Shredded Potatoes and Beef Casserole {gluten, dairy, egg-free}

Pin It
In my previous life, you know the one in which we didn't have food allergies to deal with and I cooked whatever I felt like for dinner, I used to cook a lot of casseroles.  But most casseroles are pasta based and, while I do have a few gluten-free pastas I like, I really don't serve many casseroles anymore.  But casseroles can be so convenient because they usually don't require much kitchen time - just put together a few ingredients and pop it in the oven to bake (while you go fold laundry, change diapers, paint your nails - whatever).   So a few weeks ago, as I was craving something baked in one dish, I came across a bag of shredded potatoes in my freezer and a new family-pleasing dinner was born.  And as always, it has no gluten, dairy or eggs.  I imagine this one would freeze well, too.  See what you think?

Shredded Potatoes and Beef Casserole

1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
salt and pepper to taste
8 oz tomato sauce
1 cup peas
1 cup corn
5 cups shredded potatoes (fresh would be nice, but frozen works just fine)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  In a large skillet, saute onions in a bit of olive oil for a few minutes.  Add ground beef and brown it.  Add in garlic and other seasonings.  Add tomato sauce, peas and corn.  Cook until everything is mixed and heated through.  Transfer to a 13 x 11 baking dish.  Sprinkle shredded potatoes evenly over the top.  Bake uncovered at 450 for about 30 minutes.  Enjoy!

  2. This sounds great. I copied it for my file to keep.

  3. I remember life before my old food allergies came back to haunt me. Sometimes it is just crazy putting a meal together. I can't have wheat, or tomatoes etc... but everyone loves these thing so I make them... My daughter has nut allergies but my son loves nutty asian food... insanity. Well I will make you dish it will be a big hit with the kids because I haven't been making many casseroles lately either.
