Developed by the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), the Muenster Stuffed Veal Mushroom Burger incorporates the Mushroom Council’s Blend model by mixing finely diced mushrooms into the ground veal patties. After grilling the veal patties to perfection, they’re topped with sautéed mushrooms, adding an extra serving of vegetables, vitamins and nutrients.

To date, 19 national retail chains, representing more than 2,000 stores, are participating in the promotion that will run June 19 through September 6, 2015.

“We are excited to be working with the Beef Checkoff on the veal summer grilling promotion,” says Bart Minor, president of the Mushroom Council. “By working together, we can help consumers understand the appeal and nutrition offered by The Blend and veal. It is a unique opportunity to promote two perimeter departments—meat and produce— with one promotion.”
