Hamburger Potato Lasagna became a dinner idea when we had an abundance of mashed potatoes left over from a previous meal. I know, huh? Who doesn’t eat all the mashed potatoes served?
Leftovers are the mother of invention. We had some leftover Mashed Potatoes last weekend after our Red & White Supper, so I decided to create a layered casserole, similar to lasagna but using the potatoes instead of noodles. I layered one layer of each of the ingredients, and the result was a tasty, gluten free supper that both kids and adults like. It’s a great way to use leftovers!
What’s a Red & White Supper, you ask? It was a good excuse to have a winter party. And since it was close to Valentine’s Day, we invited several friends and asked each of them to make and bring a red or white appetizer, salad or dessert. We provided the wine and main dish. What recipe would you make for such a party?
What You Need
You will need a knife, cutting board, measuring cups and spoons, a sauté pan and a casserole dish. Do yourself a favor and buy the best kitchen tools you can afford.
