Minnesota hotdish recipes are among the most famous of Minnesota recipes. In most other parts of the country, a “hotdish” is simply a casserole. You can expect several versions of this staple to appear at family gatherings and church basement suppers in enclaves of Minnesota culture that are rooted in Scandinavian traditions.
Hot Dish – Lynn Christianson
In one large casserole pot, brown 2 lbs. hamburger, some onion, and green pepper. Add seasoning salt, sugar, salt, pepper, garlic powder, season all, Tabasco, Worcestershire, red pepper flakes, 2 cans tomato soup, 2 cans organic vegetable soup, 2 large can whole tomatoes, and 1 small can tomato sauce, together with uncooked medium macaroni shells. Simmer on stove top for 1 hour on low heat. We put this recipe under our South of the Border favorites, as we like to kick it up with 4 T. red pepper flakes.
