Tuna-Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Using canned tuna keeps this dish right in a target budget. A dollop of pickle relish on top brings out that classic tuna salad flavor. —Karen Seger, Houston, Ohio

    It was easy to make and we like it. I got the go-ahead to make it again.

    Only Mom liked these. I think I could spice it up for next time. The family ate them but they weren't clambering for more.
