The CIM-Muskegon has partnered with Hamburger Mikey to create a featured Hamburger of the Month. Students were challenged in a competition to work in teams of two to create the most delicious and unique burger recipe. Baking and pastry students Christina Curtis and Allison Walters won the contest with the honor of having their burger featured on the menu this month.
Contest rules include:
- Design a bun (incorporate your theme)
- Choose a protein (beef/pork/sausage/mixed)
- Choose a cheese
- Avoid frozen ingredients or anything used in the deep fryer
- Avoid standard combinations such as mushroom/swiss or lettuce/tomato/onion combos
Christina and Allison’s winning burger is comprised of a beef/pork patty, prosciutto, tangy goat cheese, a savory herb mayo, fig jam, and candied walnuts on a Butter Brioche Rosemary Bun from Goober’s Bakery and Pastry Shoppe.

Hamburger Mikey owner, Tim Taylor, chose the winning recipe. “We love seeing our students’ work and creativity being shared with the community,” said Culinary Arts/Baking & Pastry Arts Instructor, Chef Amanda Miller. “We visited Hamburger Mikey’s to see the burger come to life and it is good! I recommend stopping by and ordering the double.”
The CIM Collaboration Burger will be available to customers throughout the month of June.
