On August 3rd Red Robin began their fifth annual Kids’ Cook-Off which is a contest children ages 6-12 can enter for a chance to win their burger recipe on the Red Robin menu and Red Robin gift cards for one year! The grand prize winner also wins a family trip for 4 to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. This summer debuts last year’s cook-off winner Emma and her winning “Spicy Honey Glazed Bacon Burger.”
I had the chance to preview this delicious burger the day before it hit the menus on August 3rd. Emma’s burger will be on all Red Robin menus until September 12th and from now until September 12th children can enter the cook-off for their burger to be in menus next summer.
I’ve always been a fan of Red Robin, from their Red Robin Royal burger with the over easy fried egg on top, to the bottomless steak fries, you simply can’t go wrong. I have to honestly say, that this spicy honey glazed burger thought up by a four year old, is the BEST burger I have ever had at Red Robin. No joke, it was more than good, it was fantastic! I think it all has to do with the honey cayenne mayo that is on the bun. This sweet, spicy, and creamy sauce adds so much character and extra moisture to the taste of the burger itself. You can’t get a Red Robin burger medium rare like I normally order my burger, but you can get it with “some pink” and with the glaze it was very juicy. The bacon and the havarti cheese were a perfect combo also to accompany the burger.
Another great thing about the Kid’s Cook-Off burger is that fifty cents of each burger ordered will go to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. NCMEC is an organization that Red Robin is passionate about fundraising for. Since 2006, Red Robin has donated over $310,000.00 to this cause through the Kids’ Cook-Off as well as other programs.
The Food Tramp Diaries and Red Robin would like to give one of my readers a chance to win a $10.00 giftcard to Red Robin as well as a burger cookbook, “50 Gourmet Burger Creations From Kids Across the Country”. This will give you a chance to go in and try out Emma’s burger for yourself and give to a great cause. I know you’ll LOVE this burger.
I will be running this giveaway until Saturday midnight. Entry is per usual, follow ALL of these steps and you may enter as many times as you like.
