Minnesota's signature hot dish
Don't you dare call this a casserole! Hot dish is the official food of Minnesota. Variations abound but this one covers the basics. Put your own spin on it and enter it in a hot dish contest! (yes that is something you can do here). Quick to prepare, and warm and filling for those long dark winter days. It is a staple for M N families.
