I grew up eating this but my mom just opened a can of cream of mushroom and a little milk, added a dab of butter and canned tuna. She added pepper and served on toast. Never had peas in it but sometimes she topped with soft poached eggs so the yolk ran all over. And that's how I make it today. Delish!
Made as directed and really enjoyed this as a quick lunch. DH suggests that sliced or chopped hard-boiled egg in this would be great, too. This is definitely kid-friendly, with its fun presentation, making it worth cleaning the muffin pan! Thanks, Seasoned Cook! Made for Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap.
