I have never made or even eaten tuna casserole before tonight! I looked up the recipe out of necessity (didn't grocery shop when I should have and I had tuna to work with). I modified this recipe a bit. I added chopped feozen spinach because I saw it in another recipe and I love spinach. I also added grated cheddar cheese because I noticed a commenter who said she sprinkled cheese on top, but I mixed it in with the casserole so the bread crumbs would still be on top. Because I usually don't have condensed soups on hand, I made cream of celery feom scratch with fresh celery, and I'm sure that makes the casserole even better. I was out of mustard powder, so I tried mixing in a bit of turmeric in its place. And I halved the curry powder only because curry is such a strong flavor for me. And I omitted the eggs (I was out, but I don't think I'd include them anyway). The only thing I'll do differently next time is sautee the onions before adding them to the mix so that they don't stand out so much in the finished product. My kids enjoyed it (even my very, very picky six-year-old), so I'll probably double everything except the breadcrumb topping next time, because there was room to make it deeper in my 9×13. First attempt at tuna casserole was a hit!
