The holiday season is here, and with it comes the promise of family gatherings and delicious meals. To guarantee everyone walks away happy and full, it’s important to make sure those meals have a little something for everyone, from the dedicated traditionalist to the flavor adventurer.
Whether you’re hosting or just in charge of bringing a family favorite to the table, French’s Crispy Fried Onions have been adding the perfect crunch to traditional holiday meals for decades, so they’re a must-have on your shopping list. Plus, your purchase this holiday season will help provide 1 million family meals through Feeding America.
They’re also an essential ingredient for Green Bean Casserole – a tried-and-true dish that’s a mainstay of any holiday food spread. It’s easy to see why: A creamy mushroom sauce meets tender green beans and an irresistibly crunchy top layer.
Part of the fun is also giving old classics new life. The perfect way to add a little kick in a recipe, French’s Crispy Jalapenos are also great as a snack or on top.
Put them to the test by putting something new on your family’s table: a plate of Jalapeno Bacon Deviled Eggs. From the savory bacon to the sweet relish and the spicy crunch, there are so many reasons why it’s impossible to have just one.
