At this summer's Oregon State Fair, Barhyte Specialty Foods, along with Roxy Dawgs, teamed up to sponsor a super fun hot dog topping contest. Roxy Dawgs provided the hot dogs and buns (both great quality!) while we sent each participant a sampling of any six Saucy Mama or Suzie's products. The contestants worked on their recipes at home and brought in their finalist to the Creative Living Stage. They were judged live on stage by Curtis Fisher, owner of Roxy Dawgs. Barhyte supplied the top three winners with beautiful gift baskets.
Pictured here is Paul Ingraham, the first place (or should we say "blue ribbon"!) winner. His fresh pear slaw recipe was refreshing on such a warm day at the fair and the crunch was such a nice bonus on top of the hot dog.
