Holiday Recipe Contest 2019

In conjunction with our annual Christmas Class this year, we thought it would be fun to once again hold our Holiday Recipe Contest. You do not have to be present at the class to enter a recipe and you do not have to enter a recipe to attend the class. The same food, fun and door prizes will still be enjoyed by all who attend our ever popular Christmas Classes.

There will be 6 recipe categories and contestants may enter 2 recipes per household. So choose your signature recipes wisely!

The categories are: Appetizers, Main Dish, Side Dish, Yeast Breads, Quick Breads, and Desserts

How to EnterEMAIL your recipe to with subject line of “Holiday Recipe Contest 2019”

Recipes submitted will use healthy ingredients and will not use any white flour or white sugar. Recipes do not have to be particularly holiday/Christmas related.

Please include the amount of preparation time, the cooking/baking time, the servings made, any tools/gadgets/appliances used (especially if purchased from Bread Beckers), and any special “chef’s notes” if needed.

There is no purchase necessary to enter the contest.

Entries must be submitted by September 15, 2019

All eligible recipes submissions will be compiled by Bread Beckers into a Holiday Recipe Contest 2019 Cookbook to be sold by Bread Beckers.

All recipe submissions become the property of Bread Beckers and can be used at our discretion for promotional use. Entry into this Recipe Contest constitutes your permission and consent, without any further compensation, to use, reproduce, print, publish, distribute, and/or sell for any purpose such submission along with your name given as credit for the recipe. Submission of a recipe also gives Bread Beckers the right to edit, adapt or modify the Submission after the contest, for future use.

Judging of Recipes

All original entries will be kept anonymous to the team of Bread Beckers judges and throughout the testing/judging process. Recipes will be prepared by the Bread Beckers staff and judged by:

1) Ease of following the recipe
2) Overall appeal and presentation of the finished dish
3) Use and incorporation of particular ingredients and products, tools, or equipment sold at Bread Beckers
4) Last but certainly not least – TASTE.

Final Voting

Six recipe finalists will be chosen by the Bread Beckers staff, one from each category, to be the featured dishes served at the Annual Christmas Class. All attendees at the Annual Christmas Classes will then vote to determine the grand prize winner. Votes will be tallied at both Christmas classes and the winning recipes will be announced at the second class.

Not able to attend the class due to schedule or distance?  That’s okay, there will be a special social media voting tool used, closer to the event.  So, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

3-4 of the dishes will be demonstrated during the cooking demo portion of the class.

You do not have to be present to win and you do not have to enter a recipe to enjoy the fun at the Christmas Classes. Again, the same fun, food and door prizes will be had at the class in addition to the contest.

Grand Prize – 1st Place Recipe – $200 Bread Beckers gift certificate
2nd Place Recipe – $100 Bread Beckers gift certificate
3rd and 4th Place Recipe – $50 Bread Beckers gift certificate
5th and 6th Place Recipe – $25 Bread Beckers gift certificate

All contestants will receive a copy of the Holiday Recipe Contest 2019 Cookbook.

Let the fun begin!
