As many foodies appreciate, one burger recipe can be just tastier than another. While there can be much food and ingredient complexity sandwiched between two buns, that first bite needs to make an impression. Is there one cook who can elevate the art of the burger?

Summer and burgers seem to go hand in hand. As the grill adds flavor to that food, everyone has an opinion on the best burger. Whether it is the seasoning in the meat, the style of burger, the perfect combination of condiments, or something else, the opinions are as heated as the flame on the grill. Still, everyone can agree that a great tasting burger is a satisfying bite.

As the summer starts, HEINZ is looking to celebrate the “Art of the Burger.” For one creative person, that creativity will not only earn them a $25,000 prize but also a feature on the BurgerFi menu.

According to HEINZ, this event is more than just another contest. It is about inspiring burger creativity. As Ashleigh Gibson, Head of Marketing & Strategy, HEINZ said, it is about “making their favorite meal even more crave-worthy.” Specifically, this idea celebrates “the best in culinary artistry, encouraging burger enthusiasts to get creative and craft an irresistible work of art.”

Given that 51% of Americans eat a burger at least once a week, the plethora of burger options on the table is tremendous. While some people might prefer just a simple slider with a touch of ketchup to the gigantic bite that takes two hands to manage, the hamburger diversity lends itself to culinary creativity.

Everyone is encouraged to submit their Art of the Burger picture online via or post a photo via social media and tag #HeinzArtBurger and #contest. The event runs through July 15.
