2013 Build a Better Burger® Contest is Now Open!
Today’s the day! Our 2013 Build a Better Burger® Contest is now open and we’re excited to see all of your delicious recipes! So, gather your ingredients, perfect your burger recipe, host a few tasting sessions, and make sure you enter by September 2nd, 2013.
Want a leg up on the competition? Here are some tips for creating a winning recipe:
Keep Your Recipe Current: Read the latest food magazines and browse Pinterest and see if you can discover a new take on what’s hot. But remember, great taste trumps innovation – creative uses of traditional burger ingredients often work best!
Make Your Recipe Easy to Read: List your ingredients in order of use and include step-by-step preparation directions.
Use Fresh Ingredients: Consider that fresh often tastes the best when choosing ingredients.
Toast or Heat Your Buns: It’s unusual for our judges to go for a tasty burger on a cold bun.
Spend Time on the Name: What’s in a name? Everything! You want your burger recipe to stand out of all the submissions we receive! Just make sure the recipe lives up to the name.
Don’t Repeat a Past Entry: Check out our Burgerbase! While these burger recipes can help give you inspiration, you don’t want yours to be too similar!
Read the Official Rules: We don’t want you to Build a Better Burger to only be disqualified by not following the rules!
Have you followed all these tips and are ready to submit your recipe? Enter online here or mail in your entry (see mailing rules & requirements) by September 2, 2013 and keep a look out for the announcement of our finalists!
