My mother taught me to make this when we were short on cash. We typically make our own cream sauce by whisking 1 tablespoon of butter with 2 tablespoons of flour and then very slowly adding a total of 2 cups of milk until it thickens. Whisk the flour and butter mixture constantly while adding the milk to reduce lumps. Then simmer it a bit and as it thickens add the tuna, we use two cans drained and then add a can of peas and salt and pepper. This will always be a favorite of mine. Thanks for posting.-20 Jan 2008

This is a great quick and easy meal. We adapt it for dinner by adding a can of drained peas and pouring over cooked rice or noodles. If you like, spice it up with a bit of ground red pepper. You can use any creamed soup you have on hand, we like cream of mushroom esp. with dinner.-09 Feb 2007

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Generally speaking, most of my tuna sandwiches are on toast. the combination just works, but I'm surprised I've never tried creamed tuna over it. Peas in my tuna casserole as a kid is something I grew up eating so I'm used to it and honestly, think if the peas are cold and added last it really does brighten up the dish. but it seems to take on a completely different flavor and texture once it's been cooked. Perhaps some minced onion, parmesan, and fresh parsley would add a little extra flavor and elevate this a bit. not that it needs it!

For me this has always been a great comfort food quick and easy to make and really nice tasting too. I always add a little chopped green onion and a pinch of cayenne or red pepper and perhaps a small squeeze of lemon juice. Sheer heaven! However I have never added peas before but they did add an interesting flavor. Not really necessary though so include themor leave them out to me it does not make a huge difference.

Add tuna to basic white sauce (richer made with evap. milk) then serve over waffles for Sunday night supper. My mom even served this to company (friends) gathered for an evening of socializing. Creamed chicken over waffles worked also. Add peas if desired.

I agree, pj! Especially since that's the way my mom made this budget-night meal. We always liked the idea of using the toaster to make dinner. We didn't have a lot of money, but mom made sure we always had decent meals on the table. She was pretty good at tweaking them and making a lot out of very little.

I think I'd make just a traditional white sauce, instead of the flour and water for thickening. It would taste richer and much better. in my opinion!

World War II, food rationing and tight money. So my mother made a can of tuna feed the four of us and we ate it at least once a week. No peas in our creamed tuna, but chopped sweet onion on top and some shredded Cheddar. I don't know if canned tuna is processed better now or not, but the dish tastes so much better to me when I make it. Still the same old recipe, though. I like the little additions some have mentioned here.

Those creamy sauces really made almost anything way more filling. Thank you for stopping by to share your memory with me.

Creamed tuna on toast is comfort food.

If you really want to shake things up, swap out the peas with diced green chiles (7 oz can at a minimum) and add enough paprika to turn the gravy a faint "salmon" color (at least a teaspoon). It is delicious like this.

Saturday 27th of February 2021

Sounds delicious! Thanks for the suggestion.

Sunday 16th of August 2020

Loved this as a go to easy meal when we were kids..still do. Mom used to add chopped hard boiled eggs to the sauce and we had it over crumbled saltine crackers.

Monday 20th of January 2020

Ahh, grew up on this stuff. Still love it. Lots of butter on the toast, and we add a splash of Worcestershire and onion powder to the white sauce.

Tuesday 21st of January 2020

That sounds delicious, Heather! You can never go wrong with extra butter.

This was my mother’s go to staple. She was unusual in the late 1950s and early 1960s as a working Mom. She taught nursing at a local university, and often didn’t get home until after 5, so having something she could get on the table in 20 minutes flat was a blessing. She served it in a way I’ve not seen before or since. She served it on crunchy chow mein noodles that she heated on a sheet pan in the oven, and instead of frozen peas, she served it with Leseur brand tiny peas. She always served it with a lettuce cup, with pineapple slices or chunks, a dollop of mayo and a marichino cherry on top. Way before I could read, when I saw that silver can (that was distinctive to LeSeur brand peas. still is) I knew my favorite supper was coming. My husband didn’t like tuna, and I had two growing boys, so I switched to the large can of chicken, and doubled the White sauce, but my kids still grew up with the silver can. Now that I cook mostly for myself, I’m back to using tuna, and often use frozen peas, since i can adjust the amount, but it’s still the meal I turn to when I need something quick and comforting! Thanks for letting me meander down memory lane!

