After a dominant run by the USA, a foreign power finally ended the American stranglehold on the Monday Night Potluck podium.
Adam Sunderland's Portuguese Meatballs brought the MNP title back to Portugal, its 46 point effort claiming a resounding victory.
Cathy Griffin also made waves at her first potluck, becoming the first potlucker in MNP history to take two spots on the podium. Griffin's Mud Pie (29 points) and Mighty Meaty Manicotti (24 points, and which also came with a Might Meatless version) took second and third, respectively.
"A truly special performance for a potluck rookie," bartender Dr. Buckets said. "There's some real talent there."
But on a night that included a near-record 25 dishes, nothing could touch Portuguese Meatballs.
"I've never been to Portugal and never had their meatballs," one anonymous potlucker said. "But this is how they've tasted in my dreams."
