Shake Things Up With Udi’s; Innovative Gluten Free Recipes

By: Leigh Buckley –Udi’s Marketing Coordinator

 

We’ve all got our little routines.   Especially once you find a gluten free favorite (like Udi’s!) it can be hard to stray away from those comfort foods that you know you’ll love.  However, this week we’ve come up with a few ways you can spice up your dishes and tweak your beloved Udi’s into a fun new creation!

 

So if you are looking for a new and original way to use some of your Udi’s products, we have some out of the box ideas that we guarantee you’ll be dying to try.  Go ahead- test your comfort zone…

 

Identity Crisis Muffin Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Udi’s Gluten Free Double Vanilla Muffins
  • ½  Cup Milk of Choice (We used almond to keep it dairy free)
  • ¼  Tablespoons Coconut or Walnut Oil
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 Egg
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Walnuts
  • 6 oz fresh Cherries, pitted and chopped.

 

Instructions:

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Let heat up until water droplets sizzle.
  2. Meanwhile, place your Udi’s Double Vanilla Muffins in a food processor or blender.  Combine until you have fine crumbs.
  3. Add in milk, oil, and egg.  Blend until just combined.  Make sure not to over mix.  For thinner pancakes you can add in extra milk, one tablespoon at a time until you reach desired consistency.
  4. Stir in Walnut pieces and Cherries.
  5. Drop ¼ cup batter at a time onto heated skillet.  Wait until bubbles appear in the middle of pancake and then flip.
  6. Serve immediately with extra cherries and pure maple syrup.

 

Stuffed Brownie Bites

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Spray 2 empty ice cube trays with a light layer of non stick spray.
  2. Remove all brownies from wrappers.
  3. One a time, push a full brownie bite into each ice cube holder and ‘smoosh’ brownie in and around the sides.  There should be a thick layer of brownie that covers the bottom, all the way up the sides of each cube.  Be sure to still leave room in the middle for the ice-cream.
  4. Take a tablespoon of ice-cream and layer into each brownie layered cube.  Drop a few chocolate chips onto the ice cream.
  5. Cover the top of the ice-cream and chocolate chips with another brownie bite (depending on the size of your ice cube tray you may only need half of a brownie bite).  Press brownie down until it is even with the top of the cube.
  6. Repeat quickly, one tray at a time until all cubes are filled.  Place into the freezer immediately.
  7. Keep frozen for at least one hour, until hardened.
  8. Pop out of freezer tray and enjoy!

Tip- if you find it difficult to remove brownie cubes, flip tray over and run under hot water until brownies easily pop out.

 

Double Egg in a Basket Sandwich

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Cut a hole in the middle of each (room-temperature) bread slice with a thinly edged cup.  Place bread circles to the side.  You can use these later for toast.
  3. Melt butter on the skillet, and then place both bread slices with the hole cut out in skillet.
  4. Carefully crack one egg into each bread hole.
  5. Cook egg in bread until it sets and then flip over.
  6. Place one slice of cheese on top of each slice of egg bread and cook an additional one minute, until cheese melts but eggs yolks are still runny.
  7. Remove bread from heat and assemble sandwich with sliced avocado, and tomato.
  8. Cut sandwich in half and enjoy!

 

 

Mini Apple Turnovers

Ingredients:

  • 3 large Udi’s Gluten Free Tortillas (Large Size)
  • 2 Granny Smith Apples
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3 Egg Yolks
  • 1 Full Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk

 

For Sprinkling:

  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon

 

Instructions:

  1. Peel, core, and chop apples.  Place apples, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and lemon juice into large pot.  Heat on the stovetop over medium- high heat for 12-15 minutes until apples are soft and caramelized.  Stir often so no apple pieces burn.
  2. While apples are cooking, use a cookie cutter to cut out 3” round circles from the Tortillas.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. On a greased cookie sheet, arrange half the Tortilla rounds so they are flat.
  5. Spoon in 2 tablespoons of apple mixture over each Tortilla, leaving ¼ inch of tortilla edging.
  6. Brush egg yolks around the edging of each tortilla.
  7. Place the other half of the Tortillas on top of apple mixture and press edging together with a fork.  If needed, brush additional egg yolk along the rim of tortillas.
  8. Mix together the whole egg and milk and brush the tops of each turnover with mixture.  Immediately sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
  9. Bake turnovers for 10-12 minutes until tops of turnovers are golden brown.
  10. Remove from oven and let cool for 15-30 minutes.  Serve plain or with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and extra apples.

    GF Apple Brown Betty – Take canned apple pie filling and add cinnamon. Place spiced pie filling into pie pan. Top with a few butter pieces. Take Udi’s Granola and add some melted butter and cinnamon to it. Add Granola to top of pie filling. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until bubbly. Works for pie and cherry pie filling also. Try different Granolas with different pie filling.
