Hotdish (Tater Tot Casserole)

Hotdish, (pronounced hoddish), is an easy, one-dish dinner often served in Minnesota at such large gatherings as family reunions, potlucks or church suppers. Don't be turned off by its humble appearance; the combination of cream of mushroom soup, corn, green beans, beef and a delightful crispy potato topping (the more taters, the better!) is universally likeable.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Add the oil to a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until soft and beginning to brown, about 15 minutes. Add the beef to the onions and cook until the meat is brown, stirring and scraping the bottom of the skillet to release the yummy brown bits, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the beef and onion mixture from the skillet into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Scatter the green beans and corn evenly on top. Spread the cream of mushroom soup over top and top with frozen potato nuggets. Bake uncovered for 1 hour; the potato nuggets should be golden brown. Serve.

    I've never heard of this before, but it had things my picky eaters eat so I tried it. I thought I'd get two meals out of it. There weren't any leftovers! May change corn and beans to frozen mixed veggies next time. Had a request for cheese on top so I may put some on half of it while I let it sit before serving.

    Ditto to the review by Patti Drew. I'm also from MN and so are all my relatives: it is "hotdish" for sure. With 20% fat in the meat, making it pretty tasty for cooking, throw in the onion with the meat and it cooks perfectly without all the added oil, but drain off first by tilting you pan and letting it sit for a bit.

    Classic Minnesota comfort food! But skip the olive oil--the meat and onions will cook up just fine without the extra grease. Feel free to vary what vegies you use. And, hey, I'm Minnesota-born-and-raised: I can say with authority that it's pronounced "hotdish."
