Tuna and Biscuits Casserole

I don't know what it is about tuna recipes, but I just can't ever seem to get them to turn out how I want them to. Which is unfortunate, because I do enjoy tuna. This recipe would be amazingly good as long as you follow the changes that I made, because I followed the orginal recipe, which I found in one of my grandma's cookbooks, to a "t" and it didn't turn out so good.

I think it's because the orginal recipe called to put the biscuits on the bottom of the pan and then cover with the tuna mixture. Which was all fine and dandy, except that the biscuits didn't cook through then. They were still all doughy and gross because they didn't get the chance to bake up being all covered in goo. So as long as you put the biscuits on TOP of the tuna mixture, you should be golden!


...1 tube refrigerator biscuits
...1 c. milk
...1 can tuna
...1 can cream of mushroom soup
...1 can peas
...2 T. onion, chopped

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for the biscuits. Pour into a greased 9x9 pan. Place biscuits on top of the tuna mixture. Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes, until the biscuits are baked through and browned.

What size can of tuna did you use? Maybe I am missing it, but I don't see that listed in the ingredients list. Thanks!

What tasty comfort food! I made chicken and dumplings last night, but I'd never considered using tuna. Sounds very tasty!
