Rep. Tim Walz is the new champion of Minnesota's third annual congressional delegation hotdish cook-off hosted by Sen. Al Franken.

MinnPost reports says Walz takes home official golden casserole dish trophy for his "Hermann the German Hotdish," a concoction of tater tots, bratwurst, cheese and Schell's beer.

This year’s competition was judged by former Minnesota congressmen Vin Weber and Gerry Sikorski, the Duluth News Tribune said.

Last year's winner was a tie between Franken's and former U.S. Congressman Chip Cravaack.
