We're talking the Grand Canyon of ideological rifts.
I have since learned that Wisconsin cooking is all about meat, cheese, and potatoes. And more meat. And more potatoes.
Before my mid west friends are up in arms, I need to share with you that I know this is not true of all in the mid west. That some of you like a nice big salad full of fresh veggies.
All kidding, and 30 pounds aside. I've learned that meat, cheese, and potatoes are pretty danged good!
K even cooked it for us today. I'm such a lucky girl!
Ranch Style Hash
1 lb hamburger, browned and drained
3 1/2 cup tomatoes (or one can diced tomatoes in juice)
1 chopped green pepper
1/2 cup onion
3/4 cup uncooked rice (not minute) -- we used brown so needed to cook this a little longer
1/4 tsp basil
1/2 tsp salt
dash of pepper
pinch of garlic
Simmer all ingredients in a large frying pan for 25 minutes, then top with cheese until melted.
