Tuna Casserole (Gaps legal)


1  med. onion (thinly sliced)
1/2 c.     raw cheddar cheese (shredded)
1/4 c.     Gaps legal whipping cream (un-whipped, un-sweetened) (see note)
1/2 c.     dripped homemade yogurt
1/4 c.     strong chicken broth
1/2 c.     homemade mayo
1/2 c.     white mushrooms (finely chopped)
1 tsp.      sea salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
2 tbl.      dried dill                                                                                                                    1/4 tsp. celery seed
1  large  spaghetti squash
2  cans   tuna (in water or olive oil, no vegetable broth)
1/2 c.      “Topping” your choice, almond flour, crumbled pork   rinds  and/or  more cheese.                


Pierce and bake squash for 45 min to one hour. Let it cool a bit.
Cut it in half, scoop out seeds and scrape out the flesh into a bowl. Mix all ingredients together. Spread evenly into an 9×3 inch glass pan. You can sprinkle “breadcrumbs” for the last 15 minutes. I just did cheddar but you can add almond flour or crumbled pork rinds with cheese. Refrigerate until ready to bake. Bake at 400 degrees 45-60 minutes. The edges should be bubbly and the topping browned. Enjoy!

This even passed the Super picky hubby test!

Note-here is a recipe for whipped cream but you can use 1/2 stick of butter in its place.

    For sub idea on the “Cream” you can use butter, yogurt, sour cream or kefir.
    I was just going for the flavor of “cream of mushroom” something I grew up eating in everything. Eww, I know!
    but it ‘s now nostalgic and to make this a copycat, I had to try to recreate the taste.
    I served green peas and pickles on the side.
