3 Ingredient Tuna Casserole

This dish contains flaky flavorful tuna, tossed with creamy mushroom soup and dashes of salt and pepper. It is topped with crispy bread crumbs, then baked until it is bubbly and golden brown.

This recipe and post is special to me and is a tribute to my Grandma on my Dad's side of the family. She passed away when I was 6 years old. But, despite not being able to grow up with her physically here, she was always with me in the kitchen.

To this day, I am still making her Tuna Casserole. My mom would make this all the time for our family growing up, I made it throughout my college years and now I am taking it with me on this journey as an adult. So, I am super excited to share this with all of you and I know that she would be too!

There are so many positives about this recipe:

  • The ingredients are inexpensive
  • There is little to no prep work is involved
  • It's so delicious between the mix of creamy and right amount of salt and pepper
  • It is packed with protein
  • It will last you all week and is great for leftovers

....Need I say more?! This dish also pairs well with saltine crackers and butter on the side, it is the perfect savory meal!
