Tuna Melt Pie

I took Rachel Ray's Tuna Melt Pie recipe and modified it for our family's taste:


1 tblsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
8 florets of broccoli, chopped (you can also use chopped stems)
Four 5-ounce cans of tuna, drained
2 tblsp mayonnaise
1.5 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup milk
3 eggs
1/4 cup flour
2 tblsp butter, melted

First, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Then, heat olive oil in a large skillet, add the onions and stir until they are translucent. Add the chopped up broccoli and cook another 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure nothing sticks to the pan.

In a large bowl, combine the tuna and mayo and mix together.

Then combine the onion/broccoli mixture as well as 2/3rds of the cheese. Mix well.

Then, in a small bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, flour and butter. Stir that into the tuna mixture and transfer the entire thing to a 10 inch pie dish. Bake until browned - about 35 minutes. Top with the remaining cheese and broil until the cheese has melted.

My kids really enjoyed this meal and asked for seconds and thirds. Whew!
