Homemade tuna bake

Last week, The Boyf and I made a scrumptious tuna bake from a little cookbook called "Easy Meals From South of The Winterberg". Today I thought I would share the recipe with you all...

Things you will need:
  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • oil ( I use olive oil)
  • 1 can (200g) tuna in brine
  • 375 ml  cooked rice (I like to use brown rice)
  • 200ml milk
  • 100ml Mayonnaise
  • 4 large eggs (preferably free range)
  • 5ml mustard powder (or mustard)
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 25ml chopped parsley
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • A cup of grated cheddar cheese 

    1.  Preheat the oven to 180 C (thats 350 F) and grease an oven proof dish.
    2. Saute onions in a little oil.
    3. Cook rice
    4. Drain and flake tuna.
    5. Mix onion, tuna and rice together. Then spoon it into a greased dish.
    6. Beat Eggs, milk and mayo together. add the mustard , lemon and parsley. Season to taste and then pour over fish mixture.
    7. Bake for 30 minutes or until mixture is golden brown and set.
    8. Half way through baking, sprinkle all the grated cheese over the top of the tuna bake and continue cooking(see no.7)

    Notes: * I suggest serving this tuna bake with a lettuce, tomato and cucumber side salad * This recipe serves 4 - double ingredients when cooking for more *photo by me.
