MN Congressional Delegation Holds 4th Annual Hotdish Contest

Rep. Tim Walz  won the Minnesota Congressional Delegation’s fourth annual hotdish competition this week. It’s the second win in a row for Rep. Walz, who represents the first district spanning the southern border of the state.

hodishSen. Al Franken began the cookoff contest four years ago as a way to bring the delegation together and to celebrate hotdish, the word Minnesotans use for casserole.

Former Congressmen Vin Weber and Gerry Sikorski served as judges who did a blind testing of each dish. Rep. Walz’s winning recipe this year was called  “Turkey Trot Tater Tot Hotdish.” Sen. Amy Klobuchar and  Rep. John Kline tied  for second.  Sen. Klobuchar’s was a dessert called  “’It’s So Cold My Hotdish Froze’ Dessert Hotdish” and Rep. John Kline’s was  “Morning ‘Hot Chow’ Hotdish.”

“Thank you to Senator Franken and his staff for putting this annual, bipartisan event on and for allowing us all to share our hotdish recipes. I’m honored that our Turkey Trot Tater Tot Hotdish won this year, making southern Minnesota back-to-back hotdish champions. The good folks in Worthington who celebrate King Turkey Days should know that, at least for today, turkey reigns supreme in Washington as well,” said winner Rep. Tim Walz in a statement after his big win.

Sen. Franken posted all of the participating recipes on his website. To view them click here and serve with Jello.
