Terry came up with this recipe not long after we got married in 1973. We've been making it this way ever since. I like lots of  crackers on top so we'll start there:

1- Tube of Ritz crackers

1- Tube of Saltines

3-Tablespoons of melted butter

 

Crush the crackers in a gallon storage/freezer bag, mixing the crackers together. Pour the melted butter in and mix some more. Set aside to put on top.

 

We use a basic white sauce along with Tuna packed in water. How thick you want the sauce is up to you. A thin sauce uses 1 TBSP Butter & 1 TBSP flour to a cup of milk. A thicker sauce is made by doubling the Butter & Flour. I usually make 2 Cups of the sauce and go in between.

 

3-TBSP Melted Butter

3-TBSP Flour

1/4-tsp Salt

1/4-tsp Pepper

2-Cups Milk

2-Cans Tuna (in water)

6-oz. Noodles +/- (depends on how many folks your feeding. This is for 2 adults with a good appetite)

 

Melt the butter in a pan, mix in the flour, salt & pepper. Add the milk, mixing as you pour slowly. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes, stirring very often.

 

Drain the water from the Tuna. Boil the noodles. When noodles are ready, drain & put in a casserole dish. Mix the Tuna into these with a fork. Pour the sauce in and mix some more. Put the crackers on top the seal the moisture in. Have the oven preheated to 350-375°. Bake until the crackers are browned some. Take out and enjoy!

 

Seems to go well with a side of Peas! Or they could be mixed in.

Thanks Kenny. I have saved this one and will try it later this weekend. We used to have this a lot quite a few years ago. Just got away from making it. My wife uses cream of mushroom soup for the base. I think we will try your way. Sounds better. Thanks again.                                                                 Roger

That's what is nice about it, you can fix it so many different ways depending on your likes!

I like the butter & cracker idea especially the thicker sauce option. My wife puts peas in hers.

I haven't looked but do we have a special or favorite recipe thread on here. I know we have the what did you have for dinner today. This might be good to have....with pics of the dish :)

I make that type of sauce all the time. Be sure to cook the flour and butter until it just starts to color up with salt and pepper before adding the milk,it makes the sauce taste much better and you can add some brie cheese to take it over the top!!! Yum yum!!

And for desert, get your favorite pie filling, " I like black berries" put them in a crock pot. take a white cake mix pour on top and throw a stick of butter in and let it cook. Serve with a scoop of cool whip and enjoy. This is so easy to make even I have made it. You don't have to mix anything. Thank's for your Tuna casserole, I'll show my gal.

who on God's green earth eats tuna casserole? possibly the most distasteful thing I have ever had. I think skunk pizza would be more appetizing. My opinion any hoo. Blast away

I might have a go at this haute cuisine recipe from the States.

Seriously, what's 1 tube of saltines? Also a photo of the finished dish would be good so I have an idea of what it look like. I enjoy cooking but I just cannot visualise it. Also what's the origin of this dish ?

Thanks.
