Uncle Charlies Grilled Tuna Casserole recipe from 50’s Prime Time Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    Although it is most commonly associated with Middle America and 1950s housewives, the first written recipes for tuna casserole emerged in the Pacific Northwest two decades earlier. The first, “Noodles with Tuna Fish en Casserole,” came from Sunset Magazine in 1930, from a “Mrs. W. F. S.” in Kennewick, Washington. The same year, a “tuna fish and noodles casserole” appears on a menu proposed by The Modern Hospital magazine, which presumably seems quite suitable to the dish’s detractors.
