Breakfast Hot Dish
If you're not from the Upper Midwest, you may not be familiar with hot dish. Traditionally, it's a casserole of starch (often french fries or tots), meat, and vegetables held together by a creamy sauce. "It's an easy way to feed a crowd," says Molly, "and it's perfect for the dead of winter because it's so hearty and warm and comforting." Her update uses sweet potatoes flavored with Aleppo pepper. To get a head start, you can roast the potatoes and brown the sausage a couple of days ahead.
