Tuna mornay is a creamy dish made with canned tuna, pasta and a white sauce. Its comforting and savoury flavours on top of toast make for night light dinner.
My mum used to make Tuna Mornay for us as children. I remember when she began to make this for us, it wasn’t long after she purchased her first microwave oven. She went and had lessons at the local TAFE on using it and came home with a folder full of microwave recipes. It sounds similar to what the thermomix is today, the newest greatest gadget, and you can go and get lessons. Mum always served the mornay on toast, and as per the recipe suggested she served it with crushed potato chips.
I’ve included a regular and thermomix recipe for this Tuna Mornay below.
Looking at other Tuna Mornay recipes, traditionally, it’s not served with potato chips, but to me, it just isn’t the same without them; I know it’s not a healthy option, but I continue to serve them with crushed BBQ chips on top. I also like to add in small spiral pasta, which makes the dish go further; my recipe usually makes enough so I can have leftovers the next day for lunch!
