Tuna Rolls


*One of my favorite meals (my mom’s recipe). This recipe uses mostly ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. Easy and yummy!

Bread:
2 c. flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. shortening
3/4 c. milk

Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in large bowl. Cut shortening into flour mixture. Stir in milk until dough sticks together. Knead 10 times and roll out into rectangle shape.

Filling:
1 can tuna
1 egg
1 tsp. mustard
diced green pepper
chopped onion
grated cheese

Mix all ingredients together and spread onto rolled-out dough. Roll dough and filling together like a jelly roll. Slice into 12 pieces. Place on sheet and bake at 400◦ for 10-12 minutes.

Sauce:
4 Tbsp. margarine
4 Tbsp. flour
2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. salt
cooked mixed vegetables

Melt margarine in saucepan. Stir in flour. Gradually stir in milk with wire whisk. Add salt. Stir until thick over medium heat. Remove from heat and add cooked vegetables. Serve sauce over tuna rolls.
