Creamy Ham and Noodle “Hotdish” Casserole

Since Minneapolis, Minnesota, was the featured host of the 2018 Super Bowl 52, I couldn’t resist whipping up a "Super Bowl" of hot, creamy and cheesy noodles with chunks of ham in every mouthful to what Minnesotans call a hotdish or many others call a casserole. 

Whatever you want to call it, it’s really just a mix of simple ingredients, usually noodles or potatoes, all mixed together and baked in the oven. The hearty ingredients go well on these Bold North winter days when we just want to stay inside, be lazy, watch some football and enjoy an ideal comfort food.



This one is so easy to put together – let’s get started!






Ingredients:

4 cups egg noodles
8 oz package diced cooked ham
1 cup shredded Colby/Jack cheese
1 can cream of chicken soup
½ cup sour cream
¼ cup milk
Dash of minced onion and salt & pepper
12 Ritz crackers, crushed
1 Tbsp butter melted




Directions:

Boil egg noodles a little under the package cooking directions – approx 5 min. (noodles will bake in oven later)

Mix together: cream of chicken soup, sour cream, milk, minced onions and seasoning.




Spray casserole dish or baking cookware with cooking spray.

Layer: ½ of cooked egg noodles, ½ diced ham, ½ soup mixture and ½ cheese

Repeat with one more layer to finish




Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min.


Topping: put Ritz crackers in sealed baggie and crush to crumbled texture add the melted butter and mix together. Spread on top of casserole and bake for additional 10-15 min. until lightly browned.




Scoop into your Super Bowl and serve with your favorite crusty bread.







This comfort food goes great on a cold winter night. Then, afterwards, cozy up on the couch with a blanket and a cup of hot tea.

Are you feeling the warmth, yet?

That’s how we roll (snuggle) in the Bold North!
