Egg and Tuna Bake

Egg and Tuna Bake

Posted 2017-10-16 by finyfollow

The addition of boiled eggs to this combination make it particularly nice, and my visitors all asked how I made it!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 6

Ingredients
425 g can John West tuna in brine, drained
1 cup rice
1 tbsp butter
1 shallot, or small onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ cup sour cream
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp curry powder, or to taste
1 onion, finely chopped
4 tomatoes sliced
5 hard boiled eggs, chopped
125 g sliced Mozzarella cheese

Method
  • Cook the rice as per packet instructions. Drain

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the onion and cook until softened - about 3 minutes.

  • Tip it into a bowl, add the cooked rice, parsley, beaten egg, some salt and pepper, and mix until all the ingredients are well combined.

  • Preheat the oven to 180°/160° fan forced, and grease a 20 cm square casserole or ovenproof dish (I used a Corning ware as I could then use the same dish that I had boiled the rice in!)

  • Press the rice mixture firmly into the casserole.


  • In a small bowl, mix the tuna, sour cream, the egg, curry powder, onion and salt and pepper to taste.

  • Arrange half of the sliced tomatoes over the rice.


  • Top with a layer of hard boiled eggs.


  • Spread the tuna mixture over the gg.

  • Top with the remaining sliced tomato and Mozzarella cheese.


  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until the cheese is golden and the food is hot.

  • I served it with a coleslaw and pineapple salad.
