Mom's Tuna Quiche

JacQue Lawson


My mom used to make this when I was a kid. Love the flavor and it is SO quick and EASY! Serve with salad, fruit and muffins for brunch or lunch or
bring it to a pot luck.
Another variation I do is with chicken chunks, spinach, mushrooms, scallions and cheddar cheese. I usually make one of each since the pie crusts come in packages of two. Yummy (and pretty healthy) comfort food!

How to Make Mom's Tuna Quiche


  • 1Wash and chop mushrooms or use pre-sliced. Sautee in butter until moisture is removed.
  • 2While mushrooms are cooking, chop scallions, grate cheese and drain tuna
  • 3Place one (uncooked) pie crust in a deep-dish pie plate. Top with tuna, cheese, sautéed mushrooms and scallions.
  • 4Beat together eggs, milk and seasonings and pour on top of tuna mixture. (You can add a sprinkle more of cheese on top if you like.) Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. You can protect the crust edges with foil, but I have found that I don't need to. Let cool 10 minutes before cutting.
