50g butter, chopped
1 brown onion, finely chopped
1 large celery stalk, trimmed, finely chopped
1/4 cup plain flour
2 cups milk
2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese (although I had tasty in the fridge)
425g can tuna in springwater, drained, flaked
1 medium bread roll
olive oil cooking spray
I made a very basic salad of baby cos lettuce, cucumber and tomato, to accompany it.
1. Preheat oven to 180deg C. Heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat for 2 minutes or until melted & foaming. Add onion and celery. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until onion has softened. Add flour. Using a wooden spoon stir to combine. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes or until mixture bubbles.
2. Remove pan from heat. Slowly add milk, 1/4 cup at a time, stirring constantly to prevent lumps forming. Return pan to medium heat. Cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until sauce boils and thickens, Remove from heat. Stir in cheese and tuna.
3. Transfer the mixture to an ovenproof dish. Break the bread roll up & sprinkle it over the top. Lightly spray with oil. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve with side salad.
Mr Creator isn't normally a fan of tuna mornay, but he had a second helping. The kids all liked it too and it was really a quick, easy meal for the family. We'll be having this again :)
Bye for now, K
