Tuna Pie

Recently it has come to my attention that there is a fast food item out there called Tuna Pie. It is supposedly an ethnic food. What ethnicity you might ask? Why, midwestern American my friends! I started thinking about it and the more I pondered the concept of Tuna Pie the more delicious it sounded. I imagined a tuna pot pie, or a tuna Hotpocket type of thing. I decided to create my own Tuna Pie recipe, and folks, it was absolutely scrumptious.



I decided to make a basic tuna noodle casserole type of thing and just simply put it in a pie crust. It is ethnic food, pure and simple. It comes from the culture I grew up in and I'm proud of it. For that authentic 70's taste, I made sure to use mostly canned ingredients; one can of Campbell's Cream of Potato soup, one can of carrots and peas, egg noodles, all mixed together in a frozen pie crust. It's the kind of thing you could throw together in the post apocalypse.



For you health conscious organic minded folks out there, you could use a dolphin friendly tuna, buy fresh vegetables from your local farmers market, and bake your own pie crust using all the expensive fancy ingredients that are important to you. I loved my tuna pie, though I think a little sauteed onion and garlic thrown in would have piqued the flavor a bit. Maybe a few aromatics. Fresh sage perhaps?

The best part is yet to come. I can't wait for tomorrow, and the promise of leftover tuna pie. MMMMMMM! Heaven!

That sounds yummy. Except the Sage. That is too woodsy tasting and would not compliment the fish. Save that for the Turkey or Chicken.

I bet some fresh Dill Sprigs or Lemmon Zest would brighten up the dish!

With or without, I bet it tasted delicious!

It was sooooo good. And yeah, totally filling. I could barely finish the second piece I took!

WOW. So many typos. I can't believe the way I spelled LEMON? LOL

Mmm, would love to make individual tuna pies to freeze and then reheat in a pinch. Like a Tuna Empanada.

How did you know? I wasn't telling anyone. Oh and the Filet O' Fish at McDonald's is some of my favorite food ever. I get it with fries and a shamrock shake, perfect Irish fare from an establishment with a mick in it'sname.

How did he know what? That you're racist, fat, American, or a bastard? Or are you ugly or stupid?
