Beef and Sweet Potato Casserole

As the weather cools down, comfort food like casseroles are what we crave. Most casseroles, unfortunately, aren’t exactly Paleo-friendly with starchy ingredients and cheese. Our Beef and Sweet Potato Casserole is chock full of seasonal veggies and hearty ground beef making it a healthy, filling, and delicious Paleo meal. A sprinkling of almonds adds that crunch factor you usually get from breadcrumbs or broiled cheese. For more Paleo casserole recipes and other scrumptious FREE Paleo recipes, visit the PaleoPlan recipe home page.
