Will the NFC send the San Francisco 49ers or the New York Giants to the Super Bowl? It’s a bi-coastal battle on the field tomorrow that will land only one of these teams in the Midwest to fight for the highest honor in professional football.
Keep those resolutions rolling like a good winning streak and stock your watch party with healthy food disguised as game-day favorites. Only you’ll know that a few calorie corners were cut.
For the 49er fans, nothing says San Francisco like sourdough. Use a fresh loaf of sourdough bread to build these Hot Turkey Club Sandwiches. Deli turkey, turkey bacon, lettuce and tomato are added to sourdough bread toasted with garlic spread. These are simple and will keep every football fan full and satisfied.
For the New York Giants fans, you can’t go wrong with a couple slices of homemade pizza. Use our Easy Whole Wheat Pizza Crust topped with our bold Tomato Basil Sauce and then load it with low-fat mozzarella, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, and Italian turkey sausage. You’ll score points with the entire crowd!
For the referees, put out an appetizer that will keep a dual-team household acting like good sports. Horseradish, Bacon, and Onion Dip uses a few ingredients you probably already have around the house, like onion, low-fat sour cream, and turkey bacon. Fill a platter with fresh vegetable sticks or even some of the toasted sourdough bread for dipping.
