I have been talking about Game Day Grub a lot lately but let’s be real; its that time of the year people!! Are you ready to host a great Game Day for your family and friends. Over the last year I have found a love for baking and cooking but sometimes I would rather find “semi-homemade” recipes so I can enjoy our company rather than my kitchen.
Well the moment I got home my creative cook that hides in my head jump out! I couldn’t just serve frozen rings and fries! I needed something else, something better, something that my guests would be talking about for days! Guess what – I scored the first touchdown with these little treats that pack a traditional favorite in a perfect onion ring tower! Delicious!
Oh yes friends, you are reading that right….

4. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and stack 3-4 rings (depending on size) on top of each other.

To make these towers Football ready I found some cute football toothpicks that sit perfectly in the Green Bean Casserole. So cute and a total twist on Game Day Grub. I do not know many people that are not fans of Green Bean Casserole so I pretty much think this is a hit for any occasion but it was a huge surprise to our football watching guests.
Since I got creative with the Onion Rings I felt like I HAD to do something creative for those perfect crinkle cut fries. Nom!! I decided to bring a little family culture to our homegating experience and by culture I mean Mayo!!
Time for a little background. Jeremy’s sister moved to Amsterdam close to 12 years ago, since then she has married a native Dutchman and had two adorable kiddos. Well, in Amsterdam there is a slight obsession with Mayo on Fries. You can pretty much find them anywhere when visiting – my mayo loving husband had this on his wishlist of things to do when we visited years ago. So we did it – we put TONS of mayonnaise on our fries and guess what? Fantastic!! To take these Alexia Crinkle Cut French Fries to the next level, I passed on the ketchup, ranch and mustard and went straight for the mayo BUT gave that Mayo a Spanish flair!

2 TBSP water
1/2 tsp saffron threads
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1. In the smallest sauce pan you can find, bring the water and saffron to a boil. Believe me, the water will boil and it will not take long.
2. Once boiling, set aside for 10 minutes to let the saffron release color and flavor.
3. In a small mixing bowl combine mayo, lemon juice and garlic Whisk quickly to combine completely.
4. Gradually add saffron water and whisk together.
5. Use as a dipping sauce or pour over fries. Enjoy!
**make sure you store in refrigerator!

Tisa Theresa Irene says
YUMMY…My green bean casserole has watercress in it for extra crunch and a package of lipton onion soup mix and finally 4 oz cream cheese…..I will so be doing the onion ring stacks with my casserole. My husband will think he went to heaven.
Doing the Green bean stacker tonight YUMMY
Tammy Williams says
how do you keep the green bean stuff from falling out the bottom of the stacker when you remove them from the cookie sheet?
I do not like cream of mushroom soup, or anything else with mushrooms. So I substituted Duke's mayo, because I have always liked green beans with mayo and onions. Tastes delicious.
What a cool idea! Love this – can't wait to try it myself!
yuk…..double yuk! If I'm going to eat calories I want Fresh and Fantastic tasting Food….FFF all the way
Lindsey IEMommy says
