Minnesota Hot Dish!

I'd never heard the term until we moved to Minnesota. Before we moved here, what I am about to show you was called a casserole. Here, the generic term for this mixture of hot food is called "Hot Dish."

This recipe is a recipe I was given here in Minnesota at an international fest hosted at my child's school when she was in 6th grade. I actually chased the maker of the "hot dish" down to get the recipe. To say this is significant because, as you can see, sauerkraut is a main ingredient. Until I tasted this magnificent "hot dish," I was a sauerkraut HATER!
Now, I love it!

All right, here's the recipe for this Minnesota Hot Dish. It only takes 5 ingredients, and it can cook up in 45 minutes to an hour. It is delicious!

Here's the finished product! ------->

Minnesota Hot Dish

1 can of sauerkraut
(You can use the smaller sized can, too.)
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 cup of uncooked shells or macaroni
1 pound of hamburger
1 small onion

How do you make this "hot dish?"

1) Brown the hamburger with the onion. Drain.
2) Mix together the hamburger and onion mixture with the soup, uncooked pasta, and sauerkraut.
3) Put in a casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour.

Easy peasy! And it tastes delicious! Now, you can join those of us who live up north and say,
"Yah, you betcha! Ya'll."
