"This tangy tuna bake is well received at potluck suppers," relates Ellen Proctor of Great Barrington, Massachusetts. "I've made it with light sour cream and reduced-fat mayonnaise with equally good results. At home, I serve it with a salad and rolls for a quick dinner."
Here's a jazzed-up version of Mom's tuna casserole that's sure to be comfort food for the whole family! Jan Heshelman of Bloomfield, Indiana adds pizzazz to the traditional dish with mustard, sour cream, thyme and zucchini. "I found this recipe in a magazine," says Jan. "It is one of the few dishes with zucchini that my husband will eat."
"We live on Kodiak Island off the coast of Alaska, and salmon is one of our favorite foods," writes Becky Applebee of Chiniak, Alaska. "This elegant dish was the star attraction at the open house we hosted at my husband's business."
Rosalie Mellott says she enjoys quick-and-easy recipes. "Being a farm wife, I don't have much time to prepare meals," she writes from Oakland, Maryland. "That's why I keep this mix for coating fish on hand."
"What could be easier than dressing up a boxed macaroni and cheese mix with tuna and canned soup?" asks Stephani Martin of Macomb, Michigan. "This comforting casserole is a snap to fix, and my two boys gobble it up. You can vary the soup and veggies to suit your family's tastes."
I make these tempting little tarts frequently for parties. They disappear at an astonishing speed, so I usually double or triple the recipe. The salmon-cream cheese filling and flaky crust will melt in your mouth.
