Catholic Recipe: Tuna Shepherd's Pie
Here is meatless variation of the traditional shepherd's pie, made with tuna instead of beef.
Combine onion and cold water; let stand until water is absorbed. Combine with eggs, milk, bread crumbs, parsley, and seasonings in large mixing bowl. Beat until blended. Mix in tuna. Turn into 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes. Remove. Increase oven heat to 550°. Prepare mashed potatoes according to package directions; season to taste. Cut cheese slices into 2 triangles each. Pile potatoes on top of tuna mixture; arrange cheese triangles over potatoes. Place under broiler to melt cheese.
