Recipe by pattikay in L.A.
This is one of those recipes that is so beat up that it fell out of the book - The More with Less Cookbook by Doris Janzen Longacre. I learned a lot from this cookbook when I was a newlywed and new mother figuring out how to plan meals. These are great if you make your own biscuit dough but they're super easy if you use the refrigerated kind!

This has been a staple recipe at my house since i discovered it on RecipeZaar three years ago. I usually leave out the pickle relish. Instead, I add about a quarter tsp. of dijon mustanrd to the mayonnaise, and use green onions (whites and a little green part) in the mix. My DSs love it!
- 1 (6 ounce) can tuna, drained
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1⁄3 cup chopped celery
- mayonnaise (enough to moisten)
- 2 teaspoons sweet pickle relish (not in orginal recipe, but that's how we like it)
- 1 teaspoon chives (or onion, finely chopped, I never add this actually, but if you love onions, go for it!)
- biscuit dough (homemade or refrigerated)
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine all ingredients except biscuit dough.
- Prepare biscuit dough - or open the tube :).
- If homemade dough, roll out to 1/8-to 1/4 inch thickness. If premade biscuit dough, flatten out each biscuit a bit - I divide them in half if they're the big fat type.
- Cut into 4-inch squares or rounds.
- Place about 2 1/2 T filling onto each dough piece, fold over and pinch to seal.
- I don't bother sealing these all the way - just roll them up and pinch closed across the top. Some of the filling may sneak out the ends, but I prefer them this way.
- Bake 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
- To freeze: Bake as directed and allow to cool. Wrap in plastic wrap and then place in a freezer bag. Seal, pushing out as much air as possible. Label and freeze.
- To serve: Allow to thaw in fridge or microwave. Good warm or cold.
