My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free Dairy Free Crock Pot Meat and Hash Brown Potatoes

This casserole is definetely a keeper. My family absolutely loved it and I'm always happy to find a new crock pot recipe. This meal reminded me of a crock pot shepherd’s pie because the potatoes got soft like mashed potatoes. The top picture is made with ground beef and peas then the bottom picture is made with chicken and corn. This meal would be very good with almost any meat and vegetable combinations.

Crock Pot Meat and Hash Brown Potatoes

3-4 cups frozen hash brown fried potatoes, partially thawed
1 lb cooked meat such as ground beef, bulk sausage, diced kielbasa, diced ham, diced chicken, etc.
1 can vegetables such as peas, corn, mixed vegetables, etc.
1 can gravy
1 cup soy milk or water

Place the potatoes in the bottom of the crock pot. Place the meat over top followed by the vegetables. In a separate bowl, combine the gravy and soy milk. Pour the gravy mixture over top and do not stir. Cover and cook on low for 4 1/2 – 5 1/2 hours.


  1. Any substitute for gravy suggestions?

  2. I'm so sorry that I didn't see your comment earlier. You can make your own simple gravy by using this recipe.
