Gluten Free Cheeseburger Spuds


Thought I'd share another gluten free creation from my kitchen that was a huge hit with my kids. I had a taste for a cheeseburger, but I haven't been able to find any good gluten free hamburger buns, so I did the next best thing. I mixed my cheeseburger with my fries...TAH cheeseburger spuds were born!

This meal literally takes no time at all and it satisfies that craving for a burger like no other I've found.
(All of my recipes are created for feeding a family of six, so adjust it accordingly for your family)

8-10 medium sized potatoes
2 lbs. ground meat

2-3 packets of Gluten Free Cheese Sauce ( I use our Cheese Sauce by Full Flavor Foods - Amazing product and it's on sale right now on our SALE page)
1 large onion
1 large tomato
2 cups of chopped lettuce
Dill pickle slices or dill relish
Salt, Pepper & Garlic powder

Bake 6 potatoes @ 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until tender

Brown the ground meat (I use ground turkey to make it healthier) Add garlic powder, salt & pepper to the meat for taste

Prepare the Cheese Sauce according to the package directions (Again, our Cheese Sauce is SO easy to prepare and it literally takes 5 minutes to make)

Slice the baked potatoes and top with the browned ground meat and cheese sauce. Top with all of your favorite cheeseburger toppings. ENJOY!

My kids never eat baked potatoes because they don't like the skin, but they ate these! Skin and all!! They got all the nutrients from the potatoes, enjoyed ground turkey without any complaints, and devoured lettuce, tomatoes and onions!! This is an amazing dish people!!

From our home to yours, best wishes for a happy gluten free day!
