From the "Best in State" recipes, fans will help determine the five "Best in Region" finalists.
The "Best in Region" recipes will be revealed on the Eggland's Best website where EB fans will once again get the chance to vote for America's Best Family Recipe. Fan votes combined with a panel of judges, including co-host of Food Network's "The Kitchen," Jeff Mauro, and Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist, Dawn Jackson Blatner, will then help determine the Grand Prize Winner.
