One box of Kraft Dinner and one can of Tuna with the Juices squeezed out to make a Creamy KD and Tuna ready in about 10 minutes.

This is another Kraft Dinner recipe we had growing up. The can of Tuna has all the juices squeezed out and is added last, just to mix in and heat through. Adjust the consistency by adding in more milk at the end if desired.

KD and Tuna with Extra Cheese

The added Butter, Cheese Whiz & Milk makes it a creamy cheese dish. Optionally add in Cheese Whiz Sauce in place of the Cheese Whiz.

If you want a strong butter flavor to come through, then substitute the Sea Salt with Butter Popcorn seasoning.

If you want a more cheesy flavor, add shredded cheese when the dish is cooked and heat through until the cheese is melted. Then add Salt & Pepper to taste.

KD and Tuna Toppings

Some nice Cheesy Crackers crumbled over top is a nice touch. You can also drizzle over some Hot Sauce or yes, some Ketchup. I don’t know what it is about the Cheese & Ketchup Flavor, but I really love it.

How to Cook KD & Tuna

Throw everything into a skillet or wok, except for the canned tuna. Mix well and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the can of Tuna with the juices squeezed out and mix it in. Season with Salt & Pepper.
