DIRECTIONS

  • Make traditional white sauce: melt butter in saucepan over low/medium to medium heat. Add flour and stir for a minute or two until mixture bubbles. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly. Continue to stir as the sauce heats up, thickens and reaches a slow boil. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper.
  • Combine white sauce, tuna and onion and spoon into a lightly greased two-quart casserole or baking dish. Top with shredded cheese. Arrange biscuits on top and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
  • *For two people, the recipe can be halved; use a small can of refrigerated biscuits (5-6 biscuits.) *Original recipe called for chopped green pepper, which would have been greeted at my house with the enthusiasm level generally reserved for brussels sprouts or Black Plague. Add it if you did a better job raising your children than I did. And cut down on the onion and finely chop it to conceal it from the suspicious eyes of finicky children (or their father.).
