This is something my dad made growing up as a family of 6 on a budget. I still eat it as an adult. Might not be something everyone loves but it’s cheap. 1 can of cream of mushroom, can of tuna, splash of milk(optional), and white bread. Cream of tuna over toast. Less than $3 for a family of 4 if the items are bought at Walmart.

Creamy Tuna on Toast Budget Delight


  • 1 can (10.5 oz) cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can (5 oz) tuna in water, drained
  • 1/4 cup milk (optional, for a creamier texture)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 loaf of white bread


  1. Prepare the Creamy Tuna Mixture:
    • In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the cream of mushroom soup and drained tuna.
    • If desired, add a splash of milk to achieve a creamier consistency.
    • Heat the mixture over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until it’s well combined and heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Toast the Bread:
    • While the creamy tuna mixture is heating, toast slices of white bread to your liking. You can use a toaster, oven, or stovetop to achieve a golden brown texture.
  3. Serve:
    • Once the creamy tuna mixture is hot and well-blended, spoon it generously over the toasted white bread.
  4. Optional Garnishes:
    • Enhance the dish with additional budget-friendly toppings such as chopped parsley, a sprinkle of grated cheese, or a dash of paprika for color and flavor.
  5. Enjoy:
    • Serve the Creamy Tuna on Toast immediately, and savor the nostalgic flavors of this budget-friendly family dish.


  • This recipe is easily customizable. Feel free to add diced vegetables like peas or mushrooms to the creamy tuna mixture for added nutrition and flavor.
  • Experiment with different types of bread, such as whole wheat or multigrain, to suit your preferences.
  • For a crunchy twist, top the creamy tuna with crushed crackers or breadcrumbs before serving.
