This recipe is a great way to sneak in some protein, vitamins and Omega-3s into your kid’s meal without raising suspicions!
1 package (14 oz) Mac & Cheese (I like Horizon organic brand)
1 can (10-3/4 oz) condensed cream of celery soup
1 can (6 oz) tuna, drained, flaked (water-packed tuna retains the Omega 3s better than oil-packed)
1 cup of frozen peas/corn (or any tiny, easy-to-hide veggie)
1/2 cup of milk (I use almond milk)
2 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
1 cup bread crumbs (fresh or canned)
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350º F.
Prepare Mac & Cheese as directed on package.
Add soup, tuna, veggies, milk and onion to prepared Mac & Cheese. Mix lightly.
Spoon into 2 quart casserole dish.
Mix melted butter and bread crumbs. Sprinkle over dinner mixture.
Bake 35 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
