Americans have a torturous relationship with lip-smacking, scrumptious burgers from the century. They could not resist a good succulent burger if the patty is grilled perfectly in the charcoal grills. If you are a burger master, its time to create your original spin on a blended burger with finely chopped, fresh mushrooms at home for a chance to win $10,000! This summer, the Mushroom Council and Food Network have been partnered to encourage people to enter their own delicious blended burger recipe in the "Blended Burger Recipe Contest" for a chance to win big. This winning opportunity is open for both home cooks and professionals, so never miss your chance to present your culinary skills.
