Tuna-Potato Casserole (recipe)

Tuna Potato Casserole

I expanded this one dish meal from a recipe in one of those little checkout aisle booklets that my mom has held on to from the 70′s :)

We served it with a crisp vegetable salad on the side. I think it’s a pretty flexible recipe and if there are chopped vegetables you want to use up and throw into the layers you should totally do that, I know I will :D

7 oz can tuna, drained and flaked
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt

Tuna-Potato Casserole

METHOD:

1. Put potato slices, tuna and onion slices in alternate layers in a greased casserole dish ending with a layer of potatoes. (Tip: before starting a new potato layer sprinkle the dish with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, also if using additional vegetables place those in a separate layer ;) )

    Hi,

    I found your Tuna-Potato Casserole very enticing…but tell me please …do i need to boil the potatoes first before layering in the dish? Or just slice potatoes raw without pre-boiling?

    Thank you and looking forward to your reply.

      Dear Sharj, you don’t need to boil the potatoes beforehand :)

    This is so similar to a dish that was a staple in my childhood. There were no onions and we used a can of cream of mushroom soup instead of evaporated milk. No need to add extra salt. Baked at 350 degrees and topped with crunched potato chips for the last 10-15 minutes. I’m going to make some today with the last of our potatoes from the garden. Yum. Thanks!
