"Loaded Potato Pinwheels are a great, versatile appetizer," said Jann Atkins, Bake-Off ® Kitchens Manager. "They have a quick prep—minimal chopping—and look great on a party platter. I see these going fast at game day gatherings, holiday parties and potluck dinners, everywhere."

Made simply with seven ingredients, including Pillsbury ® Crescent Recipe Creations ® refrigerated seamless dough sheet and Green Giant ® Seasoned Steamers frozen backyard grilled potatoes, and only 20 minutes of active prep time, this appetizer is a new twist on a family favorite. Of the 100 contest finalists, Glori travelled the shortest distance, less than 20 miles, to compete in the contest finals, but her recipe proved to go the distance with the judging panel.

"We chose Glori's recipe as the grand prize winner because it tastes great, and it's super easy for any home cook to make," said David Joachim, 46th Pillsbury Bake-Off ® Contest Judge, Food Writer and Cooking Editor. "It takes a few familiar flavors and presents them in a way that is portable, fresh and fun."

Glori's recipe also helped her score $10,000 in GE kitchen appliances. She competed against 99 other talented home cooks from around the U.S. in the country's premier cooking competition, sponsored by Pillsbury, Green Giant, The J.M. Smucker Company and GE Appliances, along with event partners Reynolds and Pyrex.

In addition to Glori, second prize winner Shelia Suhan of Scottdale, Penn. received $10,000 and $3,000 in GE kitchen appliances for her Easy Caprese Pizza Bake. Third prize winner Antoinette Leal of Ridgefield, Conn. received $5,000 and $2,000 in GE kitchen appliances for her Cherry Almond Brunch Tart.

Four additional sponsor awards were presented to individual finalists who have not won any other prizes:
