"My mom used to make this as I was growing up. I recently found it and have put it into our weekly rotation. You can also substitute a can of chicken. I put it serves 4 because our family always goes back for seconds."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Combine the chopped eggs, spinach, onion powder, tuna, cream of mushroom soup, and sour cream in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Mix well. Scatter bread pieces over tuna mix; drizzle with melted butter.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until bread is toasted and casserole is hot, about 30 to 35 minutes.
