All opinions are mine alone. #GameTimeGrub #CollectiveBias The big spring sports tournament season is coming up – are you ready?! We don't live very close to any big stadiums or arenas so we like to bring the game to our house with our friends and family around. Xaver loves to cook and entertain so game days are perfect for this – games, sports, fun, and food! Game day food should be fun and easy to eat – one of our favorite things to make is fries and sliders. You can make these no matter where you are or what you team you're cheering for. Here's how to make french fries for game day grub:

Tip: Sprinkle the fries with kosher salt right after baking to give them maximum flavor!

We created an assortment of mini slider burgers to compliment our french fry and onion ring recipes. We made our burgers paleo-friendly by wrapping them in lettuce but you can use Hawaiian rolls or small french rolls to make your own mini sliders if you don't like lettuce-wrapping them. We'll be sharing the slider recipes over on our other blog, Paleo Priests. You can always add fries and onion rings to your sliders too!
