 |  Category: Recipes  | Tags: , , ,  | Leave a Comment

I’m back at it – here’s something I just put together today, it was absolutely yummy – even if I say so myself 🙂


4 cups Mashed Potatoes
6 Meatballs, Can use frozen meatballs
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons Pasta Sauce
1 teaspoon Olive oil
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano, (Can use one sachet that comes with Pizza)
For Garlic Bread
5 slices bread
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon garlic, minced


For Potato Casserole:
1. Shallow Fry the meatballs
2. In a casserole dish, make a bed of mashed potatoes
3. Put in the fried meatballs – should be half inside the potatoes
4. Cover with pasta sauce, paprika and basil
5. Cover with cheese and oregano
6. Bake at 180 C for 12-15 minutes – until cheese starts to turn brown.

For Garlic Bread:
1. Melt the butter with garlic in a microwave
2. Butter one side of the bread slices
3. Bake at 180 C for 2-4 minutes


Mashed Potatoes can be made conventionally by boiling potatoes, mashing with cream and butter
I prefer to use potato flakes (called Aloo Mash in India), with butter, little bit of milk, salt and pepper and heating in a microwave

Two eggs can be added to the casserole before baking to add to the flavour.
