Tuna Casserole with Chips!

An Old Favorite regains new found love.

Growing up as a child, my mom used to prepare a tuna casserole that was one of my favorites to see at the dinner table. Chunky white tuna, crunchy green peas, a rich cream sauce and my favorite, fresh regular potato chips. Sounds a little strange I know but when you try it you’ll know what I mean. The texture combined with the flavors make this classic a must have in the family cookbook.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Can Mushroom Soup
  • 1/2 cup of Milk
  • 1 8 oz Can of Chunk White Tuna
  • 1 Cup Crushed Potato Chips
  • 1 Cup of Peas

 

Instructions:

Heat oven to 350 Degrees.  Mix above ingredients in greased casserole in the order listed. Top with 1/4 cup of crushed Potatoe Chips.  Bake 25-30 minutes.

As you can tell by the simplistic recipe and ingredients, this tuna casserole is very economical and can easily feed a crowd. This is a great potluck dish or can even be used in a pinch when you are at the end of your grocery cycle.

A couple of tips:

  • I find frozen peas work best unless you have access to garden peas(stay away from canned peas)
  • For the potato chips, I like to use ruffles (something thick for more texture)
  •  A great addition to this recipe is a short pasta of your choice. (i tend to use macaroni, penne, rotini or fusilli)

Drink recommendation:

To top of this classic, a large glass of milk is a great companion.

Did you use egg noodles in the picture? or a short pasta? Do you mix cooked noodles in then bake?

Hi Sue, Yes I used egg noodles and I did cook them to al dente before putting them in the casserole dish.
