Franken Releases Hotdish Cookbook

If you missed the Minnesota congressional delegation’s annual “Hotdish Cook Off” last month, now you can try some of the recipes at home.

Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., released a full-color cookbook of recipes from the 2013 hotdish contest Friday. Hotdish casseroles are a Minnesota tradition. HOH covered the contest, including reactions from some staffers to the abundance of calories.

The recipes include the contest winner, “Hermann the German Hotdish” from Democratic Rep. Tim Walz. Walz’s dish features brats, beer and tater tots.

The “Hormel ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not SPAM’ Pepperoni Pizza Hotdish” offered by Minnesota’s senior Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar is a similarly fantastic concoction. It includes lots of ground beef, pepperoni, cheese and tomato sauce.

No word on the recipe for the chocolate dessert that HOH spotted at the event.

You can read all the recipes and download the cookbook for yourself here.
