Grilled fried baked these are easy and fun. To the 1st. I add a drizzle of balsamic to the 2nd. please take the time to use greek olives and a pinch of oregano. 4th. don't forget the bacon. 5th. just a dollop of mashed avocado. First time I served these it was with just napkins, don't, use plates!!! Have fun..think little spoonfuls of bar b que chili chicken salad..the possibilities are endless!! Thanx for taking the time to read this!raf


I saw the picture for these in a magazine and just winged it with boiled red potatoes that I had on hand. I sliced them then heated in an oven at 350 for 10 mins or so. I topped with olive tapenade and pesto. They were delicious. I will make them per the recipe directions now that I have found it on this site and I am sure that it will be even better. Love that it is a whole foods and gluten free option for people that are eating that way.


Awesome recipes....thank you!!!!!
