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 Tater Tot Casserole

I'm always trying to come up with new crock pot recipes because some days we are just too busy to make supper. This one is so fast to prepare and my family loved it. The tater tots don't hold their shape like they do in this one that is baked in the oven. However, we prefer the crock pot version.

Crock Pot Tater Tot Casserole

32 oz tater tots
1 lb cooked ground beef or any meat desired
1 can green beans or any vegetable desired
1 can gravy
1 gravy can soy milk or additional gravy

Place the tater tots in the bottom of a sprayed crock pot. Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour the mixture over top but do not stir. Cover then cook on high for 3 hours or low for 5 hours.

  1. This looks amazing and how quick and easy to throw together when you don't have time to put together dinner. I love recipes like this! I'm wondering if I could substitute chicken or vegetable broth for the gravy? Most canned gravies around here have gluten in them. I could make my own, but if broth would work, it would be quicker ☺ Thanks so much for sharing in our recipe hop this week!

  2. Mary - I think broth should work fine. My girls are just gravyaholics.

  3. Very ingenious I never thought of using tater tots in a recipe.

  4. This looks scrumptious! Thanks so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday :)

  5. Hi Lori,
