Memorial Day weekend is here, and summer is right around the corner! For the GeeFree team, that means we’re planning delicious outdoor meals so we can make the most of the sunshine and warm weather. Not sure what to pack in your picnic basket? Get a peek at our five favorite puff pastry recipes for your gluten-free picnic!
Cheesy Sesame Crackers
Our Cheesy Sesame Crackers are perfect for outdoor dining, especially when you pair them with your favorite cheese, hummus, spread, or dip. Make a double batch, as these savory crackers disappear quickly!
Franks in a Blanket
Pigs in a blanket are some of our favorite snacks, and these finger foods are so fun to enjoy when dining al fresco. When you pick up a package or two of our Franks in a Blanket, you won’t even have to spend time assembling these gluten-free treats. Just pop them in the oven, grab your favorite dipping sauce, and you’re good to go.
Pigs in a Blanket
Want to add a gourmet touch to your picnic treats? Try this Pigs in a Puff Pastry Blanket recipe from Foodie Crush. Wrap up slices of your family’s favorite hot dogs in puff pastry blankets, and add a few savory herbs like rosemary and thyme. Sprinkle some flaky salt or poppy seeds on top, and enjoy these with some dijon mustard.
Who could say no to puff pastry pizza? These Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels from Bake at Midnite are fun to make and easy to customize. All you need is some puff pastry, a little marinara, some mozzarella cheese, and your choice of pepperoni or Italian sausage. If you have a secret pizza ingredient or two, add it in to make these pizza pinwheels even more irresistible.
Every picnic meal needs a sweet finish, and these Cherry Turnovers from Fab Grandma look deliciously easy. She made them with GeeFree puff pastry and Glutino all-purpose flour, so these fruit-filled turnovers are already gluten-free. Since they’re on the mini side, these cherry turnovers are great for kids, but we have a feeling they’ll win over the adults at your picnic, too.
Mini Blueberry Pies
Spring and summer fruits are ideal for sweet pies and tarts, and the Pioneer Woman’s Mini Blueberry Pies look like a delicious way to highlight blueberries. With just a few sheets of gluten-free puff pastry dough, a couple pints of these sweet berries, and a little sugar, you’ll have a treat that’s easy to transport and a big hit at any outdoor meal.
