Tuna Potato Supper

Tuna lovers will find this to be a real treat. My husband and I enjoy it as a nice change from the ordinary baked potato. Add a salad for a simple lunch or dinner. —Rosella Peters, Gull Lake, Saskatchewan

    My sister in law always made these. BUT no celery, bell pepper instead, onions, and mayo. Just enough mayo to become moist! Top with cheese and bake until cheese melts

    I put a small yellow onion in place of the green, added a half of a bell pepper, put in some garlic powder, used a different dressing, and used cheddar cheese. I ended up with way more filling than I could get back into the potato skins... I mean it was enough for 3 more potato skins. However, it tastes wonderful and my mom loved it.

    Not for me, it was pretty bland. I like the idea but I may try it again with a different meat. After trying it tuna, it would probably be my last choice of protein to use....... ham, chicken, bacon, diced up leftover steak, turkey but not tuna.

    I left out the celery but this was a nice change of pace for a baked potato topping

    I made these with leftover filling from the Salmon Quesadillas ( sour cream and a little salsa, for the salad dressing.......Very tasty!

    I loved this recipe, I think the next time I make it, I'm going to try adding corn to it, needs more color. But very delicious.

    I only had 2 cans of Tuna and a lot of potatoes *LOL* needed something for dinner for the 4 of us. This recipe fit the bill. Thank you so much. I did not have the Creamy Cucumber Salad Dressing but I did have Ranch.. OH WOW that was great. My kids loved it but the hubby well, he liked it but wasn't crazy about it. But that's fine.. The kids and I liked it very very much !! *LOL*
