My family asks for this dish at least once a month. Even people that don't care for tuna love it!! It's easy to make and tastes even better the next day. I hope you enjoy!

Wow, this is not your ordinary tuna casserole recipe. The traditional casserole is brought to a whole new level in this recipe (almost a little fancy). From the albacore tuna to the Swiss cheese, the flavor is a bit richer in this casserole. We loved the texture from big chunks of mushrooms. Sweet peas balance out the savoriness of this creamy casserole. Boiled eggs are an unusual addition, but you don't taste them (just a little protein boost). French fried onions are the crowning glory on top. Not only do they add flavor but make for a pretty presentation. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make My Swiss Cheese Tuna Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice the mushrooms and dice the onions. Sauté in butter over medium heat.
  2. Add Worcestershire sauce. I use quite a bit.
  3. Sauté stirring frequently until done.
  4. While the mushrooms and onions are cooking, boil the eggs and prepare the noodles as directed. Cook only to al dente firmness so they don't become mushy in the oven.
  5. When mushrooms and onions are done, add tuna and favorite seasonings. Cook on low for a couple of minutes stirring frequently. In the same pan that you sauteed the mushrooms and onions in, add the soup and milk. Stir over low heat until smooth.
  6. Drain noodles and return to pot. Add tuna mixture and coat the noodles well. Put eggs into an egg slicer. Cut lengthwise. Then turn again and cut. Add to noodles.
  7. After the eggs are stirred in, add peas. Now is a good time to add more seasoning. Stir to blend ingredients.
  8. Transfer mixture to a 9x13 baking dish.
  9. Top with Swiss cheese slices.
  10. Tightly cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 to 45 minutes, or until bubbly and cheese is melted.
  11. Remove foil and cover with French fried onions. Return to oven for a few minutes until the onions are browned (about 10 minutes).
  12. Make sure you let it cool for a while. It will be lava hot!! I used to make this with Colby jack cheese and it's really good that way too!
