Tried ’n’ True: Grandmother Rosa’s Tuna Crunch Casserole

This recipe comes from my Grandmother Rosa. She’s mom’s mother. It seems like she liked tuna. I do, too. My brothers and sisters didn’t. So when I visited her by myself, she made this. The recipe card is all yellow now and kind of hard to read — but I know it by heart. I don’t have many of her recipes. Sure do enjoy the ones I have.

Tuna Crunch Casserole

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1⁄3 cup milk

1 can (7 ounces) tuna, drained and flaked

2 hard-cooked eggs, sliced

1 cup cooked peas

1⁄2 cup slightly crumbled potato chips or one of the following, Chow-mein noodles or canned fried onions.

• Crumbled chips or chow-mein noodles or fried onions (your choice) and set aside.

• Blend soup and milk.

• Stir in tuna, eggs and peas.

• Put into a 1 quart casserole dish.

• Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

• Then sprinkle crumbled chips on top and bake 5 minutes longer.
