~I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Lay’s. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.~
It’s always fun to come up with different ideas for Lay’s potato chips. I remember last year when Lay’s held their “Do Us A Flavor” Contest and introduced us all to Chicken and Waffles, Cheesy Garlic Bread and Sriracha. My teen and I had a lot of fun coming up with different ideas then and I’m really excited that the contest is back! Especially since it is giving everyone a chance at $1 Million Dollars (See Rules)!
The “Do Us A Flavor” Contest can get pretty funny or super tasty and this year you get to choose between the style of chip: Lay’s Original, Lay’s Kettle Cooked and/or Lay’s Wavy. Here is how it works:
- Visit the “Do Us A Flavor” Contest page between now and 10:59pm CST on April 5th, 2014.
- Submit your Flavor Name, Inspiration for the Flavor (in 140 characters or less), Chip Style and Contact Info.
- There are also options for entering via Text, Twitter and Youtube.
The entries will then be judged by a judging panel made up of chefs, foodies and flavor experts that will narrow down the contest submissions on Originality & Creativity, Potential Delicious Flavor and how Simple, Straightforward or Fun it is. The top 4 Entries will be fully developed by Frito-Lay’s culinary experts and unveiled in summer 2014 where consumers can vote on their favorite. The Finalists and the Grand Prize Winner both receive incredible prizes, one of which includes the $1 Million dollar payout option (See Rules)!
I asked my teen what flavor of Lay’s Potato Chip he would make based off recipes from our own kitchen and he picked our Bacon Wrapped Pork Steaks! Here’s the recipe, let me know what you think!
- 2 Pork Steaks
- Season Salt
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Cayenne Pepper
- Olive Oil
- Pat the pork steaks dry and lightly rub season salt on both sides, then do the same with the Worcestershire sauce. Put a pinch of Cayenne Pepper on each one.
- Preheat Oven to 400′ and set a skillet on the stove turning it on Med High. While it is waiting to get hot, wrap each pork steak with a slice of uncooked bacon and then very lightly coat them with Olive Oil.
- When the skillet is hot enough that water ‘rolls’ on it, place the steaks in and cook on each side for 4min. Once finished, remove from skillet, place on a cookie sheet and bake for 7 minutes (or until cooked thoroughly).
- There are not exact measurements for the seasons due to the different sizes of pork steaks.
What about you? Do you have a family favorite dish that could turn into a delicious Lay’s Potato Chip? Who knows, maybe your Grandma’s casserole could be worth a million dollars! Make sure to stop over at Lay’s “Do Us A Flavor” contest and enter before April 5th, 2014!
