My three favourite easy-to-make gluten-free party snacks
With party planning inevitably comes food planning and since quite some people have problems with gluten, I often find it easier to just serve gluten-free party snacks to make sure it´s fine for everyone. So today I am sharing my top 3 gluten-free party snacks with instructions so you can try them out at your next party!
This one is nice to serve at parties, however, I also like to take them as just a quick snack. So, you can either make a few of them for a party/treat or just make a single-serving and get yourself a healthy afternoon snack. These snacks are simple to prepare yet yummy:
- Boil the number of eggs you´re going to need and let them cool down
- Slice them through the middle and carefully scoop out the egg yolk.
- Put the egg yolk in a bowl, add some mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar and salt and pepper and mix it all together with a fork.
- Spoon the mixture back into the egg and voila, you´re done!
Roasted shrimp cocktail
Roasted shrimps are a favourite and this snack is always a success! Here´s what you need to do:
- Preheat your oven to 200°C
- Peel and clean 12-15 shrimps leaving the tail on
- Add 1tbsp olive oil, ½ tsp salt and ½ tsp pepper to the shrimps and mix together.
- Place the shrimps in a baking sheet and roast for about 10 minutes in the oven
- While the shrimps are baking, you can make the dip: mix ½ cup spicy red sauce, ½ ketchup, 2 tsp lemon juice and 3 table spoons horseradish together.
These are fresh, super tasty, easy to prepare and easy to serve. And, as an added benefit, they also look super cute! (Yep, the party decor enthusiast in me also wants something for the eye ;)). Basically, you can put everything on the skewer that you want but my favourite version is quite a simple one:
- Cut mozzarella cheese into little blocks and sprinkle them with a tiny bit of salt and olive oil
- Cut your fresh basil
- Put the cherry tomatoes, mozzarella blocks and fresh basil on a skewer (If you want to make it look extra cute, use some pretty skewers to also add to the decoration! Who says cupcake toppers should only be used for cupcakes?)
If you want to make different versions of the skewers, what about melon with prosciutto ham or mango with feta cheese?
