Tuna Puff Recipe

Tuna puff

The ingredients and procedure for making tuna puff resembles bread and butter pudding, albeit less custardy and certainly not sweet. This is a delicious alternative to a simple tuna sandwich, though not as quick to prepare. And it looks quite different from a sandwich. The end result is crusty and moist. Unfortunately the pictures don't do it justice.

Note: the recipe suggests draining the tuna. I used tuna in oil, didn’t drain it and skipped the butter. 

Tuna puff

2 small cans tuna
½ cup milk
2 tablespoon melted butter or margarine (skip if using undrained tuna in oil)
2 eggs, separated
3 tablespoons lemon juice
¼ onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
4 slices bread, torn into pieces

  1. Mix tuna, milk, butter, egg yolks, lemon juice, onion, salt and pepper
  2. Add bread and mix well
  3. Beat egg whites until stiff, fold into tuna mixture.
  4. Pour into greased two-quart casserole; sprinkle with paprika. Bake uncovered at 350°F / 175°C for one hour.

  1. That looks SO good... beautiful color and I think that the crusty top would be the best part! Next time I want to make a tuna sandwich, I should try this! Thanks :)
