    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
    • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 8 oz (225 g) sharp cheddar cheese, divided (6 oz shredded, 2 oz cubed)
    • 2 (6 oz/170 g) cans tuna in water, drained well

    • Instructions
    • Preheat the oven to 400F. Butter an 8 by 8-inch casserole dish and set aside.
    • Cook the noodles to al dente according to the package directions; drain well and set aside.
    • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Once melted, add the onion and cook until softened, but not browned, about 7 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the flour and cook 1 minute. Whisk in the milk, bay leaf, Old Bay Spice, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper. Stirring frequently, bring up to a boil. Turn off the heat and whisk in the shredded cheddar. Remove and discard the bay leaf and stir in the noodles, tuna, peas, and cubed cheddar. Pour the tuna noodle mixture into the prepared dish.
    • For the topping, pulse the bread in a food processor until crumbled. While processing, pulse in the Old Bay Spice, and then gradually the butter. Sprinkle the topping on the casserole.
    • Bake until the casserole is warm throughout and golden on top, about 15 minutes.
    • Serve.
