I loved the cream cheese in this easy recipe. I used 2 cups of dried breadcrumbs in a round casserole dish, I should have used just 1 cup. Maybe if I put this in a 9x13" pan the 2 cups would of worked better. Next time I make this I will saute the onions with 1/2 cup of celery for more flavor. Thank you for another keeper!!
Excellent. My DH doesn't even like Tuna Casserole but we've had this one twice now and he really doesn't mind it. Never changed a thing and it tastes great!
I am a huge tuna casserole fan (call me crazy)! I made this the other night for my family and I am an even bigger tuna casserole fan now. Everyone in my family loved this - ages 1, 3, 10, 32, and 35. What a hit!
I'm always looking for new Tuna Noodle recipes and I'll be keeping this one! I did tweak it a little - sauteed green pepper, onion and garlic in a little butter, used only one can of tuna (in water) and substituted cream of celery soup for the mushroom since I don't care for cream of mushroom soup. Only other thing I did was use cornflake crumbs (I wanted to finish off the box) instead of breadcrumbs. Very moist, creamy and tasty. Thanks!
Charlotte... I use a 9 x 13 pan, for a smaller pan 1 cup of breadcrumbs would be plenty. Good idea to sauté the onions with celery, I’ll have to try that next time!
The casserole was easy to make and I liked the taste better than a regular tuna casserole. I put crushed potato chips on top instead of the bread crumbs and my 4 year old son loved that! It is a recipe I will continue to use.
Really easy. What I did was used 1 can of tuna, 1/2 onion (sauteed first for kids sake) and used 1 cup breadcrumbs. Quite rich and filling.
I was never a real fan of tuna, but this meal changed my mind! I made this for my boyfriend expecting to have something else for dinner. Lets just said WE both ended up eating it for dinner. I used tuna in water, cream of celery soup (lowfat), garlic and cornflake crumbs as subsitutions. I made it in round casserole dish and just 1 cup of crumbs was perfect. Thank you!
I think this old standby is making a comeback! But I think the secrets to this specific recipe are the %u201Ccream of%u201D soups and the bread crumb topping. You can really spice up an already delicious bread crumb topping by adding some of your favorite hot sauce to the melted butter. You can also add some of your favorite grated cheese into the bread crumb mixture, once it is cooled.
My hubby and I are NOT tuna fans, but we happened to have all the ingredients at hand. It was fantastic!! Will definitely have this again.
