Enjoy a gluten-free breakfast in bed with these Glutino favorites
How awesome is it that Valentine’s Day is on a Saturday this year? That means you can sleep in, stay up late…or even bring your sweetheart breakfast in bed. If you’re wondering what to serve for your gluten-free sweetie, try these delicious, easy to make ideas that feature Glutino breakfast favorites!
English Muffin and Festive Fruit Salad
Toast one Glutino multigrain English muffin according to package directions. Spread butter, Earth Balance (for those who are intolerant to dairy), or peanut butter on the toasted sides of the muffin.
Then, make a fruit salad of luscious red and pink fruits—cubed watermelon, pitted cherries, and sliced strawberries. Serve with hot tea or coffee.
Pancakes and Parfait
Use Glutino’s Gluten Free Pantry instant pancake baking mix to make fluffy, delicious pancakes. This mix is incredibly easy to use—it comes in a plastic jug, and you add cold water, shake it up, and then pour it onto the skillet. Three pancakes is one serving, and there are 4 total servings in the jug. Serve with 100% maple syrup.
Then, in a pretty glass, make a delicious parfait. Layer gluten-free granola (I prefer Udi’s), vanilla yogurt, and fresh strawberries; repeat until you have a couple layers of each in the glass. Serve with coffee or tea.
Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich
With Glutino’s multigrain English muffins, you’ll never miss those old drive-thru morning favorites. All you need to make a delicious homemade breakfast sandwich is a toasted Glutino English muffin, a few strips of cooked bacon (I love the microwaveable Oscar Mayer kind), a fried egg, and a slice of your favorite cheese. Put ‘em all together for a delicious gluten-free sandwich! Serve with a tall glass of orange juice.
Chocolate-Drizzled Strawberry Pancakes
Glutino’s Gluten Free Pantry instant pancake baking mix comes to the rescue again! Make a serving of pancakes, and then add the finishing touches. Melt chocolate chips in a saucepan or the microwave and drizzle the chocolate sauce over the pancakes. Add some sliced strawberries on top and around the sides of the pancakes. Serve with a mug of gluten-free hot cocoa. Voila—a festive and scrumptious Valentine’s breakfast!
No time to make a Valentine’s breakfast? No problem! Glutino still has you covered with other fun treats for your loved one. If your sweetie has a sweet tooth, make a Valentine’s gift basket featuring Glutino’s super-chocolatey Fudge Pretzels and their new Salted Caramel Pretzels; both of these are divine (and slightly addictive). Or if your Valentine prefers savory snacks, you can put bags of Glutino’s Honey Mustard and Buffalo-Style Pretzels in the basket instead.
However you choose to celebrate your Valentine’s Day—and whatever you choose to eat during it—enjoy the day (and the gluten-free treats, too)!
