Compete in Mezzetta’s National Sandwich Contest for a Chance to Win $25,000

Specialty foods distributor Mezzetta hosts its annual sandwich contest

Will chef Michael Symon's Fried Salami Sandwich Recipe win this year?

The Cook Editors at The Daily Meal are constantly on the search for new and innovative recipes, so we were excited to hear about this sandwich recipe contest in honor of National Sandwich Month. Mezzetta, a specialty foods distributor, hosts the contest in honor of the food holiday every year starting on Memorial Day and closing on Labor Day. In addition to promoting their products, Mezzetta’s contest consists of celebrity chefs such as Chris Cosentino, Jonathan Waxman, and Michael Symon competing with each other to raise money for a charity cause of their choice.

 Sure, a sandwich is a sandwich, but Mezzetta’s yearly competition brings out the diverse and exciting variations of the lunchtime staple. Ever get creative with your Thanksgiving leftovers? Can you make something truly delicious with the scraps you found on the bottom of the freezer drawer? Put your creation to the test. It’s easy to enter; just visit Mezzetta’s website and post a sandwich recipe that uses at least two of Mezzetta’s products. Once you’ve submitted your recipe, share your post on your website, blog, Facebook, or Twitter page and let Mezzetta take it from there to get your recipe some votes. Oh, and, did we forget to mention this? When you submit your recipe, you’re entering to win a grand prize of $25,000.

We know it’s easy to put a sandwich together, but Mezzetta is challenging you to create your most innovative sandwich recipe yet. Visit their website to enter and to learn more about the contest, and while you’re at it, submit your sandwich recipe to The Daily Meal to help satiate our recipe cravings.
