i made this once but made the “base” out of homemade cheese crisps. then the tuna and then melted muenster on top. it was amazing and really scratched the itch. (didn’t realize i was eating keto then! lol)

How about with spaghetti squash noodles or zoodles?

@Ketoberry, sure, why not?


I am on board here too! Looks delicious. I will try this week. This is zero carbs, right?

Tuna noodle casserole doesn’t have zero carbs, but pretty close.

Shiritaki noodles, made of konjac rather than tofu, have one gram carb in 100 g. or 3.5 ounces, and that amount is quite generous for one serving.

If you put any vegetables for flavor or color, you’ll have some carbs.

Cream, cream cheese, and hard cheese have carbs, though few.

Tuna has no carbs.

It may depend on how big a serving you have.

This thread is making me hungry for this dish. I can almost taste it.

@dkat, almost.
2 ounces cheese has one gram carbohydrate, most mayo has zero or 1 gram carbohydrate per tablespoon.

If you mean Zero Carb as in ZC (only animal products) it could be, if you made homemade mayo such as baconnaise.

Goodness, you look like you’re suffering so much :broken_heart:


Thank you Brenda! I really enjoy you on the 2 Keto Dudes! I was asking because of the zero carb fast thinking I’d join the group fast. I will look for a baconnaise recipe on the forum, which I am really enjoying.

Thank you again!

Good Lawdddd this needs to get into my bellllllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!! :heart_eyes:

@Brenda - Do you use Tuna in oil or water?

(Eli Miles) #34

Any idea if this reheats well?

(IDM Educator) #35

In water. In oil would taste to rich for me. :slight_smile:

(Howie Levy) #36

great recipe. I almost never make new things but this checks two boxes for me, quick and high fat. Thank you Ketoers!

(IDM Educator) #37

I never tried reheating, but I am sure it would work fine!

(Robert scott) #38

Going to try this on Sunday

The vintage pyrex especially helps to qualify this as comfort food ;-)…ahhhh happy memories!

I own at least 100 pieces. Mostly sets of Princess bowls. I used to collect older 60’s era Pyrex.
I should put more in my photos
