    Ingredients:

  • 2 Packets Ramen Noodles
  • 1 1/2 Cups of crushed Crackers/Stuffing mix
  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1 small onion chopped(about a cup)
  • 1 Cup of shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 Slices of American Cheese
  • 1 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon dry mustard
  • a few dashes of pepper
  • 2 Cans Tuna Drained and Flaked
  • white wine for cooking and drinking!

If you have the time to make this, it’s worth all of the effort!
Add 6 Tablespoons of butter to a frying pan, on low heat melt butter with 3/4 cup of onion. Cook for about 2 minutes until onions soften slightly. Add cracker/stuffing(I used both) to the pan and coat all of the mixture well. Splash in the pan about a shot glass size of white wine, mix and cover for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Set Aside.
Combine 1 Cup milk, 1 Cup chicken broth, 2 Tablespoons butter, dry mustard and pepper in a medium saucepan and slowly bring to hot(not boiling-milk will scald). Add the Cheddar cheese and american cheese, and 1/4 Cup of the onion. Continue to cook on low heat until cheese melts. Break up Ramen into 4 squares and add to milk/broth mixture. (throw away seasoning packets) Cook noodles until easily mixable in pan. Add Drained tuna and mix well. Pour tuna noodle mixture into medium casserole dish and sprinkle stuffing mixture on top. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes.

Note: Packet variety-any flavor
