The perfect Tuna Mornay. This recipe was really easy to follow and had a good amount of flavor. I also added a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and mushrooms that I needed to use up. I remember my Mum used to add chopped boiled egg to hers which was a yummy addition. I made my own bread crumbs as recommended which seemed to make all the difference. I have saved this to my favorites to make again and again. Thank you for sharing Tisme.
