirring. DO NOT bring to a boil. Cook and stir constantly only until slightly thickened.
  2. Drain tuna and add to mixture.
  3. Lightly stir in salt, pimento and green peas (if used).
  4. Push bread slices into greased muffin tins to form a cup. Toast in oven until light brown.
  5. While toast is warm, pour creamed tuna mixture into bread cups and serve.

Nice meal. I used corn instead of peas as dh does not like peas. I also added lots of pepper and put a boiled egg in the center of each toast cup and then poured tuna mixture over. Very good. Made for Ausie Swap #37.

Made as directed and really enjoyed this as a quick lunch. DH suggests that sliced or chopped hard-boiled egg in this would be great, too. This is definitely kid-friendly, with its fun presentation, making it worth cleaning the muffin pan! Thanks, Seasoned Cook! Made for Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap.
