Tater Crust Tuna Pie

I found this recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook (one of those little ones sold by the checkstand in a grocery store). It is quick and easy to prepare but tastes like you cooked all day! I haven't served it yet to anyone who hasn't loved it. The combination of potato flakes and french fried onions compliment the tuna and cheese nicely!
