Favorite Childhood Recipes May 17, 2012

Today, I had to type out a recipe for my mom.  In doing so, I came across 2 recipes that grew up on.  I love these recipes, they taste wonderful and easy to make.  The tuna recipe can easily be changed up.  Instead of tuna, you can use canned chicken.  If you have someone in your family that doesn’t like the veggies, instead of chopping them up, put them in a food processor for a finer cut.  You’ll never know they are the veggies are there.  The sauce makes this dish even tastier!

The crockpot recipe is so easy.  It smells and taste wonderful!  The looks are the greatest, but the taste is out of this world!

Tuna Cheese Twist

1 can of tuna
1/2 c celery, chopped
1/2 c green pepper, chopped
1 recipe of biscuit dough
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 1/2 c grated cheese
1/4 c milk
1 egg
1 tablespoon water

Mix a recipe of biscuit dough.  Roll dough out to a 11 x 14 inch rectangle.  Place on a cookie sheet. Make 2 1/2 slits along the long sides of the dough every 1 to 1.5 inches.  Combine tune, celery, green pepper, onion and 1/4 cup of soup.  Spoon mixture along the center of the dough.  Sprinkle 1 c of cheese along the top.  Bring the strips of dough up and over the center of the tuna mixture overlapping the strips to look like a braid.  Mix the egg and water and brush on top of the braid.  Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes.  While the twist is baking, combine the remaining soup, cheese, and milk in a sauce pan to make a sauce.  Heat to melt the cheese.  Slice the braid into serving size pieces.  Pour the sauce over each serving.
