Cheesy Tuna Mash

This is my standard comfort fare – if I’m sick or hungover or otherwise miserable, this comes out. Best eaten with a spoon, on the couch under a blanket. This makes quite a lot, but it heats up perfectly.

Instructions

  1. 1Boil the potatoes in salted water until they’re done, time depends on their size, but around 10-15 minutes.
  2. 2Start to mash them, then add cream and butter and continue mashing until smooth (or your preference).
  3. 3Stir through the tuna (including the oil if it’s olive oil, otherwise drain first) and onion and cheese and season well to taste. You might need to microwave the mix just quickly to make sure the cheese melts and everything is hot after the mashing. Enjoy!
