Now that we’re all rejoicing that Sen. Larry (“I’m not gay, I’m really really not gay”) Craig of Idaho is going to, uh, stick it out in the Senate until 2009 (thus providing endless punchlines), we’d like to share the recipe for Larry’s favorite dish. You’ll think this is satire, but it’s for real. From some Senate recipe collection…remember, cook’s choice!
Super Tuber is a great snack that uses one of my favorite vegetables: The Idaho Potato. Of course, I suppose any type of potato could be used, but I cannot guarantee that a Super Tuber made with anything but a true Idaho potato would taste as good. Sincerely, Larry E. Craig, United States Senator
1 hot dog, cook’s choice
1 Idaho baking potato, 7 to 10 ounces
Mustard for dipping, any style
Other condiments as desired such as cheese sauce, sour cream, chili, chives, bacon pieces or black olives.
Wash and dry potato. Rub with shortening or butter. With an apple corer or small knife, core out the potato center (end to end). Push hot dog through the center. Bake until potato is cooked through.
