  1. This was delicious! It reminded me of a jazzed up version of my Mom's "creamed tuna on toast", a breakfast staple when I was growing up. I used fresh onions, sautéed in butter, instead of frozen and changed the soup to cream of mushroom (personal preference). This goes into my hard copy cookbook and my regular rotation. Thank you Lorac, for the great recipe and the memories.
  2. We really liked this and will definitely make it again! I used 2 5 oz cans of tuna, 3/4 can milk, 2 15 oz cans of mixed vegetables that included potatoes, so I left out the chopped, cooked potato. I used Kroger brand baking mix. I followed the baking mix's directions for cooking it, which was 400 degrees for 30 minutes. I had an accident with my dish after getting it all together which resulted in me transfering the mixture into another dish. I had to mix the crust topping right into the potpie mixture to prevent uneven cooking, but it was great anyways! The entire thing came out a thick consistency with a crusty top that had vegetables mixed into it. Next time I hope to make it with refrigerated biscuits as directed, but I would make it again my accidental way too! Thanks for a great meal, I never thought to make a tuna potpie. :)
  3. Fast and cheap, everybusy mom's delight. I used a whole can of milk, I liked the smoother consistancy. Great!
  4. Wow, very simple and very good! I didn't have any biscuits or even bisquick (which I normally use to make the crust) so I just left it without a crust. It was still very good and I got away with raising the protein content by adding 1.5 cans of tuna. Thanks!
  5. This was delicious! The whole casserole disappeared, no leftovers. Quite simple to make also. Instead of mixed vegetables I used peas and carrots. Thank you Lorac for a wonderful recipe which has made its way into my permenant cookbook in Mastercook ; )
