5 Things To Do With A Can Of Tuna


I'm not too high-falutin' to eat canned tuna and am always looking for a way to incorporate inexpensive items into my meal planning (read: meal scrambling).


Check out bon appetit's blog post that offers ideas for this pantry staple.


Have you any tuna recipe ideas to share?

  1. When I first read your title, "5 Things to do with a Can of Tuna" I thought you literally meant things to do with the CAN! Believe it or not, tuna cans are great to re-use! I've used them for cookie, biscuit, and pastry cutters; and even egg poachers! But then, I used to use orange juice cans for hair rollers (WAY back..) As for the actual tuna...we love this recipe: Food TV's Ellie Krieger - Nicoise Salad Budget Friendly

  2. I haven't clicked through yet, but my favorite is to put it on pasta with capers, tomatoes, garlic, parsley.

  4. When I was in college in nineteen-forgotten I used to make tuna casserole by combining a package of Kraft Mac 'n' Cheese mix, bag of frozen peas, and a can of tuna. If I was feeling fancy, I'd add breadcrumbs to the top before I baked it. It was a great meal at the end of the month when funds were running low.

  5. Just found your blog through another one, on a post about the $30 food challenge. I have to say, I love the tuna salad in Rachael Ray's 365 cookbook. It doesn't have mayo in it, instead it's got olive oil and lemon juice. Sometimes I mix it up a bit, but I basically use tuna, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, onion, sun dried tomatoes, and olives. Sometimes I put in artichoke hearts and capers, but it just depends on if I have them. Her recipe has it in a sandwich but I sometimes just eat it with a fork and a side of a baguette.

  6. AWESOME blog. hilarity! now that i actually make a wage of some sort, i've upped my canned tuna purchasing from starkist in water to now choosing to spend the extra $1 on italian tonno in oil. so much tastier and you seriously can eat it straight from the can (or on arugua/lettuce or w/ some capers or green olives on some crackers OR thrown on some pasta w/ some hot pepper. love myself some tonno.
