Cal Poly in Running for Best Campus Blended Burger in U.S., Voters Could Win $1,000

November 2017

Cal Poly’s very own Executive Chef Kline has created a one-of-a-kind burger that is currently part of the James Beard Blended Burger Project : Campus Edition. What is that you might ask? It’s a competition among college campuses where everyone can vote for their school’s creative, healthy and sustainable burger.

Campus Dining Executive Chef Ken Kline works on his hand modeling skills during the filming of a “Tastee” video demonstrating how he builds his newest creation : the Mushroom Buffalo Burger.

Inside this juicy, new menu item at Campus Dining is a blend of 75 percent buffalo with 25 percent portobello mushrooms and a mixture of fresh sage. Top that with agave caramelized onions, arugula, Havarti cheese and fresh sliced tomatoes all between a locally baked whole wheat oat and sesame bun and you have yourself a Mushroom Buffalo Burger!

Not only is this tasty bite packed with flavor, but the sustainably sourced buffalo is higher in protein and lower in fat than beef.

You can show your Cal Poly pride and vote for this delicious burger entry here. In the process, you’ll be entered to win a $1000 gift certificate or $100 Visa card! Let’s support Cal Poly together!
