Have you submitted your recipe for our 2013 Battle of the Burgers yet? If you're still working on it, this Memorial Day is the perfect time to hone your entry -- and snap a photo.
In the meantime, check out the competition with this submission from Lindsay Ames in Vancouver, Canada:
"This burger is not just a piece of meat on a bun. It's an experience for the senses. It's got everything you could want in a meal housed under one sweet, delicious bun. Salty and sweet, hot and cold, soft and crunchy, spicy and refreshing. And an egg. An egg! Multiflavored, texture varied; it's a nod to the food landscape I've been immersed in to since moving to L.A.
"Friends and family have raved. Requests have been made for invitations to attend the next bbq featuring these badass burgers.
"So I figure, if 30 of my friends go nuts gorging on them, chances are some other people might like them too."
Think you can do better? Well, don't just sit there! Show us. Enter our third annual Battle of the Burgers. Submissions end June 3 at 5 p.m.
Go to our L.A. Times Food Facebook page and submit your burger recipe, along with a short essay about why yours is the most amazing burger of all time. Include a photo if you can; voters will want to see proof. (Nancy's photo is pretty tempting!)
We'll take top vote getters and try out the burgers in The Times Test Kitchen. The top five Burgermeisters will get an invite to the Los Angeles Times to have their picture taken with their top burger. We'll feature the photos and recipes in our Daily Dish blog as well as our issue of the L.A. Times Food section that celebrates the Fourth of July. Look for that to come out June 29.
