Recipe by Foxgirl
Another recipe from our handwritten family cookbook--this one is from my great aunt Olivia (nicknamed Cooter). I never get to make it, since the only person in our house who likes tuna casserole OR anything with mushrooms in it is me, but it's delicious.
- 2 bell peppers, chopped fine
- 2 onions, chopped fine
- 4 stalks celery, chopped fine
- 2 (6 ounce) cans tuna, drained
- 2 (10 1/2 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoon butter
- black pepper
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup grated cheddar cheese (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Saute peppers, onions and celery in butter until soft.
- Mix all ingredients (including what you just sauteed) well except bread crumbs.
- Pour into greased casserole dish and sprinkle bread crumbs and cheese (if using) over top.
- Cook at 350 degrees F until it starts to bubble and the bread crumbs begin to brown (about 25-35 minutes).
- Serve and enjoy!
