A Broken Arrow man has won a national recipe contest with his Sea Salt Caramel Bacon Pecan Pie.
Chef and food truck owner Bryan Bennett was one of five winners and on Wednesday he received his prize, a check for $5,000.
Bennett is the South Central winner of the General Mills Neighborhood to Nation Recipe Contest.
He says his winning recipe is a variation of one he created for last year’s Tulsa State Fair.
“That was our deep fried, bacon-wrapped sea salt caramel pecan pie,” he said.
Using Pillsbury pie crust rounds, Bennett has created a kind of pecan pie sandwich.
Bennett also won $1,000 for a charity of his choice. He selected Soldier’s Wish.
