A million bucks and a trip to the “Queen Latifah Show”? Not a bad payday for Glori Spriggs of Henderson, Nev.
Spriggs was the winner of the $1 million grand prize at the 46th Pillsbury Bake-Off, held this week in Las Vegas. Spriggs gets two contacts with TV: Her win was announced by Padma Lakshmi, host of “Top Chef,” and she’ll appear Thursday on “The Queen Latifah Show.”
Spriggs’ winning recipe was Loaded Potato Pinwheels, a potato mixture wrapped in crescent roll dough and baked.
This year, the Bake-Off’s 100 recipes were chosen in three categories, Amazing Doable Dinners, Simple Sweets and Starters and Rise and Shine Breakfasts. Fan could vote online for some of the recipes that made the finals.
