Paleo: Meat & Potato Casserole

Mmmmmm happy Monday. What better way to finish a Monday than with a delicious, warming casserole with some of my favorite ingredients. This has veggies, meat and a healthy carb (sweet potatoes, duh) so feel free to indulge on this meal and not feel a bit of guilt. Sweet potatoes are so good for you and do not cause inflammation like a lot of other grains (most grains) so I eat these as often as I want! I also used 1/2 ground turkey for this dish to cut the fat just a little! Nothing wrong with grassfed beef fat, but, I like to mix it up sometimes.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb grassfed beef
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 3-4 medium to large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into thin circles
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 head cauliflower, riced (use cheese grater and “rice” into a large bowl)
  • 5 eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 tbsp adobo sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp grassfed butter
  • Olive oil

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel and slice your sweet potatoes very thin and toss in a bowl with some olive oil, sea salt, pepper, chili powder and paprika. Arrange half of them in a large glass baking dish. Now, heat a dab of coconut oil in a large skillet (I use an XL cast iron) and saute your onions and garlic and then add your meat. Cook for 5-6 minutes before adding your spices and adobo sauce. Add the cauliflower last after the meat looks cooked and mix well. Now, pour this mixture into a large bowl and add the whisked eggs and stir. Now begin the layers of the casserole: add a layer of the beef mixture, a layer of potatoes, and another layer of beef, and another layer of potatoes. Be sure to finish with a layer of potatoes on top. Bake covered in foil for 50 minutes. Enjoy!

Serves 8.
