Tanno's Tonnino Tuna Treasure - The Recipe - By Popular Demand

My fans have requested a copy of my video recipe for them to follow. So here it is:

1/2      jar         Tonnino Tuna (any flavor)
1         each      Russet Potato (thin slices)
2         oz         Gruyere Cheese (grated)
1/2      oz         Parmesan Cheese (grated)
1         tbsp      Cream
1/2      oz         Butter
To taste           Salt and White Pepper
Garnish            Paprika and fresh parsley

1. Coat the bottom of an oven-safe dish with butter.
2. Put down a layer of potato slices.
3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
4. Pour cream over.
5. Sprinkle a layer of Gruyere.
6. Put down another layer of potato and another layer of Gruyere.
7. Top with a layer of parmesan.
8. Wrap with foil and bake approx 30-45 minutes in a 350 degree oven, until you can poke a toothpick easily through the potatoes.
9. Uncover and put back in the oven for about 5 minutes to toast the parmesan, until light golden brown.
10. Cool for 5-10 minutes (so the cream stops bubbling), and sprinkle with paprika and fresh chopped parsley.
11. Serve hot and YUM!

Notes: For more servings, just increase the potatoes until you fill your dish and sprinkly with enough cheese for a very thin layer. Don't over cheese or over cream, as it will become a soggy mess. Definitely use Tonnino Tuna, it is very moist and works well in the oven.

  1. Thank you, Jaime. I will definitely give it a go.

  2. I think you're missing a step. Where do you put the TUNA?

  3. Step 6A. Put down a layer of tuna fillets on top of the last layer of potato, before you put the last layer of cheese! :)~
