Tuna loaf is one of those friendly recipes that are simple, homey and done with what you have laying around. Tuna loaf is also very good food, and economical to boot. This Tuna Loaf recipe is from an old friend, Becky Ballantine. It can also be made with canned salmon, or any leftover cooked fish.

Dribble some White Cheese Sauce over a couple slices of Tuna Loaf, garnish with a dash of paprika, a couple slices of lemon and a bit of parsely. Serve with a green salad and a dry white wine. Simple and excellent.
