The cornflakes make a great topping.

I just made this this evening. I read the reviews first and I added cheese and a bread crumb topping. I also added more seasoning

This was a really good tuna casserole recipe. I used a little extra salt and pepper because of the comments about blandness, and I found it very tasty. I ended up buying 2 Bumble Bee Premium Albacore Tuna in Water pouches (2.5 oz each). I found this was the best solution to the change in tuna can sizes. This was the first time I had tried the pouches and I wasn't sure about the drained weight since it wasn't marked on the package. As it turns out, there was no excess water to drain off so I used 5 oz in the casserole. For anyone who is interested, the pouches are a little more expensive at $1.89 each at Kroger.

Easy enough to make. I did add a little garlic powder and used seasoned salt instead of table salt because it looked like it could be bland with just salt and pepper. I also mixed the corn flake crumbs with a tbsp of melted butter.

A friend made this for me when I was sick. It was good, but too bland.

It was to bland, the tuna got lost.

I've made this several times - DS loves it! I used toasted seasoned bread crumbs instead of crushed cornflakes for the topping.