Buffalo Tuna Melt, or What to Make When You Accidentally Skip Dinner

Ever spend all afternoon dreaming about what you&rsquore going to make for dinner, only to end up accidentally skipping it altogether after traffic/errands/laziness/life got in the way? We feel your struggle. Instead of scarfing down a handful of pretzels between bath time and bedtime and calling it a meal, we&rsquore betting that everything you need to make a Buffalo tuna melt is already hiding in your pantry.

Canned tuna never fails to fill us up when we&rsquore busy plus, it&rsquos protein-rich, versatile and shelf-stable. But instead of going the usual route that may feel like settling (read: noshing on cold tuna and crackers), we like serving the fish on a warm, toasty sandwich. Here, we spruce it up with spicy, vinegary Buffalo sauce and cool ranch dressing, plus diced celery and carrots for crunch. Grilled in butter and piled high with melty mozzarella, this wing-inspired handheld is far from an impromptu struggle meal (despite being just as easy to make).

3 tablespoons celery and carrot mix, diced

3 tablespoons Buffalo sauce

2 tablespoons ranch dressing

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste (optional)

2 slices thick-sliced white, rye or sourdough bread

2 to 3 slices mozzarella cheese

1. Open and drain the tuna. Add it to a bowl with the celery and carrot pieces. Add the Buffalo sauce, ranch dressing and pepper, then stir to combine.

2. Once the tuna is prepared, heat the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the bread to the skillet and toast until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.

3. Flip one slice of bread over in the pan. Spoon the tuna onto the toasted side and gently spread and flatten it to evenly distribute. If you have leftover tuna, cover and refrigerate it to enjoy tomorrow. Layer mozzarella cheese onto the tuna. Pick up the second slice of bread and put it toasted-side down onto the cheese to help it melt. Flip the entire sandwich over and reduce heat to low. (Feel free to regrease the pan with a little more butter or cooking spray before placing the sandwich back down.)

4. Cover the sandwich and continue to toast it until the cheese is melted, about 2 to 3 minutes.


Tips for success

Think sweet, spicy, savory, salty, crunchy, and creamy.

Start with the toasts and fill in the gaps. The toasts will take up the most space and serve as the centerpiece for the board. Make space for those and fill the space with smaller bites.

  • Fresh baby greens such as baby kale or spinach or baby arugula work as a beautiful edible garnish. And there&rsquos a health bonus too. Use fresh greens to stack more vegetables into each bite.
  • Plain, roasted, or seasoned nuts can easily cover any empty spaces. You might also toss a few of these onto the tuna toasts for a little extra crunch.

Add a little of everything. Snack boards are the perfect way to explore tidbits of this and that from the fridge and pantry. It&rsquos also a fun way to enjoy specialty foods you may get during the holidays.

Add flavor and flair. The only difference between an elevated snack board and an ordinary lunch or appetizer tray is variety and presentation.

  • Stuffed green olives add crisp, briny flavor and color to the board. Kalamata olives mix in well for a little Mediterranean flavor.
  • I added green and red grapes and peach jam for sweetness, rainbow baby carrots for crunch and color, and cheese and avocado for a bit of creaminess.

This is the best tuna salad sandwich!

You can enjoy this on sandwich bread or toss it in pasta to make pasta salad. It really is so versatile.

We also love tuna salad open faced sandwiches. This makes amazing tuna melts. Add cheese and toast in the oven for a hot and delicious sandwich idea.

Feel free to add bell pepper or red onion to the tuna mixture when you are making it. It is easy to adapt to what you have on hand.

It is such a classic recipe and a great base to add extra ingredients that you love. Give this a try! We enjoy it all the time but it is especially great in the summer when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen.

Keep your kitchen cool and make this easy recipe. You will be so glad you did.
