Summer is here, and it’s the perfect time to take advantage of those long, sunny days with some outdoor meals. Whether you’re just enjoying the weekend or you’re celebrating a holiday or a birthday, here’s how to plan the ultimate gluten-free cookout.
Franks in a Blanket
No matter what you’re planning for a main dish, GeeFree Franks in a Blanket make for a tasty appetizer or side. Serve these all-beef franks with ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce, and we guarantee that both kids and adults will devour them right away!
Grilled Antipasto Platter
Fire up the grill and heat things up with this Grilled Antipasto Platter from Gluten Free & More. Use veggies straight from your garden or load up your platter with your pick of portobello mushrooms, zucchini, asparagus, and peppers. Add some olives and sundried tomatoes and top it off with some balsamic vinegar for a little extra zest
St. Louis-Style Ribs
Ribs fans won’t want to miss these St. Louis-Style Ribs from Boulder Locavore. Shake on your favorite spice blend, start the ribs in the oven, and finish them on the grill for a perfectly season rack of ribs.
Grain-Free Veggie Burgers
For a meal that truly celebrates veggies, make a batch of these Grain-Free Veggie Burgers from Cotter Crunch. With chickpeas, chopped veggies, and sunflower seeds as a base, these burgers are wonderfully healthy. They even freeze, so you can make ahead of time for impromptu cookouts. Try this King Arthur recipe for Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns, too.
Strawberry Avocado Salad
Every great cookout needs at least a couple of salads to lighten things up, and this sweet and savory Strawberry Avocado Salad is a great way to use juicy summer fruits. Gluten-Free School also has some helpful tips for a safe gluten-free barbecue to ensure that you don’t get glutened while cooking out with friends and family.
With so much great grilled food to enjoy, your crew might not save room for dessert. But who could say no to a slice of this Fruit Pizza from Gluten-Free Homemaker? The fresh kiwi, strawberries, and blueberries make this cool dessert ideal for hot summer days. While the recipe calls for a cookie base, we think it would work perfectly with our puff pastry!
Before you fire up the grill, don’t forget to stock up on our gluten-free puff pastry for homemade franks in a blanket or desserts like baklava and puff pastry pies. Shop the GeeFree online store or use our store locator to find our gluten-free products near you!
