Slider Tower

The Kitchen has created a special tower for serving your game day foods. It looks terrific and is disposable too, making for easy clean up. All you need is a few items from the grocery or party store.

The Feltner Brothers' Slider Tower is displayed, as seen on Food Network's The Kitchen, Season 12.

You will need:

  • 8 to 10 plastic party cups (16 ounces)
  • 3 disposable trays in descending diameters
  • Hot glue gun
  • 1 loaf football-shaped bread
  • Slices of white cheese

For the stand:

The number of cups needed will depend on the size of the trays you purchase. Before securing anything with your glue gun, test each layer for stability.

  1. Place 4 to 5 cups upside down in the center of the largest tray.
  2. Place the medium tray in the center on top of the cups.
  3. If it is stable, you can now remove the top tray and affix the cups (upside down) to the largest tray with the hot glue gun.
  4. Secure the medium tray to those cups with the hot glue gun.
  5. Repeat the process with more cups and the smallest tray.

For the "trophy" topper:

  1. Hollow out a hole on the bottom of the bread loaf on an angle. The hole should be wide enough to rest the bread on the bottom of an upside down plastic cup.
  2. Secure the cup upside down in the center of the top tray with the glue gun.
  3. Rest the bread loaf on top (do not glue).
  4. Cut the cheese into strips to resemble the "lacing" on a football. If you want, you can heat the bread and cheese in the oven for a couple of minutes to melt on the cheese--do this before securing it to the cup.

Now you're ready to load it up with game day foods!
