Hello fall. Hello sweatpants and comfort food galore. Hello jumping in the leaves and bright red trees in our backyard.

The wonderful thing about living in Minnesota is that we get 4 full seasons. Winter lasts the longest, but the prettiest is the Fall. The lakes are nice and cold, fall fishing is at its best, and us hearty Minnesotans eat hot dishes and casseroles to keep our tummy’s warm, starting about now.

This super easy dish was an old recipe from Grandma. It makes a wonderful side dish to grilled meats, or a nice pot roast.
