will heat up the leftover Tater Tot Hotdish at 8 AM and call it breakfast. Don't ask me how I know this.
Elsewhere people will bake a casserole for supper. Here in Minnesota a casserole is the dish used for baking and hotdish is what goes into the casserole.
Hotdish appears in church basements after a funeral or at church suppers and family reunions. Every farm wife worth her salt has a favorite hotdish recipe. They usually consist of a meat, a vegetable, a starch and a can or two of cream of whatever soup.
Tater Tot Hotdish
1 pint jar (or 1 lb. browned) hamburger
1 pint jar (or 1 can) mixed vegetables
2 cans cream soup (chicken or mushroom or celery or a combination)
Tater Tots to cover the top
Layer the above ingredients in a casserole dish. Like onions? Toss some in with the vegetables. Same with mushrooms. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Leftovers can be heated up for breakfast the next day. :)
