I mean really…
when you make lasagna dairy-free and possible egg-free…
that the whole family devours and even the neighbor boy wants seconds of…
Amazing, quite amazing.
I never, ever thought tasty, edible dairy-free lasagna would be possible.
Not until Milk Allergy Mom Membership, that is.
This small but mighty tribe spurs me on to all kinds of firsts.
Like eating out.
And dropping off.
And making lasagna, of course!
We’ve had so much fun with our lasagna experiments inside the group together.
Not a member yet? Whatcha waiting for! Join us here.
But either way, I’ve gotta share our easy peasy lasagna recipe below.
I honestly think it’s easier than spaghetti with meat sauce.
Or maybe it’s just more rewarding.
Today I’m going to share the egg-free cheesy filling.
But we will be making our egg version soon…
it’s a little different and just as good.
Stay tuned if you can have egg!
Below is the egg-free, dairy-free lasagna recipe.
Without egg in the cheese mixture, it kind of melts into the meat.
But that’s ok!
You can still taste that element and it’s delicious…
especially with the seasonings we add.
Also see our quick video about the lasagna in this post!
The last time I made this dairy and egg free lasagna,
I prepared it two days in advance.
You can cook the burger and noodles and make the cheese mixture, layer it, and cover and refrigerate for baking a day or two later.
Super convenient and handy.
It also makes amazing leftovers.
Serve with garlic toast and an easy veggie…and dinner is done!
I’m definitely chocking this up as a picky eater dinner…
because mine loves it.
Hope you do, too!
BAKED MILK OPTION
Eleven years into anaphylactic milk allergy,
we are blessed to be doing milk desensitization with our allergist.
And this is one of the dishes we can add a little dairy to for my son’s daily milk dose.
That’s because it’s white shredded cheese, on the top, baked at 350, for more than 30 minutes.
But nobody should do this without the help and direction from a board certified allergist.
When we use this recipe for baked milk,
we talk to our allergist about how much real shredded cheese we can add to the top.
But right now we don’t use any dairy in the inside layers, we keep the inside cheese mixture dairy-free for now.
Hope this helps any family needing baked milk options…but you must ask your doctor for specific instructions.
All kids desensitizing milk allergy have personalized safety thresholds.
And we want you to be safe.
Now here’s the dairy-free and egg-free lasagna recipe!
