This was a staple in our home as a kid we put it over boiled potatoes but i always preferred it over toast. Still my favorite comfort food.

I tried it but my Mom taught me a very similar and much better recipe I'd had all my life that she got off the Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup label. Yep, that's right, the CoM soup is a key ingredient with milk instead of water. It's also important to use solid white tuna. Still use the flour to thicken it. No butter is needed. Keep the salt and pepper. I've since improved on that with a dollop of sour cream. Love it best on rye toast. Occasionally I'll play with it a bit and use oregano or basil and/or granulated garlic. They're all great too. Just depends on your mood at the time. This recipe as written is ok but try it Mom's and my way and you will definitely notice a difference

Love this! Had this all the time growing up and was craving it this week. This is the exact recipe my mother would make, but depending on what we had laying around the house, she would sometimes throw in a handful of cheese or peas at the end. Also, super cheap to make which is always a plus

This isn't gourmet, but it is delicious. Like the other reviewers said, this was one of my mom's recipes that helped feed a large family on a small budget. I prefer it over a baked potato.

This reminds me of growing up in the 80's or having a tuna casserole. I made a couple of modifications to the recipe. I added 1/4 of a finely chopped onion and 1/4 of a finely chopped apple to the butter and caramelized them before adding the flour.

Our stories sound much alike except my dad passed away and times were tough with just mom also in the 70's. She would make this, but she always added a can of peas. I liked it as a kid and then I made it for my kids, now it's just hubby and me at home and I still make it now and again. It's quick and cheap. I looked your recipe up today to see if I others added something special to make it better. When I read your recipe I though no need, but I did add half a chopped onion.

thank you! I loved this growing up and was trying to find the recipe that uses milk and not condensed cream soups and this is it! The only change I make is to add fresh or frozen peas.
