Meat and Potato Casserole

Here is a recipe one of our members (SCJ) has shared. SCJ recently joined an organic co-op (in Florida) so she ends up with a bunch of food and not much creativity. In desperation SCJ called a friend, a foodie to the core. SCJ's friend gave her an easy recipe she made that very night.

Meat and Potato Casserole

1 large Yam (peeled and sliced in 1/2 inch wheels), you can substitute sweet potatoes or carrots
2 medium Potatoes (peeled and sliced in 1/2 inch wheels)

Pile these into a baking dish, drizzle with a generous amount of olive oil, lightly salt and pepper
Bake at 400˚F for 30 minutes or until tender

While roasting the yams and potatoes, cook up a meat of your choice. I had ground turkey which I browned, drained, and set aside.

Once potatoes are tender, pull them out of oven (leave oven on), cover them with meat, pour 1 cup chicken broth over the casserole, cover with 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Optional: add 1/2 tsp. Paprika or Chili Powder.

Bake for an additional 20 minutes.

Serve with a green veggie for a balanced meal.

Thanks SCJ for this yummy sounding recipe. I can't wait to try it.
