Stretching my 15 minutes

Johnsonville Sausage Logo     Many of my friends already know that I was lucky enough to win the 2011 Johnsonville “No Ordinary Burger” cooking contest, co-sponsored by  the National Pork Board and Walmart, last October.

What a fun experience!

Now, to stretch my 15 minutes another minute and a half, I will have my mug and winning recipe plastered all over the packaging for Johnsonville’s Brat Burgers this summer. It’s pretty exciting to think that I’ll be scaring people all over North America when they pick up a box of brat burgers and turn it over to see what’s on the other side.

Anyway, I just did a photo shoot with the talented Debbie Jourdan, of Jourdan Photography, this week and sent the pictures in for the keen decision makers at Johnsonville to decide which picture they would like to use for the promotion. Here are the pictures submitted. What do you think?

And here’s one that probably WON’T make the product placement award…

Goofy picture from the Johnsonville photo shoot.

Here are a few pictures from the whole experience.

My burger is the one on the right…
