The Gluten-Free Menu Swap theme this week is Family Favorites. Visit Angela’s Kitchen for the roundup of gluten-free menus and family-favorite meals.
Can I say Family Favorites are my favorite meals to cook? Or, is that redundant? Our favorites are usually simple, quick meals to prepare. Part of the reason it’s so quick for us, is that I make them often enough that I don’t have to use a recipe. I don’t have to watch over the cooking too closely because I already know what to expect. Basically, favorite meals are easy. And, with a busy family schedule, the only thing better than easy is knowing that the whole family will eat it!
In addition to the meals on this week’s menu, I would also include these as family favorites:
- Hamburgers – make your own gluten-free buns or buy a gluten-free favorite (Udi’s)
- Pulled Pork
- Bacon-wrapped Chicken
- Simple Grilled Chicken
- Grilled Steaks
- Roasted Chicken
- Chicken Taquitos
- Pork Tenderloin
- and Leftover Night, because everyone gets to choose their favorites from the week!
For Breakfast, my kids often get to eat gluten-free pancakes and Chocolate Chip Banana Mini-Muffins. But, their favorites, which they would say I don’t make often enough, would be Beignets and Cinnamon Rolls.
Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:
