Impossible Tuna Pie (GF)
Easy as pie! This pie forms its own crust with the topping. This tuna pie is fairly bland, so jazzing it up with a little hot sauce or mayonnaise will help if you find it is too bland. I exchanged 1/4 cup of the Cheddar cheese for Parmesan cheese and I think that will definitely help give the pie more flavor. I also increased the cream cheese by 1 oz, as I love that in there and wanted more of it. If you buy one of those big cans of tuna from Costco, then you can make the tuna bake and this tuna pie and you'll be having tuna all week. Not sure you want that! LOL
2, 6 oz cans tuna in water, (170 g)
3/4 cup old Cheddar cheese, (175 mL)
