  Directions:

Rub the slices of bread with pieces of roasted garlic or garlic olive oil.  Place slices on a sheet tray and back at 275 degrees for approximately 15 minutes until crispy and golden brown.  Mix the tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, olive oil, and salt & pepper well and let sit for at least 1 hour at room temperature.  Scoop the topping over the toasted bread and ENJOY!

   Chef Mark's Game Winning Tips:

 

First of all stay away from the many traditional Super Bowl fare like chip dip, pizza, chicken wings, pulled pork, cheese dip, etc…

Instead, I suggest a dip of hummus or fresh tomato salsa.

Gluten free pizza crusts with your own fresh toppings like grilled vegetables, fresh tomatoes, basil pesto, fresh herbs, grilled shredded chicken any combination of these will make a great tasting pie.

Fresh vegetables for dipping, but instead of Ranch or blue cheese dressing, use non fat plain Greek yogurt and mix in fresh dill, lemon, chopped scallion, granulated garlic.

Instead of chicken wings deep fried, try baked or grilled organic chicken tenders with some frank's hot sauce to dip.

Sandwiches using gluten free whole grain bread and organic deli meats.

Snack mixes like sprouted seeds and make your own granola.

Fresh fruit with Greek yogurt, air popped popcorn, or pretzels with spicy mustard.
