Good Question: What Is The History Of The Hot Dish?

It’s something many Minnesotans grew up with and many still enjoy today: hot dish.

It’s become an annual contest among the state’s congressional delegation. On Wednesday, Sen. Al Franken hosted the 5th annual hot dish competition in Washington, D.C., putting partisanship aside in favor of a culinary tradition. Rep. Betty McCollum’s “Turkey, Sweet Potato, and Wild Rice Hot Dish” took first place.
