Googie Burger features a special burger blend to compete in the James Beard Foundation’s Better Burger Project™

(ATLANTA- June 15, 2015)—Googie Burger debuts today their entry in the James Beard Foundation’s Better Burger Project™. The Better Burger Project™ is an initiative through the James Beard Foundation to improve the burger by blending ground meat with finely chopped mushrooms, creating a more delicious, healthy, and sustainable burger. Blending meat and mushrooms in a burger not only improves flavor, texture and juiciness, it also reduces calories, fat, and sodium while adding important nutrients to the plate like vitamin D, potassium and B vitamins and enhances the restaurant’s menu with sustainable, plant-based items.

Googie’s “Better Burger” is a blend of ground lamb, diced Portobello, and crimini mushrooms with melted Havarti cheese, red onion jam, balsamic tossed mixed greens, and sliced tomatoes on a butter-grilled, corn-dusted Kaiser bun. This burger will be available at Googie until July 31st for $6.95.

In order to compete in the James Beard Foundation’s Better Burger Project ™, Googie Burger wants all customers, partners, employees to vote on Instagram by sharing our Googie Burger “Better Burger,” posting with #BetterBurgerProject. After the contest concludes on July 31, 2015, the five (5) chefs with the most Instagram uploads by consumers will win a trip to New York City in October 2015 to cook their “Better Burgers” at the official welcome reception for the annual JBF Food Conference at the historic James Beard House.
