An old family favorite--- comfort food at it's finest! This one includes potato chips as well as hard-boiled eggs. Just like mom used to make. Mom used to reheat leftovers in a frypan with butter the next day--- yum!! P.S. Sometimes I sprinkle mine with grated Parmesan cheese, at the table.

Yep, Becky, it's a winner! I mixed all ingredients together and layered the crumbled potatoes chips between and on top of the mixture. What a comforting meal! Loved it; pls tell your Mom--THX! Made for Casserole Challenge in Cooking Photos.

I really enjoyed this recipe! I thought the vinegar flavored chips was a great way to flavor the tuna. I loved the eggs in the dish. I especially liked it right when I stirred it up (so creamy and good with the eggs). This is a great comfort dish! Roxygirl
