About Midwestern Cuisine

Tuna casseroles are part of a uniquely American food tradition prominently found in the Midwest. Midwestern cuisine draws from the traditions of immigrants from Central, Northern, and Eastern Europe, and blends those traditions with local crops as well as store-bought goods. Midwestern food often seems like it's several ingredients randomly thrown together — a can of this, a can of that — but there are some unifying themes found throughout the twelve-state region.

The first theme is that the food is meant to be shared. Think of church suppers and potlucks where you'll find casseroles, chili, and funeral foods. The second theme is the sparse amount of seasonings. Bold flavors don't characterize this food in the same way that they do in the Southwest. Instead, traditional Midwest food uses lighter seasonings like sage and parsley. Third, comfort food reigns supreme. Immigrants brought pieces of their culinary histories with them, using food as a way to connect with their homes. This feeling of nostalgia is found in almost all Midwest dishes, from pork tenderloin sandwiches to American-style goulash.

A very tasty version of a classic dish. It had great texture and was a great comfort food.

Finally! A tasty, hearty tuna noodle casserole that isn't designed to feed an army. The juxtaposition of the crispy topping with the creamy filling and tender noodles makes for an altogether delightful meal that I will be happy to make over and over again.

I had never had tuna casserole before, but this was a good recipe to start with. I used homemade whole wheat breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese instead of Cheddar.

I thought this casserole was really satisfying! I really enjoyed the Panko bread crumbs. It was a great texture addition.

I really enjoyed the Panko topping and the fact that it is a casserole for two. It was the perfect amount!

Yum! Nothing beats a good old-fashioned tuna noodle casserole. This tasted similar to my moms. The panko crumbs on top make it extra better.
