  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef * see note
  • ½ cup onion diced
  • ½ cup scallion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced


  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos or tamari
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 3 large russet potatoes
  • ¼ cup heavy cream * see note
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar * see note


  • Preheat the oven to 375º F.
  • Peel the potatoes, chop them, and add them to a pot of water. Bring to a boil until the potatoes are soft.
  • Drain the potatoes. Add cream and cheddar to the pot and use an electric mixer to whip the potatoes. 
  • In a skillet add the olive oil and brown the onion, scallion, and garlic. Cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add the meat and cook until the meat is browned. 
  • While the meat is cooking, add the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl. Pour onto the cooking meat and simmer for 10 minutes. 
  • Add the mashed potatoes to the springform pan. Press it up against the sides to make an indentation for the meat.
  • Spoon in the meat mixture onto the potato crust.
  • Bake for 25 minutes until the meat is bubbly.
  • Serve hot.


  1. You can use lean or regular ground beef. To make this low fat, use ground turkey or chicken.
  2. I recommend using russet potatoes because russet potatoes whip up fluffier.
  3. To make this recipe dairy-free, use dairy-free cream and a dairy-free cheddar like Daiya, VioLife, or Kite Hill brands.
  4. This casserole will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
