Klobuchar was among several members of Minnesota's congressional delegation taking part today in a bipartisan "Hot Dish Off" in Washington.

The Democrat says her combination of Tater Tots, pepper jack cheese and "unique taconite hot dish name" gave her the edge.

Democratic Rep. Tim Walz was runner-up with his Chicken Mushroom Wild Rice Hot Dish.

Sen. Al Franken, a Democrat, hosted the competition as a way to bring Minnesota's delegation together at the start of the new session. Other participants included Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann and Rep. Keith Ellison, a Democrat.

The hot dish judges included former Reps. Vin Weber, a Republican, and Gerry Sikorski, a Democrat.
