Great recipe I got from my stepmother. Potatoes and tuna that can be made like a twice baked potato, or a casserole.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Wrap potatoes in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until tender when pierced with a fork, about 1 hour.

  • Cool potatoes until easily handled; cut in half. Scoop the potato flesh into a large bowl, leaving the shells intact. Mix potato with tuna, mayonnaise, and green onions. Spoon mixture back into shells. Press shredded Cheddar cheese on top of each.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Cook's Note:

If you prefer, discard the skins, and bake the potato mixture in a baking dish.

My husband has been talking fondly of this dish for years so I finally researched AR and fortunately found this recipe. After reading the other reviews I decided to use some of the other cook's advise with great success. I baked the potatoes on the oven rack after slathering with EVOO and kosher salt (lightly). The tuna mixture was seasoned with 2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning 1/3 cp maoy and 1/3 cp sour cream along with the scallion onions. My husband was thrilled and announced "now this is comfort food!". Thank you Nascargirl and your thoughtful stepmom! Read More

This is sort of like a tuna casserole in potato form. Was a big hit with kids they didn't even notice there was fish. However it didn't go over well with me. The texture was a little funny. Read More

It was good but if you cut the amount of mayo in half and add sour cream it's even better. Read More

If you are tired of tuna sandwiches or tuna caserole this is a great change for canned tuna. I used a little bit more mayo I think it depends on the size of the potatoes and added Tony Chazery's for some spice. Very good. Read More

This recipe was just okay. It was a little dry and I even used half mayo half sour cream. Next time I am thinking of adding butter and more salt to the mixture. I also just nuked the potatoes then finished them in the oven. Something I will try again. Read More

We ate these for lunch and they were great. I used 6 potatoes since some of mine were smallish. I added 1 tsp. of yellow curry to the mix and used fat free miricle whip instead of mayo. I also used mozzerella instead of cheddar since I thought it would go better with the curry. I think these would have been a tiny bit on the boring side if I hadn't of added the curry but still would have been pretty good. Read More

instead of baking these for an hour i nuked them 5 mins flipped them and nuked them another 5 mins. after i scooped out the flesh (to which i added garlic powder and celery salt)i placed them flesh side down and rubbed with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt. i baked them directly on the oven rack with a baking sheet on the rack beneath it to catch any potato ooze.after much contemplation i served with garlic toast topped with sauteed mushrooms in garlic(also from this site). thanks for a different approach to using inexpensive tuna.
