Beef and Corn Casserole (Gluten Free Freezer Meal)

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

This comfort food meal is perfect for cold winter days. Beef and corn casserole was first introduced to me by my friend Tyler and she helped me figure out how to make it gluten free because she and I both have kids that are on gluten free diets. This freezes well and is a fairly well balanced meal. It is also extremely kid-friendly.

Gluten Free Beef and Corn Casserole Freezer Meal
2 pounds ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
12 oz. can kernel corn, drained
20 – 24 oz. tomato soup – this can be creamy tomato soup that is gluten free or gluten free condensed tomato soup
1 Tbsp. ketchup
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups cooked gluten free noodles*
1 1/4 cups grated cheddar cheese

*I prefer Tinkyada pasta to the other brands of gluten free pastas I’ve tried as I find it has a better texture and doesn’t get mushy. For this, I used Tinkyada brown rice penne.

Brown the ground beef until no longer pink, adding the onion about halfway through cooking time. Put cooked meat mixture, corn, soup, ketchup, and seasoning in a bowl and mix.

Cook noodles (al dente). Drain. Mix into the other ingredients. Put the whole thing into a large resealable freezer bag. Remove excess air and seal.

Put the grated cheese into a medium resealable freezer bag and seal. Staple it to the top of the other bag, being sure to staple above the seals on both bags. Lay flat and freeze.

On cooking day, thaw the bag, carefully remove the staples and throw staples away. Pour casserole into a baking dish and sprinkle cheese on top. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes, covered. Uncover for the last 10 minutes of cooking.

  1. Thanks for the props, Sharla! This is one of our family faves!

  2. Can I freeze the ingredients together before cooking and then defrost raw and dump into the crockpot to cook?

    • I’ve never tried this one in the crock pot so I don’t know. I think as long as the noodles were pre-cooked, it would work just fine. I would suggest only adding the cheese in the last 20 minutes or so.

  3. how long do you thaw for?
