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


  1. Wash and chop mushrooms or use pre-sliced. Sautee in butter until moisture is removed.
  2. While mushrooms are cooking, chop scallions, grate cheese and drain tuna
  3. Place one (uncooked) pie crust in a deep-dish pie plate. Top with tuna, cheese, sautéed mushrooms and scallions.
  4. Beat 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.
