#EatDrinkBeMerry Gluten Free Christmas
There is magic in the air as the dawning of Christmas Day approaches. Smiles abound and Santa is not the only one with a twinkle in his eye. Udi’s Gluten Free certainly is in the Christmas spirit. Scroll down to see how you can win LOTS of prizes from the famed seller of scrumptious gluten free goodies. Udi’s Gluten Free also gifted this Ninja Baker with two big boxes of fantabulous yummies. (After years of only nibbles of bread, I’m now consuming Udi’s Gluten Free Millet Chia every other morning!) Here are a few suggestions to inspire and infuse your Christmas day with the spirit of good cheer.
Dessert First! It's Christmas.
Udi's Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites are bliss...But this Ninja Baker decided to amp up the deliciousness with a swirl of Japanese Plum Wine Frosting.
Japanese Plum Wine Frosting: Whip up the following ingredients in a mixer bowl which has been in the freezer overnight. Fill a decorating bag and pipe the Japanese dessert wine onto the brownie bites.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons Japanese plum wine
- 2 teaspoons whip cream stabilizer
- Drops of pink food coloring
What treats do you leave out for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve?
Whether you spike the milk or not, Santa may become intoxicated by the heady and heavenly cinnamon scent and flavor of Udi's Gluten Free Snickerdoodles!
Cookie Cutter Almond Butter Sandwiches:
Rumbling tummies can be kept a at a low rumble until Christmas dinner.
Why not employ your Christmas cookie cutters to create mini sandwiches? Almond butter with Udi's Gluten Free Millet-Chia Bread is a dream team meal...at any time of day. Of course, Udi's White Sandwich Bread is a pretty stellar choice of gluten free bread, too.
California Tortilla Rolls
California Tortilla Rolls are another perfect way to keep hunger pangs at bay until a classic Christmas dinner. Inspired by California Sushi Rolls, I stuffed a few Udi's Plain Tortillas with Japanese daikon radish sprouts, julienned carrots, avocado slices and lump crab meat.
Casual Holiday Party?
Try Shrimp Wasabi Tomato Pizza.
Foregoing a fancy Christmas party in favor of a casual get-together with friends? Udi's Pizza Crusts are brushed with olive oil, garnished with tomatoes, baked at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Fresh shrimp and wasabi (Japanese sort of horseradish) cream top the party-friendly food.
Wasabi Cream: Combine 1 container (8 ounces) of cream cheese with 1 teaspoon of wasabi powder. Ninja Note: The cream cheese is a great dip for a crudités tray, too.
Udi's Gluten Free French Baguettes served with cold cuts, cheese, nuts, wasabi mayo
and Japanese plum mayo dips will please the sophisticates in the crowd.
Wasabi mayo is made by mixing one teaspoon of wasabi powder with one tablespoon of mayonnaise (Japanese mayonnaise from your closest Asian market is recommended.) Similarly, stir together 1 teaspoon of Japanese plum and perilla paste (available on Amazon) with 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise for the Japanese plum mayo dip.
As the embers in the fireplace flicker and guests have returned home...
The hostess with the mostest may have found she forgot to eat...
How about an Udi's Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bagel or Double Vanilla Muffin?
Win Udi's Gluten Free delights and reward yourself with a well-lived 2014.
