Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Hotdish

on December 20, 2013

There’s something about this time of year that makes me want “comfort food”.

Maybe it’s the cold and snow or maybe it’s the family get-togethers.

in the snow

We all know Minnesota is famous for “hotdish” – the ultimate “comfort food”.

The definition of “hotdish” is a starch, a protein, canned vegetables and canned soup.

Grandma had a lot of “hotdish” recipes.

There’s just something about coming into the house after . . .

playing in the snow,

shoveling,

shopping,

getting your Christmas tree,

a “hotdish” in the oven, it’s cream of (something) soup bubbling away in the casserole dish.

It’s comfort food.

Pure and simple.

I should rename this recipe “Hotdish No. 1” since I’m sure we’ll have many more recipes just named “Hotdish“.

Hotdish

Note the “V Good” tag.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Hotdish

Mix together:

2 cups celery, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 1/2 pound ground beef, browned

4 Tablespoon soy sauce

1 cup uncooked Minute Rice

1 can cream of mushroom soup

3 1/2 cup boiling water

Bake covered at 400 degrees for 1 hour, then uncover and bake at 350 degrees for another 1/2 hour.

This is the mixture before adding the boiling water.

051

All mixed up and ready for the oven.

056

It comes out all crusty on top and the soup/sauce is bubbling away.

061

Again – total comfort food.

So comforting.
