Comforting Tuna Casserole
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min.
A friend of mine gave me this recipe years and years ago, minus the pimiento and chives, and uses cornflake crumbs melted in butter instead of bread crumbs! This is my husbands favorite recipe, the kids loved it too... My adult daughter now makes this same recipe for her family!
Love this casserole! May add extra tuna next time. Overall, yum yum!!!
Family loves this casserole!
I chose to double this and am glad I did. The leftovers were great. As other reviewers suggested I also added garlic salt and extra Muenster cheese.
Made this last night and it was excellent. Used a couple extra slices of Munster cheese. Delicious!!!
This tuna casserole is a lot like the one my grandma use to make. I had never heard of or used muenster cheese, so I was just going to leave it out. However, I saw a small block of it at the grocery store for $4 and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. I graded it up and mixed it into the casserole. I also added mushrooms and peas. I made the sauce as suggested but used cream cheese with chives. I decided to top my casserole with crushed ritz crackers and Parmesan cheese. I also trippled this recipe because I needed to serve 6. Very good and my new go to tuna casserole recipe.
This is a very tasty old fashion tuna recipe. I agree it needs more salt. I also added a little parmesan cheese to the sauce. Instead of bread crumbs I sprinkled a little grated cheddar cheese on top, after all I am from Wi. add cheese to everything. I definitely will make it again.
I doubled the recipe, but had to add 2 cups of liquid to the roux to make it a sauce. Wonder if a "1" was forgotten before the "3/4 cup" of milk? Added peas and mushrooms, definitely used the chives and roasted pimentos. Anything to add some more flavor to a cassarole is good!
This was a Friday night staple for many years when my kids were growing up. Pimentos were a luxury so were left out but I added a can of peas just before baking. Ritz crackers were a treat but made it sooooo good.
It is really good with Ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs.
