    Deep-Dish Tuna Pie

    Source of Recipe


    1/2 of an 11-ounce package piecrust mix (1-1/2 cups)
    1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
    1 medium potato peeled and diced (about 1 cup)
    1/4 cup water
    1 10-3/4-ounce can condensed cream of mushroom soup
    1/3 cup milk
    1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    3/4 teaspoon dried dillweed
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1 16-ounce package frozen mixed vegetables
    1 9-1/2-ounce can tuna, drained and broken into chunks
    1 beaten egg

    Prepare piecrust mix according to package directions, except do not roll out. Cover dough; set aside.

    In a large skillet cook onion and potato in water, covered, about 7 minutes or until tender. Drain off liquid. Stir in soup, milk, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, dillweed, and pepper. Cook and stir until mixture is bubbly. Gently stir in frozen mixed vegetables and tuna. Spoon mixture into an ungreased 2-quart casserole.

    On a lightly floured surface roll pastry into a circle 2 inches larger than the diameter of the top of the casserole and about 1/8 inch thick. Make 1-inch slits near the center of the pastry. Center pastry over top of casserole, allowing it to hang over edge. Trim pastry 1/2 inch beyond edge of casserole. Turn pastry under; flute to the casserole edge, pressing gently. Brush pastry with beaten egg.

    Bake in a 400 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Serve immediately.
