I have been making this scrumptious dip for 25 years, and I can't think of a time where there haven't been multiple requests for the recipe. It's wonderful for the holiday celebrations, sports parties and even brunch buffets.

I first made this filling casserole for a camping trip with friends, adding potatoes and soup to stretch the recipe. It was a big hit. It's a great all-in-one meal that's sure to please your hungry eaters all year-round.
Since my husband raises hogs and my parents produce maple syrup, this recipe's a natural for me! I usually prepare Maple Baked Beans just for us during the winter. In summer, I'll often make it for family picnics and get-togethers.
Wild rice is very abundant in our state, so that's why I think this dish is appropriate for a regional recipe contest. This is an excellent brunch item that I usually serve with fresh muffins and fruit. When you add a steaming cup of Norwegian egg coffee, you have a super Minnesota meal.
Fresh asparagus is the best in the early spring and is wonderful in this recipe. The ham and Dijon mustard add delicious flavor which will help this dish disappear fast.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
