Ring Bologna Hotdish Recipe
I couldn’t call myself a true Minnesotan without having one or two solid hotdish recipes up my sleeve.
What Is Hotdish?
If you’re not familiar, “hotdish” encompasses a range of oven-baked dishes, mostly pasta or rice-based. You may call it casserole where you’re from.
Hotdish can contain various types of meat and vegetables, often flavored with canned soups. Hotdishes show up en masse at church potlucks here in the Midwest.

About The Recipe: Ring Bologna Hotdish
This hotdish recipe is one my mom has been making for decades. There’s nothing fancy or complicated about it. It’s a hearty weeknight meal that will easily feed five.
We love the ring bologna in this hotdish. Feel free to buy traditional or turkey ring bologna – both taste great in this dish.
Hotdish is perfect for the colder months of the year, when it feels good to pre-preheat your oven to keep the kitchen extra toasty warm.
If you’re cooking for a large group and looking for something that doesn’t cost a lot, hotdishes are your golden ticket. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family has over the years!
