Allergy-friendly company: "Nutrimom, we would love to hear what kinds of ideas you get when you see our products! We've seen what you've done in the past and would love to know what you have in mind for us as well."
Me: "I have no clue.".....crickets. Fast forward to me trying to explain and still sound professional that I cannot pre-plan anything- my brain works the way it works, I am used to it and they need to just trust me. I am lucky enough that these companies do just say ok.
My Latest Recipe Ideas
Last year,I attended a Gluten and Allergen Free Expo in Georgia (pics here!) and I first tasted Smart Flour Foods gluten free pizza....oh my GAWH!!!! My family and I quietly circled the booth many times in an effort to eat as much of it as we could without looking tacky. Then I broke down and introduced myself to one of the company peeps so, of course, I then instructed my children to ask for more samples. You know how kids can be!
My first few recipes were fun to do (click HERE and HERE if you missed them) but recently, I had another ah-ha moment so off to the kitchen I went. What else can you do with a gluten free pizza crust? How about some Smart Stix! I came up with five varieties but obviously, the possibilities are endless.
Buffalo Pretzel Stix
Defrost a package of Smart Flour Foods pizza crusts and slice into thin "stix". Preheat the oven as directed on the package and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Simply spray generously with Winona Pure Popcorn Butter spray and sprinkle with crushed Glutino Buffalo Style pretzels. For a spicier version, add a touch of cayenne pepper. Bake until crisp (approximately 8 minutes) and store for up to 2 days in an airtight container. I will mention that they are very crunchy so do not overcook them.
*Mom Tip- You will have pretzel crumbs leftover on the baking tray- don't throw them away! Save them and use them for a yummy gluten free coating for chicken, fish or whatever else you need too.
