Cheesy Tuna Casserole with Crumbled Potato Chips

What can I say about Tuna Casserole? It is rich and delicious, and if you grew up with it like me, it prompts a feeling of comfort. Feel free to omit the eggs or cheese if you prefer, but I highly suggest taking the time to saute the fresh vegetables as they add a nice crunch and flavor. Enjoy!

Cheesy Tuna Casserole with Crumbled Potato Chips
Makes about 8 servings

  • 4 cups cooked egg noodles (cook until al dente)
  • 1 six ounce pouch Tuna
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 4 oz. diced Velveeta 
  • salt & pepper to taste (I used roughly half a teaspoon of Foxpoint which has many different seasonings)
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • splash of milk (optional)
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • dab of butter for cooking onion & celery
  • shredded cheddar for garnish
  • crumbled potato chips for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 375-f degrees.

2. In a large mixing bowl combine the cooked noodles, tuna, eggs, Velveeta, soups and a splash of milk. Set aside.

3. In a small saute pan combine the diced onion, celery and a bit of butter and saute for 3-4 minutes until slightly translucent. Do not brown. Add to the noodle mixture.

4. Pour noodle mixture into a large greased baking dish. Top with a handful of shredded cheddar. Then top with crumbled potato chips, as many as you prefer. Bake about 30 minutes, covering half way through so the chips don't burn.

Recipe by me


  1. My husband just had me find a classic tuna noodle casserole recipe to make for him. We loved it. I had forgotten how good it can taste. THIS recipe sounds even better. Can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing. :)

    1. Looking for the classic. No cheese or noodles right?

    2. Throw a 1/3 cup of Burgundy in your saute and bring it down 'til the alcohol is gone, like super yum!

  2. I love tuna and noodle casseroles, but have never added velveeta. I will do that the next time! I'm happy you stopped by my blog and I will like following you now to see what's next! Thanks for this recipe!

  3. My grandma made tuna casserole with potato chips. As she got older, the combinations got crazier....think BBQ flavored chips!

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!
