*Reviewed for Edition 8 Make my Recipe in the Aussie Forum* Great potatoes. I loved these- so easy and very, very tasty. I made mornay sauce from scratch to suit my gluten-free diet. I imagine if using a bottled sauce that they would be a total zinch to make. Loved the tuna topping. photos also being posted.

These were so easy and so yummy!!! I loved the tuna filling and serving the rest of it on the side was spot on, as we poured all of it over our potatoes. I made my mornay sauce from scratch and added some gruyere cheese to the sauce as well as sprinkling some over the potatoes. A great combo Pat and it makes for a very delicious meal with minimal effort and maximum taste.
