Jimmy Fallon wants to come for dinner at your house when he gets to Minnesota

He wants some proper Minnesota food while he's in town for the Super Bowl.

Attention hotdish fanatics: Jimmy Fallon wants to come to your house for dinner.

The Tonight Show host revealed on Wednesday that ahead of his post-Super Bowl show in Minneapolis on Sunday, he intends to have dinner at someone's house in Minnesota.

Who's house has yet to be decided; he wants Minnesotans to send an email to his show telling him why he should visit their home and what "special recipe" they intend to make.

He made the announcement after briefly introducing his audience to the wonder that is the Jucy Lucy (which Steve Higgins describes as "like a meat hot-pocket").

But rather than tuck into a burger at Matt's Bar, he wants to have dinner in a Minnesotan home, which he'll stream on Facebook Live.

So if you are comfortable with the idea of having millions of viewers seeing the inside of your house and kitchen, send him an email at

But what would you make? Tater tot hotdish is the obvious choice, maybe with some SPAM on the side and a Nut Goodie dessert.

You should probably steer clear of offering lutefisk.
