    I’ve been hunting for the Curried Tuna Casserole recipe I remember from my teen years. So glad to find it here! My mother and I modified it somewhat, sauteing a chopped onion in the butter before adding the curry powder (instead of using canned onions), baking a generous top layer of apple jelly right into the casserole, and topping it before serving with crumbled bacon (skipping the other suggested toppings). It’s irresistible.
