{Tuna Cassarole }

This is one of my kids all time FAVORITES!
Tuna Casserole with Cheesy Biscuits
(this recipe feeds my family (7) and then some)

2 cup milk
1 cup water
1 can cream of mushroom
3 TBSP. butter
more or less of the following ingredients
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp onion
1/2 tsp pepper (we like more)
4 TBSP cornstarch or flour (for thickening)

Cook in a sauce pan till thick then add
3 cans of tuna (you can get away with 2 cans if your family doesn't like tuna as well)
pour into a 9x13 baking dish.

Cheesy Biscuits:
2 1/4 cup flour
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4-1 tsp salt
1/2-1 tsp garlic (optional)
2 TBSP chopped chives (optional)
3 eggs
3/4 cup milk
shredded cheese as desired (about a cup or so)

add all the dry ingredients then make a well in the dry ingredients and add the eggs and milk stir just until the flour is moist.

drop by large spoon fulls (the size of an ice cream scoop) into the sauce. HINT: they raise A LOT, you will want to resist the urge to put them to close to each other, you will think they look to small if you are not careful they will absorb all the liquid and be dry.

Bake 425* 12-17 min. serve with some veggies!

NOTE: You can put these biscuits on lots of different casseroles like cream of chicken with chopped chicken breasts and broccoli, carrots and cauliflower! Yummy and Easy!
