Prep: 25 mins

Bake: 35 mins

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 6 ounces mushrooms, chopped
  • 4 5 ounce cans  tuna, drained
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 6 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees . In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until theyve released and absorbed most of their juices, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the tuna and mayonnaise, breaking up the tuna. Stir in the onion mushroom mixture, then stir in two-thirds of the cheese.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, flour and butter; stir into the tuna mixture. Transfer to a 10-inch deep-dish pie pan and bake until browned, about 35 minutes. Top with the remaining cheese and broil until the cheese has melted.
  • Wrap the baked pie in foil and freeze. To serve, thaw in the refrigerator, then bake in a 350 degrees oven for 20 minutes or until warmed through.
