Mama's Tuna Casserole

This was one of those 1950's recipes that homemakers used when "Payday is not till Friday." Most of the ingredients were already in the pantry. I can't say we liked it very much, but at least we didn't have it too very often. I'm posting it mainly for its heirloom value, and perhaps for a budget recipes cookbook. I will say my Dad like this, but then he always said he loved my mother's cooking.

How to Make Mama's Tuna Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the tuna, soup, milk, and vegetables. Add salt and pepper. Carefully stir in the cooked egg noodles, and turn the entire mixture into a 2-quart greased casserole dish. Top with the buttered bread cubes and cheese, if desired.
  2. Bake at 350°F for about 25 minutes, until hot and bubbly and the bread topping is browned.
  3. When I make this at home now, I use green spinach noodles, and also add 1-2 cups chopped broccoli or frozen peas.
