We all loved this recipe, I also added some frozen peas and some spring onions. I used 2 185gram tins of tuna. Was yummy! Thanks for posting. =)
This was quick to put together since I did have the ingred. on hand (I only had 3 med. potatoes on hand but they did the trick). I used one egg in the mixture and after the cheese melted, broiled for a few min. till I got a lightly browned top. Served with peas and biscuits on the side. The two teens and husband (two helpings!) are not really tuna fans but ate without complaint. I'd say that means I'll definitely be making again. Thanks Jen T. for another "cozy classic." Roxygirl
My very picky fiancee loved this recipe. She ended up eating at least 2/3 of it and usually she hardly finishes a meal. I halved the recipe and it worked out well. I'm going to try it with cheese this time and possibly a bit of sour cream and chives would help it out as well. It was very easy to make and I would definitely make it again.
