Summer is so close we can almost taste it…and by “it” we mean burgers! National Burger Month is here meaning it’s time to break out the grill, toss on some blended burgers and enter for your chance to win $10,000!
We’re hosting the third annual Blended Burger Contest, and this year, one home cook and one professional* will each be awarded $10K for their winning blended burger. Yep, you read that right! Two winners and $20K up for grabs.
Whether this is your third time entering or you’re new to the competition, there’s no denying that The Blend™ makes a burger better. From a boost in flavor to the added nutritional benefits, The Blend takes your burgers from blah to BAM!
Now through June 25, get those creative juices flowing, the grill fiery hot and cook up a winning blended burger recipe for a chance to win. All submitted recipes will be judged by the end of June. The two winning recipes will then be photographed and included in the November issue of Food Network Magazine.
