    I grew up with hot dish and couldn't find the recipe. This is it! Have always loved it.

    The recipe is fine but a bit incomplete. For the real Minnesota Lutheran deal you need to add a tad more soy sauce ('bland' is no insult in the midwest, but 'too bland' is), plus canned sliced water chestnuts. (I've also seen it done with some canned bean sprouts tossed in.) This hot dish was ubiquitous at every church 'potluck' dinner I attended as a kid. My mom always brought tomato sauced casseroles, but 2 or 3 ladies could always be relied upon to bring a 'chow mein hot dish' like the one featured here.

    I first had this when I was in school, in Isle, MN, from 6th through 12th,I am 65 by the way, it was one of my favorite hot lunches. When I married I wanted it for my family and by hit and miss I redid the recipe at home and it didn't take too long and I was able to capture it. Brings back some great memories
