Flat Iron Burgers with Onion Marmalade, Blue Cheese and Arugula + Mazola Summer Grill Kit Giveaway

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This delicious burger was created for a Mazola Corn Oil promotion. Chances are, you already have a large bottle of their corn oil sitting in your pantry, and that will make it easier for you to re-create this burger for your friends and family. If you don't, I hope you will soon remedy that with a trip to your nearest market. I tend to be a brand loyal customer and the oils I use are no exception. Mazola Corn Oil was used exclusively in this recipe. I used it to grease the grates of my grill, make the amazing purple onion marmalade you see and as an added ingredient in the burgers to keep them moist as they grilled. Did you know that corn oil has a high smoke point and can be used on grill grates to prevent sticking? While I routinely use it for marinades, I also use it in condiments where oil is a required ingredient. Researchers have recently found that corn oil is more effective than extra virgin olive oil in lowering LDL or "bad" cholesterol, so I use this heart healthy oil without concern when I prepare food for the grill. If you'd like to experiment this grilling season, be sure to visit the Mazola website and take a look at some of their unique recipes. As an enticement to do that, Mazola has given me two ultimate summer grilling kits to share with you. Each set contains a bottle of Mazola Corn Oil, a 3 piece Weber stainless steel grill set, a four-way measuring spoon and a Mazola barbecue apron. If you'd like a chance to win one of the kits, simply enter the words Mazola Corn Oil in the comment section of this post and make sure I can contact you if your name is selected  in the drawing on the evening of Sunday, August 3rd. That's all there is to it. Now, on to the work at hand. The recipes I've created for the marmalade and burgers can be found below. Do try them. I think you'll be delighted.
