Here's How You Can Make It Delish

Looking for the lowdown on this recipe throw-down? You’ve come to the right place! This page will tell you everything you need to know to stand the best chance of winning the Make It Delish Recipe Contest.

  • Entering

    In order to enter for a chance to win, you’ll need to submit a recipe that includes:

    The monthly secret ingredient

    At least one Buddig and/or Old Wisconsin Product

    The recipe contest runs for three months—October, November and December. Each month brings a new secret ingredient and a new chance to win!

    You can submit as many recipes as you like, but only one can win (e.g. if your recipe is chosen as a winner in October, you won't be able to win again in November or December). Here's the good news, though: all monthly winners automatically become Grand Prize finalists!

  • Recipe Judging

    At the end of each month, we’ll gather all of the recipe submissions and select the best ones to be evaluated by a panel of judges that includes Buddig family members and a trained chef.

    Recipes will be scored on the following criteria:

    • Simplicity: Is your recipe easy to make? Are the directions clear, and are the ingredients easy to find?
    • Creativity: Does your recipe incorporate the secret ingredient and your favorite Buddig or Old Wisconsin products in an interesting way?
    • Flavor: This is a recipe contest, so of course the end result has to taste good!
  • Monthly Prizes

    Each month, the three top scoring recipes will win prizes:

    • 1st Prize $1,000
    • 2nd Prize $500
    • 3rd Prize $250
  • Grand Prize

    After all of the monthly winners (nine total) have been selected, we’ll open voting up to let the general public decide which recipe is truly the cream of the crop.

    The recipe with the most votes will win the
