Tuna casserole is a staple on dinner tables across the United States. Inexpensive and fairly easy to make, it appeals to a wide swath of diners. ThisWeek staffers answer the question: When’s the last time you had tuna casserole?
Sarah Sole: Possibly never.
Scott Hummel: I make it frequently, like once a month at least.
Dennis Laycock: Probably high school. It was the melted Kraft singles on top that really took it to the next level.
Nate Ellis: When I was still living with mom and dad. It was a frequent low-budget dinner that I didn't mind, but my better half doesn't like tuna.
Abby Armbuster: I made some about a month ago. Tuna-noodle casserole is a great comfort food that also saves well for lunch the next day.
Neil Thompson: Couldn't tell you.
Lee Cochran: In 1992. I used to eat different tuna dishes all the time before becoming very tired – as in "sick" – of them. My wife made it a few years later, right after we moved to Columbus, and when I came home from work, I entered the house, took a whiff and left the house until she got rid of it, the smell and all the evidence of ever making it. The smell of cooked tuna or tuna out of the can makes me gag now.
Andrew King: I'm pretty anti-casserole, and tuna is the worst casserole.
