Tonight I wrote out every basketball game that we have beginning this week through February. Add an upcoming vacation along with holidays I realize my cooking is going to become hurried but I still need a plan for a few family meals a night. I was looking through past blog posts tonight for some Hunk of Meat Monday inspiration and came across this one that I am re-posting for Cheeseburger Fries Hotdish which our kids love. If you aren’t from the upper Midwest you would call it a casserole. But we eat hotdish through all seasons but especially on chilly nights and of course they are stand-by staples on busy nights too.
Is it hotdish or casserole in your neck of the woods?
I was introduced into the world of hotdishes when I married my husband 37 years ago. He is from the UP of Michigan. So I know what hotdish is, but anyone here in my town in Ohio, has no idea what I am talking about.
I’m in the Northeast corner of Nebraska and it’s called Casserole around here for the most part, but you don’t have to go very far north to run into hotdish. We’re close enough to the dotted line that we know it as both, but only use “casserole”.
Always nice to learn something new.
I only know casserole, too.
And your dish is very similar to what I am making tonight.
Only difference is I am using tater tots and regular (condensed) mushroom soup.
I’m glad we don’t cook like Martha. 😉
