Comfort Food: Tuna Pea Wiggle

Frosty, snowy days call for comfort food. I have many childhood favorites: tuna sandwich and tomato soup, grilled cheese and tomato soup, spaghetti and meat balls with a ton of parmigiana cheese, and tuna pea wiggle. The first time my Mom made it for daycare and my husband was there he said: "Tuna What?" The best and easiest way to explain it is that it's the sauce you put on tuna noddle casserole, only better.

Tuna Pea Wiggle
(serves 4 adults)
3 Tbs butter
3 Tbs flour
2 1/4 Cup Milk
3-4 Cans of tuna
1 lb cooked frozen peas
2 sleeves of saltine crackers

1. Make a rue: melt butter over medium heat remove from heat to add flour and mix until creamy. Add milk all at once.
2. Stir milk, flour, and butter until thick and bubbly. Cook one minute more. Remove from heat
3. Add tuna and cooked pease

Serve over crackers (we like them crumbled). I would estimate that we use 10-12 crackers per serving.

When we feed this to the daycare kids we omit the peas and serve them on the side. They also like their crackers whole and they eat the rest of the wiggle like gravy dip.
