Tuna Casserole Bake

Tuna Casserole Bake is an easy to make comfort food for home and now the outdoors too with this slightly modified version.

The ingredients for this dish are primarily canned and packaged making it very practical to take camping and especially for meals at the end of an extended trip away when fresh ingredients may not be an option.

These instructions are for a camp oven but can easily be converted to make in a Dutch oven also. Looking to mix things up a little try using a different cream soup such as cream of chicken, cream of potato, cream of celery.

Ingredients

Casserole

3 cups cooked spiral noodles

1 tablespoon butter

1 brown onion, diced

4 sticks celery, diced, optional

1 (14.5oz | 410g) can mixed vegetables

1 (6oz | 170g) can tuna, drained

1 (10oz | 285g) can condensed mushroom soup

1/3 cup milk

1 cup cheddar cheese

Topping

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/2 cup cheddar cheese

herb rub, to taste

Equipment

skillet

casserole tray

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat the camp oven (closed grill or smoker) to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  2. In a skillet melt the butter and saute the onion and celery until the onion starts to become translucent; about 5 minutes.

  3. In the casserole dish combine the spiral pasta, onion, celery, mixed vegetables, soup, milk, cheese, and drained tuna. Mix very well ensuring you get to the bottom and into the corners. Wipe any smears from the casserole dish edges.

  4. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the casserole in order, bread crumbs, cheese, and herb rub.

  5. Place the tuna casserole in the preheated camp oven. Cook for 20 minutes until the topping has melted and the casserole is bubbling. Remove, stand for 5 minutes, and serve.
