Creamed Tuna on Toast

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by grandma cooks

My mother used this recipe throughout my childhood to feed 4 children. I am 62 years old, so this recipe is at least that old. It doesn't look that appetizing, but be creative and dress it up with a spring of parsley or maybe a side dish of English peas.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Both Momma and Grandma (her mother) made this for me as a kid growing up. I used to ask for 'tuna with white stuff' and was such a good girl so I could get this for lunch! They didn't put the tuna in the sauce: they drained it, then crumbled it on the toast and poured the sauce on top. I used to get extra sauce, cause I loved it so much. I never thought to ask them how to make it, and just hoped I could find something like it today since I was craving. This is IT! I did add a pinch of fresh nutmeg just cause I'm older now and love nutmeg in cream sauces, but this is amazing as is! I lost both of them over the past 4 years, and this recipe just put them back in my kitchen today! So I repeat, thank you for giving me a piece of those ladies back!!
