The twist to the contest is that all prepared dishes must include bacon, regardless of whether the recipe is intended for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. Contestants are required to bring all items needed for prep, cooking and serving, as well as all items for their table setting. Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place winners in each division. Preregistration is required. Call Mary Lynn at (609) 465-5115 ext. 605 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
