Tuna Dumplings give us a great deal of delicious comfort. They're easy homemade dumplings filled with a tuna and cream cheese mixture.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted and divided
  • 1 (12-ounce) can tuna, drained and flaked
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped celery
  • 1 (8-ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 3/4 cup seasoned croutons, crushed

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in tuna, milk, and celery; set aside.
  3. Unroll crescent dough, separating into 4 rectangles; press perforations together to seal. Spoon 1/4 tuna mixture into center of each rectangle; bring corners of each rectangle together over tuna mixture and twist gently to seal.
  4. Place crushed croutons in a shallow dish. Brush dumplings with remaining butter, dredge in crushed croutons, and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake dumplings 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Never heard of tuna dumplings. I made something similar with chicken filling that was great as a dip or spread but the dumpling/crescent made it all a bit too dough-y. Not as in raw, but as in too much bread by the time they finished baking. Has anyone had a similar experience with these?

MAde these tonight for my wife and I. They were very very good and easy to make.

Turned out great! I will try it with chicken, too.. wonderful flavor.

The ingredients says tsp of butter but in the notes its says tbs, which is it tsp or tbs?

Oops! Sorry about that! Thanks for catching our mistake; we've gone ahead and updated the recipe to reflect the correct amount in the ingredients: 3 tablespoons of butter!

I have made theses many husband & I love them. My only suggestion would be to make sure the tuna is well drained. I did add chives a few times when I had them in my garden.

they were delicious!!! They were absolutely delicious

These were very easy to make and delicious. I added about a teaspoon of chopped scallion and about a quarter cup+ of sliced canned mushrooms (drained). Yummy meal.

they sound so good i'am making them for supper.i'll leave you know how they turn out. mary williams

I cannot stand tunafish, but I think this would taste great with cooked chicken and onions instead of celery. Thanks for a great idea!
