Tuna Casserole

When people talk about Minnesota food no doubt you'll hear about hotdish (usually made for a Lutheran church supper). I grew up with hotdishes; American Chow Mein, Chicken Almond Party Bake and such though we called them casseroles in Michigan. They may seem a little white trash but sometimes you want that comforting mix of protein, creamed soup & something crunchy. This is the Tuna Casserole I grew up with. I'm not sure where my mom got the recipe.

1 small can evaporated milk

Mix everything together in a casserole. Place the casserole in a pan of hot water. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
