Filled Potatoes

My friend Tess sent me a link to this recipe on a fantastic Australian website.  I’ve put the links in my blog roll (along with links to some other cool sites and blogs). Find it on the left menu.

This recipe is great because it uses store cupboard ingredients and my children love tuna!  I’m planning to try substituting tinned salmon for the tuna too.

Serves 4 (still to be tested though)!

Ingredients:
1 cup rice
30g butter
2 tbsp plain flour
1.5 cups milk
medium tin of tuna in springwater
1 cup grated cheese
1 cup mixed frozen vegetables
small tin of creamed corn
pinch black pepper
pinch cayenne pepper

Method:
1. Boil the rice in a large pot of water.
2. Melt butter in saucepan. Add flour to butter and stir for 2 mins, being careful not to burn.
3. Gradually add the milk. Stir white sauce until the mixture starts to thicken. Add the grated cheese.
4. Add the drained tuna. Add the creamed corn.
5. Season to taste with peppers.
6. Add frozen veggies to almost cooked rice. Cook for a few minutes until done and rinse rice and veggies under cold water.
7. Pour rice and veggies into casserole dish.
8. Pour tuna mix over rice and veggies. Sprinkle with grated cheese and grill if desired to lightly brown.
