Olympic Gold Medal Comfort Food...Foodie Friday...

I am freezing just watching all these amazing Olympic skiers fly down those snowy Canadian mountains. They are all such talented athletes and I applaud each and every one. They definitely eat their Wheaties. I wanted a big dish of comfort food to warm me up while watching TV this week. I found this recipe on the back of a box of Kroger elbow macaroni and thought I would be as brave as those Olympian athletes and take a chance on this recipe. I was able to put this together in record breaking time so it is certainly worthy of a GOLD medal.

Hot Tuna Salad

1 cup elbow macaroni, uncooked
1 can tuna (6 1/8 oz) drained
2 hard cooked eggs, chopped (I personally did not use the eggs)
4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups celery, sliced diagonally
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Prepare macaroni according to package directions; drain.
toss together with remaining ingredients and place in a 2-quart dish.
Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes.
Serve hot.
Refrigerate any leftovers.
Makes 3 to 4 servings.

  5. I've never had a hot tuna sandwich. It sounds delicious.

  6. Sounds delicious! I have made tuna casserole before, but this recipehas the eggs and mayo in it, which really does turn it into tuna salad.

  7. Years and years ago, I think I had this recipe or one similar. It sounds really good for a cold winter night. That wonderful bread would go well with it... but there is not much of it left now. Delicious!

  8. Great comfort food, Joyce. Sounds great! Will see you soon!
