Vote For My Perfect Bacon Mushroom Burger!

The Perfect 3 on the Cooking Channel

I recently submitted a recipe for the Perfect Bacon Mushroom Burger to Cooking Channel’s new series The Perfect 3 hosted by Kelsey Nixon.  Well, it’s down to just three burgers and mine is one of them.  The winner gets to fly to NYC to tape a segment with Kelsey showing how to make their recipe.  It would be a gross understatement to say that I would appreciate your vote.  HERE is the link.  I think you can vote as much as you want but they probably only count one a day.

I call it the Perfect Bacon Mushroom Burger because I have come up with a technique that guarantees bacon and mushroom in every bite.  By covering the top of the patty with pancetta bits held on by aged Swiss cheese I insure bacon with each bite.  By wrapping the meat around a whole portabella mushroom cap I insure mushroom in every bite.  Here’s a pic of the finished product cut in half to show the layers of love.

Cooking Channel Is Looking For Perfect Recipes

The Perfect 3 Recipe Contest

A wise man once said that perfection is a journey, not a destination. Well, he never tasted my Perfect Bacon Mushroom Burger.  But soon the folks at the Cooking Channel will.  Heading into its second season, the network is launching a new show called The Perfect 3.  Though there is a little mystery as to just what the format of the new show will be my guess is it will involve viewers sharing their perfect recipes.

I base this on the Cooking Channel’s new Perfect 3 Recipe Contest.  Here’s the gist:

Kelsey NixonHave you perfected pie? Is your burger the best? Are your cookies unrivaled? Now is your chance to prove it. We’re looking for our fans’ perfect recipes in 13 different categories: cookies, brownies, pies, burgers, tacos, sandwiches, pancakes, salads, hot and spicy chili, cakes, potatoes, chicken and exotic dishes. Share your original recipe for one of the 13 categories for an opportunity to win a trip to New York City to meet Kelsey Nixon and create a short Web video about your winning recipe. Your video will be part of our upcoming summer television show, The Perfect 3.

Simply download their Recipe Submission Form, fill it out with your original recipe that fits in one of the 13 categories, and e-mail it along with a photo of the recipe to perfect@cookingchanneltv.com. That’s it! You’re entered.

That’s some pretty nifty swag – free trip to the Big Apple, your own segment on a national cooking show and the chance to tell Kelsey in person that she was robbed on NFNS 4.  The regulations are pretty straight forward but if you have any questions check out the official rules.  But again, I warn you, if your idea is for a bacon mushroom burger don’t waste your time.  That category is as good as won.  Lockbox.
