Tuna Pot Pie

When I was a kid my mom used to make Tuna Helper Tuna Pot Pie. I LOVED it. Then they stopped making it. It has been years since I have eaten Tuna Pot Pie. When my mom came to visit for Christmas, we decided to try and make it. I do believe we succeeded. Tonight I decided to make it on my own as I had all the ingredients for it. I must say it turned out yummy yet again, for those that wish to try:

Tuna Pot Pie (serves 4)

Ingredients for filling:

1 large pouch of Tuna or 3-4 regular cans
1 bag of Mixed Frozen Vegetables
1 can Whole Potatoes Drained and cut in 1/4's
2 can Cream of Celery soup
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Ingredients for crust:

2 cups Busquick
1 cup milk
1 TBSP Parsley Flakes
2 Eggs


Spray 2 1/2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
Combine all Filling ingredients in a large bowl.
Place filling in casserole dish.
Combine all Crust ingredients in a large bowl.
Pour over top of filling.
Bake 30 min @ 400 degrees.


For a lighter filling use 1 can cream of celery soup and 1 can chicken broth.
For a lighter crust use 1 cup Bisquick, 1/2 cup milk and 1 egg.
You can also vary the type of cream of soup and vegetables to taste and/or add 1/2 cup cheese to tuna mixture.



  1. I have be looking for a recipe to recreate the tune help tuna pot pie, we loved this as kids. Was wondering if you have tried this recipe and what you thought about it.

  2. I have the solution for the perfect copycat. Use Bear Creek wild rice soup mix. It tasted identical to the original filling. Just make sure you remove the wild rice. It takes time, but is worth it. Also, when making the crust, make sure to use eggs in top and bottom crust. Also, the top crust was pourable, while the bottom crust was spread on. If you use BC, you will make a great facsimile. It tasted just like the real deal. Experiment with the crusts, though. That takes some work.

  3. I'm going to try this soon I loved the Betty Crocker version and was bummed when they stopped making it. Thank you!!!
