Here's the recipe Idaho Senator Larry Craig submitted to be included in a cookbook titled "Congress Cooks!":
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.
