This recipe is quick and delicious. i made it one day, and my son and hubby ate it all up, and then my hubby asked if i could make it the next day as well. this is definately worth the (little) effort that's put into it.

    DO NOT USE REGULAR SALT IN PLACE OF SEASONING SALT. It is not good. Next time I will spring for some actual seasoning salt because this dish tasted pretty good otherwise.

    This is very delicious and the kids love it. However, the recipe listed here is a bit wrong... The original recipe from Minute Rice calls for 1 can of tuna 6 1/2- 7 oz....which is perhaps what the original author meant.

    What a delicious surprise! As one who is skeptical of hot canned tuna, this really won me over. The only trouble I had was deciphering the measurements which definitely seemed off. I ended up using three cans of tuna, 3 eggs, and 4T milk. That filled one muffin tin (a dozen medium-sized cups). I had to cook it for almost 30 minutes to get it lightly browned. I would use a few less olives and little more cheese next time. The butter sauce really makes this dish. I will definitely make this again when I have leftover rice.
