Creamy Tuna Stuffed Spuds (Potatoes)
I tagged this one to make in a recipe game I play, I have not had a stuffed spud in years, only jacket potato with sour cream, cheese and chives. So to make a filling reminded me so much of when I was pregnant as this one of the few things I could eat that did not upset my tummy. I practically lived on stuffed spuds, be it tuna, baked beans, cheese etc.. So these brought back memories for me and they were really tasty too. I loved how minimal the effort was in making these, with maximum taste. I made my mornay sauce from scratch and I also added some gruyere cheese to the sauce as well as topping the potatoes with it. Serving the extra sauce on the side was a spot on idea from Pat as we poured all of it over our spuds and it was totally delicious. I did not change a thing in the recipe but to view this recipe please click here. Be sure to check out all of her fab recipes while you are there she has some really yummy ones.


8 Potatoes (large)
425g Mornay sauce (cabonara was specified) (I made mine from scratch and added some gruyere to it.)
425g Tuna, canned in water
2 Spring onions (scallions chopped)
1/2 Cup cheese, grated


1. Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan forced).

2. Wrap each potato in aluminium foil and put on a shallow tray and put in the oven and cook for 1 hour or until tender.

3. Heat carbonara sauce in a small saucepan until simmering.

4. Drain the tuna and flake and add to the carbonara sauce and then add the spring onions.

5. Make a cross in the cooked potatoes and carefully push open.

6. Spoon in the tuna sauce and then sprinkle with cheese.

7. Put potatoes on a tray and bake for a further 10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

If you have sauce left over serve in a jug for people to pour over as they make their way through the potato.

Japanese Roasted Salmon
This recipe is simple, quick and tastes exceptional, I love salmon and this is a great way to make it. It is yet another swap recipe, I love these swaps but I feel Like I make more of these than my own recipes as of late. I can not apologise as I love making and reviewing others recipes and it gives you nights of not even having to think of what to make, let alone having to measure and record every ingredient.

Since starting this blog which I have so much pleasure in doing and almost feel guilty when I do not have the time in a day to post. I have taken so much time in meal planning and what tends to be the biggest thing, which is measuring the exact amounts that I am using and taking notes so I can list accurately, the amounts to whoever is enjoying my blog the next day.

Making others recipes is a great opportunity to try something new, which I love, but they have already measured out ingredients, so I do not make my family wait for so long. and I can also split the month between my own and others.
