“Feel free to add your favorite seasonings such as Lawry's. This isn't the exact recipe but way back when I was a kid my mother who made a lovely tuna casserole [right.. 3 bottles of ketchup spaghetti queen] and my Grandfather had one heck of a fight over the Tuna Casserole or the Hamburger Gravy. Grandfather ate his Hamburger Gravy over saltines that night and Mom MADE me eat the tuna. Didn't help her mood I cried and wanted the Gravy too.”
