Beans for Breakfast! A Recipe Contest

Matthew All Recipes, General 0 Comments

That’s right, this contest is all about beans…and breakfast. We love both, so we’re challenging bloggers to combine them and come up with an original recipe suitable for the AM. We’re going to send out Marrow Beans, Mayacoba Beans (aka Canary Beans), and Adzuki Beans and everything else is up to you. Use the beans in any application you want – we just want to see those beans!

Want to throw your hat into the breakfast ring? Here’s how:

  1. Send an email to Katie at kwallace(at)marxfoods(dot)com with your name, mailing address and blog URL by Monday, 2/27. Justin and Katie will pick several bloggers to participate and mail out the beans by Friday, 3/2.
  2. Come up with an original breakfast recipe using at least one of the bean varieties and post the recipe on your blog by Sunday, 3/25. Don’t forget to email Katie the link!
  3. The recipe submissions will be published on the Marx Foods blog and one winner will be chosen.


The breakfast champ will be selected by the Marx Foods staff and announced around 3/28. The lucky blogger will receive a mega Iron Pantry sampler, chock full of ingredients perfect for breakfast, lunch & dinner.

Edit: We’ve been asked what the judging criteria will be – here’s the answer for everyone:

The Short Answer:
Make us drool (more than the other bloggers) to win!

The Long Answer:
Members of the Marx Foods staff will vote for their favorite submissions based on the perceived deliciousness and “breakfastability” of the concept, technique, presentation and (most importantly) flavors displayed in the recipe.

Use of the theme ingredient (beans) will be considered, but mostly just to the extent that we want the winning recipe to prominently feature the beans as an ingredient. You are welcome to transform them and use them however you wish.
