Tuna Dip


In my experience the Swiss do it best: crunchy, fluffy, cob bread dipped in a warm, creamy dip. The ultimate comfort food! This tuna dip is our family’s take on what the Swiss do so well.

I must confess, though. We came about this recipe by mistake. I had followed the recipe for regular Tuna Mornay from my grandma’s recipe book. We all thought it was tasty, but after eating half a serving we found the intensity of the Mornay a little over-powering. Then, in a moment of brilliance, I decided to dip a piece of toast into what was left of my dinner.

This Tuna Mornay turned Tuna Dip has a golden layer of breadcrumbs on the top making it the ultimate comfort food.

Delicious! The crunch and simple flavours of my toast served as a beautiful counter-balance to the strong flavours of our Tuna Mornay. The Tuna Mornay Dip was born!

This Tuna Mornay Dip is simple to prepare, yields a generous serving and gives a tasty seafood twist to the traditional warm dip. Serve with a crusty loaf of oven-warmed bread.

Simply tear off sections, dip into the Tuna Mornay and enjoy! Would go down nicely with some friends and a beer, whenever some comfort food is in order.
