Crispy Ranch Daring Tenders

We created these Crispy Ranch Daring Tenders especially for EEEEEATSCON, a food experience built in the spirit of a music festival but with restaurants as the rock stars. Headlining our show are some Daring Tenders coated in crispy, ranch-seasoned hash browns, deep fried and drizzled with a buffalo aioli for some kick. And you can’t forget the backup—these tenders are garnished with a sprinkle of herbs and served with a fresh slaw. Enjoy the show!
