French’s, ACF Launch French Fried Onion Recipe Contest



French’s Foodservice is partnering with the American Culinary Federation to launch a recipe contest for French’s French Fried Onions. ACF chefs can enter their favorite French’s French Fried Onion creations for the chance to win prizes until Nov. 16.

Three winners will be selected, with the grand-prize winner receiving $2,000. The second-place winner will receive $1,000, and a third-place winner will receive $500. To qualify, recipes must include French’s French Fried Onions and fall into one of three categories — appetizer, sandwich or entrée. Top chefs from The Food Channel will judge the submitted recipes on a variety of criteria, including taste, aroma, texture and creativity.

“For years, chefs in restaurants and homes have used French’s French Fried Onions as an ingredient in the classic green bean casserole. It has become a Thanksgiving staple since its creation. We would like to see chefs use French’s French Fried Onions in a unique new way that could very well become the next big tradition for French’s,” says Jo’el Ellis, senior brand manager for French’s.

For recipe contest details and to upload your recipes, log on to Recipe entries can also be mailed to FFO Recipe Contest; 2215 West Chesterfield Blvd, Springfield, MO 65807.
