Try our revved-up version of America’s old weeknight staple! Our Cheesy Tuna Casserole with potato chip topping recipe is one with the crunch kids will beg for. For more yummy recipes like this see my Main Dish page.
Looking for a better way to enjoy the old tuna casserole recipe? We added super crunchy kettle potato chip topping to America’s favorite weeknight dish.
This casserole is so simple to put together for a quick and easy weeknight meal. Just boil some noodles, defrost some frozen peas and open up a couple of cans of Campbell’s Soup. Mix and layer it all together and bake up some yummy goodness!
The crunch of the kettle chips stays even through the baking process. Even though you may think you do not like tuna noodle casserole. I promise the recipe is a keeper. You never eat that old tuna version again!
Cheesy Tuna Casserole
What to serve with tuna casserole?
You do not need to serve anything with it unless you want to. It has the meat, cheese, and peas for veggies already in it. But if you really think you need a side dish or are making this recipe for a crowd. Then anything green and leafy will do. A side salad, broccoli, veggie medleys, or brussels sprouts would work great!
Try these recipes as side dishes:
- Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts
- Simple Oven Roasted Cabbage Steaks
- Oven Roasted Cauliflower
- Our Fav Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese
- 30+ Tempting Backyard BBQ Summer Salad Recipes
What kind of Potato Chips for the Topping can I use?
Any kind really. We just love the kettle chip versions because the crunch really lasts after baking and even in the leftovers. The cheese melts into the chips to make a thick crust. So yummy!
MAKE AHEAD: Place single servings in an airtight container and store this casserole in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
FREEZER: Place in an airtight container or freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost in a microwave or in the refrigerator overnight. Bake on 350 for 25 minutes or microwave for 2-3 minutes on high until done.
I hope you enjoy our version as much as we do!

Easy to assemble and tasted very good! ✌
I’m going to see if I can run out and grab the ingredients to make this for tonight’s premiere of Walking Dead. I’m going to use your recipe as Carol’s casserole dish :-)
What temp do you bake it at?

This sounds so good! My mom made tuna casserole a lot when I was a kid & I haven’t had it in years!
