Potato Tuna Cassrole

YES, this one I DID make! (Dawn)
With our food supply widdling down to the bare basics I have been trying to mix things up a bit and using stuff I wouldn't regularly put together at all.

3 T butter
1/2 c onions, cut how ever you like
3 T flour
1 t salt
1 t pepper
2 c milk
10 oz tuna, drained
4 c diced bite size potatoes, skin on
1 garlic clove, minced
Handful or so of cheese
Two or Three slices of crumbled up bacon

Heat butter in saucepan. Saute onions and garlic about 5 minutes. Then blend in the flour and milk with a whisk, add salt, pepper and stir over medium heat until thickened. Stir in drained tuna. Put diced potatoes in greased 2 qt casserole dish and stir in tuna mixture. Cover and bake at 350 for 1 hr. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese and bacon bits (no, trust me!). Return to oven and cook for another 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
I'm guesstimating at the times for the oven. I made mine in my NuWave. Because bacon has such a strong flavor, you can't even taste the tuna. I almost convinced the boy he liked it. The girl was on the fence. Jerry and I liked it, though.

I'd advise you to like quadruple the recipe. This amount fed my family ... with no left overs.
