I have appetizer writer's block
Please help me :-) I am supposed to bring an appetizer or two for a family gathering and I am just blanking on the possibilities.
There are SERIOUS gluten issues in the family, so GF ideas only.
This is not a big-heavy-appetizers group - lighter/smaller seems to go over better. "healthy" things are generally good
The main meal is pulled pork and picnic-y salads.
Anything requiring a plate or utensil is probably a no go.
I will need to buy ingredients, prep, make, and transport (1hour) by myself as DH will be at work. So easy, makeahead stuff is key here.
The only things I can come up with are tomato/mozz/basil on sticks, or hummus and veggies. I know there are more interesting ideas out there, but it's Friday and even Pinterest is too much for me...
Re: I have appetizer writer's block
For picnics, I like to do stuff on skewers. There's the tom/basil/mozz like you already said, but there is also chorizo/manchego/grape as well as feta/tomato/cucumber/black olive.
I also like to do break chunks on skewer with a leaf of mint or basil and either brie cheese slice or prosciutto.
They are all prep ahead, and you are just cutting and assembling. I did an entire party's worth in 90 minutes of naptime prep.
Bruschetta made on gluten free somethings (rice cracker?)
Deviled eggs. Ohhh yeaaa!
I have a recipe for a watermelon salad, unusual combo of ingredients but tasted good.
If there are devilled eggs, that's where I'm going to be. Just sayin.
