I hadn't, but some folks I know where talking about this midwest dish and how good it is.
Sounded easy enough.
I went out on the interwebz and found there are a lot of different recipies for "hot dish", so I made a variation for dinner tonight.
Really easy, this 'hot dish' thing!
So what I made was basically a ham and cheese dish.
I had a box of Mac shells left over from some powdered cheese the wife used last weekend, I had a ham steak in the frig and some frozen veggies in the
freezer. I needed to buy a whole can of cream of mushroom soup at the store ($0.69) and some cheddar cheese.
It came out FANTASTIC!!! (even the wife loved it!!)
Mac noodles cooked and drained
2 C ham steak chopped into 1" cubes (or less)
1/2 chopped onion
1 stalk of celery thin sliced
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 small handfull of SW veggies (w/ black eyed peas, corn and green beans)
2 TBS Pimento peppers
1 C plain yogurt
1 shot of Sherry (not cooking Sherry)
1/2 C grated cheddar + 1/2 C more (reserved)
-Preheat oven to 375
-Cooked the noodles, drained and set aside.
-Sauteed the onions and celery 5-6 min (in DO)
-Dumped in the ham and sauteed for 2-3 more minutes
-Dumped in the soup, yogurt, veggies, pimentos and the shot of Sherry.
-Mixed all ingredients and added 1/2 C cheese
-covered DO and cooked in oven at 375 for 25 minutes
-uncovered DO and added rest of cheese on top, cooked or another 5-6 minutes.
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! Staggeringly good!!! Talk about "comfort food!!"
P.S. I added a little Louisiana Hot Sauce over mine upon serving. Off the hook!!
