Help! Need gluten-free Recipes To Travel / Hors D'oeuvres

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

On Saturday I am staying at a hotel with 3 friends. I have an event the next day, so I don't want to risk a restaurant. The hotel is only an hour away from my house, so I don't have to worry about food spoiling, I just won't be able to heat anything up in the hotel. We were thinking finger food so that we don't have to worry about plates, utensils etc.

Does anyone have good gluten-free hors d'oeuvres ideas that would be filling enough for dinner?

So far I have come up with:

Cheese & Crackers

Hummus

Carrots

Celery

But as you can see - this is not very filling for dinner! Anyone else have ideas? Vegetarian options would be great, too.

I like the gluten-free banana bread idea. :)

If you can eat eggs, you could make a platter of deviled eggs, easy to make gluten-free.

I recently made a smoked salmon dip to serve with rice crackers at a gluten-free picnic. It went quick.

~4 oz smoked pacific salmon, flaked. (I sometimes make my own by marinating the salmon with 1.5 tsp liquid smoke, salt & pepper overnight. Cook in a lightly greased pan @ med high heat 2-3 minutes each side till flaky, but not overdone)

~3-4 oz cream cheese

3/4-1 cup finely diced white onion

1.5-2 tsp lemon juice (to taste)

Salt & Pepper (to taste)

Cayenne pepper for some kick if you want

Mix well into a pate & refridgerate before serving.

Sliced lunchmeat and cheese (the prepackaged kinds, like Oscar Mayer) can be rolled up and eaten with fingers or toothpicks, or wrap in corn tortillas or lettuce leaves.

BLT stuffed cherry tomatoes. If you do a search online you'll come up with a variety of recipes.

Basically you cut the tops off of some cherry tomatoes then use a melon baller or small spoon to scoop out the insides. Turn upside down on paper towels and let drain for a little while.

The filling is crisply cooked bacon, crumbled and mixed with mayo and some sliced creen onions. Some recipes call for parmesan cheese in this.

Fill the tomatoes and if desired, put the caps back on. Secure with frilled toothpicks. Place on a bed of parsley to keep them from rolling around.

Some pepperoni sticks and beef jerky is gluten-free. When we travel in the car, I usually bring along Oberto original beef jerky for my daughter. Just in case the fruits and veggies you're planning aren't filling enough and you need a little protein. These store easily too.

For breakfast, go w/ the banana nut bread or something similar. Zucchini bread, pumpkin bread, etc.. Seems like Pamela's has a gingerbread mix that can be used for a zucchini bread (recipe adaptation might even be on the side of the package, if I remember right). Boiled eggs last forever too. Dole's pre-packaged fruits are easy to cart around with you, but their yogurt-mixed fruit cups were not gluten-free last I heard. Just the plain fruit is gluten-free.

For gatherings, our kids beg Grandma to make "Thingees".Take an extra long toothpick and thread with a chunk of pineapple, an olive, a chunk of cheese and a chunk of meat. We make them our favorite way and so can you. The meat and cheese make it filling. We all fight over them!
