About this recipe: An incredibly easy dish, which is a doddle to make. Shortcrust pastry cases are baked with tuna, tomatoes and Gruyere in an egg custard. Serve hot or cold, for a starter or main course. It also does well in packed lunches.

Very nice and easy to make. Tastes like a tuna melt, so was liked by everyone. Good to eat hot or cold. - 16 Aug 2015
