This is sort of like a tuna casserole in potato form. Was a big hit with kids, they didn't even notice there was fish. However, it didn't go over well with me. The texture was a little funny.

My husband has been talking fondly of this dish for years so I finally researched AR and fortunately found this recipe. After reading the other reviews, I decided to use some of the other cook's advise with great success. I baked the potatoes on the oven rack after slathering with EVOO and kosher salt (lightly). The tuna mixture was seasoned with 2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning, 1/3 cp maoy and 1/3 cp sour cream along with the scallion onions. My husband was thrilled and announced, "now this is comfort food!". Thank you, Nascargirl and your thoughtful stepmom!

It was good but if you cut the amount of mayo in half and add sour cream, it's even better.
