Vintage Recipe: Hot Dish

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

This recipe is simply named Hot Dish. It is put together quickly and easily and provides a hot tasty meal in a jiffy. The instructions in the original recipe do not specify a time to bake the dish while covered so we have adjusted it. Once in the oven, the ingredients only need to be heated through but please use your best judgement when baking this dish.

The recipe was handwritten on both sides of an index card. It was found in an old large recipe file box. The age of the recipe card is unknown.

The original recipe has been scanned and is transcribed below. It can be printed for use in your own home kitchen. Enjoy!

Please Note: Every effort has been made to transcribe these old recipe cards completely and accurately. Many have faded, are stained, or simply do not include every step or tool used in the process. We have changed the wording in some places and added instruction in others to make the text a bit clearer. We do not test or verify all the information found on these old cards. If you choose use the information found here, please know that you do so at your own risk.
