Baked Potatoes and Tuna Casserole

This dish isn't very expensive and very easy to make. I made it for my husband one time and he loved it!  If you want to go ahead and play with the ingredients a bit, by all means go ahead.  Make it your own!


  • 7 large potatoes, sliced with or without the skin left on
  • 4 5-oz cans of tuna
  • 2 onions, sliced or diced
  • 2 cans of cream of celery
  • 2 cups of milk
  • salt and pepper
  • cheese (optional) - either several slices of white american or 2 bags of any shredded kind


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9x13 pan.
  3. Place a layer of the potatoes at the bottom of the pan, overlapping them to leave no gaps in between them. (Make sure to save enough to make another layer)
  4. Using 2 of the cans of tuna, try to spread the tuna evenly over the potatoes.
  5. Now, using the onions slices, make a layer over the tuna.
  6. Add some salt and pepper on top of the layer.
  7. Make another layer of tuna with the last two cans.
  8. Cover with the last of the potatoes.
  9. In a separate bowl, thoroughly mix the 2 cans of cream of celery and the 2 cups of milk.
  10. Pour the soup over top of all of the potatoes.
  11. Cover tightly.
  12. Place in oven for an hour.
  13. Reduce the oven temperature to 350.
  14. Bake for 15 min to allow the sauce to thicken.
  15. If you are putting cheese onto the dish pull it out after 10 min to cover it completely with  cheese and then place back into the oven for the last 5 min.

So far we have tried white american cheese and shredded cheddar.  The cheddar was pretty good, but we really liked the white american.

Thanks. :) I don't care for it too much, but the rest of my family loves it. I do like that it is very simple; we made it for dinner twice now in the last 2 weeks.
