The Art of the Hotdish

Email News Alerts

When I moved to Minnesota more than 15 years ago, I was invited to a

colleague's home for dinner. She said we were going to have a Minnesota favorite: hotdish.


The first thing I thought was, "Wow, here is somebody who likes spicy food! I wonder if she will use cayenne pepper or fresh chilies?"

I learned quickly that "hotdish" was another name for "casserole" and the spiciness of the components didn't necessarily have anything to

do with it.
