Tater Crust Tuna Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
I make this pie a lot because it is quick and easy to prepare (I teach during the day, so my cooking time is limited), and it's one of my husband's favorites. I like the combination of potato flakes and french-fried onions in this pastry crust...they complement the tuna/cheese filling well.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 30, 2011

"This is an easy-to-make, very tasty recipe. Substituting yellow, red, & green pepper for the olives adds color and a slightly different flavor. Great for Lenten meals!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 26, 2009

"I'd blame the olives: they are LOADED with sodium.....or if you didn't use the reduced-sodium soup, the combo of the two was too much for your other ingredients."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 27, 2008

"I made this recipe today and found it too salty. My husband liked it, but what went wrong?"
