There were multiple entries and each of the dishes was tasted by the staff. (Yum!! We had LOTS of volunteer judges sampling each dish), we had 2 winning recipes this year.
The winners were Loaded Mashed Potatoes by Claudia in our personal insurance department, the recipe is below, and Sweet Potato Pie made by Tana in our benefits department – this recipe can be found at our Restaurant and Bar insurance website: www.barrestaurantinsurance.com.
