i just made these for dinner. They were excellent. I doubled the recipe & put in cream of of mushroom & cream of Celery soup. Diced up some yellow peppers, & added a can of mushrooms. My husband said it reminds him of exactly what he used to eat as a kid. I also added an extra can of tuna to soak up some of the gooeyness & they were wonderful. Thanks for sharing. :)

This recipe was okay. It was very soupy, even with undiluted soup and two cans of tuna. I think next time I make this, I would add some hot sauce to spice it up just a bit. Otherwise, the taste was good, just a little messy. We wound up eating it with a knife and fork.
