Minnesota Hot Dish
My family runs a corn and cattle farm in Minnesota, so you could say this dish is right up my alley, as I am a meat-and-potatoes kind of gal. I remember running into the farmhouse upon hearing the big brass dinner bell ring, and although we don’t have a bell in our home, the ding ing of the timer or closing of the oven door acts as a similar cue. When this dish is served, it’s not hard to call people into the kitchen.

- In a large skillet, sauté the onion in olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until the meat is no longer pink. Drain any excess fat and return the meat to the pan. Add the frozen vegetables, soup, milk, cheese, and salt. Stir and simmer for 2 minutes.
