Easy Gluten Free Appetizers

I’m forever getting asked for my fave gluten free appetizers. I don’t know about you, but I’m an appetizer kinda gal. Especially those containing cheese- Mozzarella sticks anyone?

These gluten free spinach puff pastry tarts take a to die for spinach dip and bake it in individual gluten free puff pastry shells. To. Die. For.

Seriously, these little bites are so addictive and so easy to make thanks to Schar’s Gluten Free Puff Pastry Dough.

Gluten Free Puff Pastry

I’ve never tried to make puff pastry from scratch and honestly I probably never will because Schar makes one that is amazing (in my defense I don’t know anyone who makes puff pastry from scratch). I’m lucky enough to have it at the grocery store next to my house. If you can’t find it, be sure to request it!

These Gluten Free Spinach Dip Puff Pastry Tarts are super easy. Be sure to thaw out the puff pastry dough completely or it will be a little brittle. I prefer to thaw it in the microwave, because I find it to be the most pliable. Then fill with spinach dip and bake!

Gluten Free Spinach Dip

The great thing about the spinach dip in these tarts is that you can serve it in the tarts (highly recommend!), but you can also serve it on it’s own with Schar Table crackers or Schar breadsticks. Honestly, it’s so good you could eat it with a spoon.

I also love eating Schar crackers with hummus (or any dip!), on my must try hummus recipes is this Instant Pot Hummus from Everyday Maven.

Do you have a favorite appetizer? A favorite Schar product? Let me know in the comments!

    Isn’t that puff pastry dough SO good! I’m so excited to find some (eventually – Phoenix is a little behind) and make some of my own with dairy-free cheese!

    I love this idea! Spinach dip is always so nice, but can get a little messy when you make it for a crowd. This is such a fun way to keep the mess contained ;P

    Great recipe, thank you. In the ongoing negotiation with my body of what foods will be ok with it, I’m currently going back on Keto for a while. This puts me at more risk from dairy, but improves my headaches a lot. So at the moment this recipe works great for me. I’m pleased that Schar has puff pastry and I will definitely ask local stores to carry it. But until after transition, I’ll stick with the filling, perhaps on hard cooked eggs. I plan to use some local sheep cheese. At least I can be on the right side of A1/A2. 🙂
