Cheese-less Potato Casserole – Grain & Dairy Free

by Contributing Author

Growing up in the corridors of Utah and Idaho, “funeral potatoes” were commonplace in my daily life. Of course, when people realized that the name of such a great dish was a bit bleak, many started calling it “cheesy potato casserole” instead. is difficult.

We have some dietary restrictions in our house, so it’s been fun finding ways to have the same experience (or something close to it, and sometimes better) while still providing food for my wife and daughter. And this one comes out just in time for Easter. This is the time when this dish can always be found on our table.

As usual, we left out all grains, gluten, and dairy, but left in all flavors. The texture was perfect and the whole table couldn’t stop eating this (both kids and adults, with or without dietary restrictions). If you have a lot of dietary restrictions and want to bring a side dish that is a little more gentle, then definitely give this a try.
