In this week’s gluten-free meal plan, you’ll find a few recipes that would be great for a Memorial Day gathering or graduation party. I’m taking the coleslaw to a baby shower. And although you can easily buy gluten-free buns, my homemade hamburger buns are soft and moist, and you can freeze the extras.

Main Dish

Chicken Parmesan is always a big hit with my family, and it’s great for serving to company too.

Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes – If you don’t have or don’t want to use a grill for Memorial Day, these sloppy Joes are a delicious substitute for burgers. There are decent gluten-free hamburger buns available to buy, but we love this recipe for homemade buns.

Baked Chicken Tenders – These chicken tenders have a grain free coating which keeps them nice and moist while they bake.

Slow Cooker Mexican Beef Stew – It’s so easy to throw everything into the crock pot, and I love the way the beef in this recipe turns out so tender.

Salmon Cakes – My mom just loves these, so I make them regularly. And homemade tartar sauce is super easy to mix up or try a homemade remoulade sauce.

Biscuit Crust Pizza means there’s no rise time for the crust. The biscuit dough works best in smaller sizes so it’s perfect for individual pizzas.

Sides

Homemade Coleslaw – I honestly can’t get enough of the homemade stuff, and I love taking this to cookouts.

Hamburger Buns – I mentioned these above, but in case you missed it, these buns are soft and moist. And they freeze well too. We use them for burgers or any kind of sandwich. I like to make the buns thick enough to hold a burger but not so thick that it’s hard to take a bite.

Beet Salad – I love what one friend said about this: “I don’t usually like beets, but this is good!” I think the other ingredients in the salad help to balance out the beet flavor. And it’s a beautiful salad!

Breakfast

Baked Oatmeal – Now is the time to enjoy this before the weather gets too hot to bake. You can put it together at night or bake it in the morning. It’s also great for snacks.

Almond Matcha Smoothie – I eat smoothies almost daily once the cold weather passes. They’re great for any meal or snack, but this one is great for getting you going in the morning.

Dessert

Angel Food Cupcakes – I adore angel food cake and these cupcakes are easier to make than a big cake. They’re great for a party too.

Chocolate Coconut Candy – This is a delicious no-bake, no-cook recipe and it’s much healthier than most chocolate candy.

You’ll find recipes for my favorite soup, easy, tender pot roast, stir fry, and other family favorites in this week’s gluten-free meal plan.

Getting dinner on the table every night can be a chore, but it really doesn’t have to be any harder simply because the food needs to be gluten free. I hope this meal plan gives you plenty of ideas to make your week easier.

Slow Cooker Italian Pot Roast – The slow cooker is an easy way to get a moist and tender pot roast.

Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry – This recipe is always a hit with family and friends. For extra tender meat, brine the chicken and then let it marinate for a couple of hours.

Slow Cooker Pork Chops – My husband and son who can be picky about pork both give this recipe a thumbs up.

Salisbury Steak – This is a delicious way to dress up ground beef. I use homemade cream of mushroom soup, which is easy to make and can be made dairy free.

Taco Rice – This is an easy and fun Friday night dinner and a kid-friendly meal.

Sides

Arugula Salad – You can use fresh cooked beets or canned beets for this salad.

Drop Biscuits – These biscuits turn out nice and soft and will cure any bread craving you have.

Breakfast

Pancakes are always a special breakfast treat at our house, and these are delicious.

Zucchini Pancakes – These pancakes are low carb and paleo for a higher protein breakfast.

Dessert

Cinnamon Bundt Cake – This is a delicious cake that only needs a simple glaze on top.

Coconut Macaroons is an easy grain-free dessert.

Slow Cooker Mexican Chili – When I go out of town, my husband loves for me to leave a pot of this chili for him. I always get compliments from non-family too.

Pizza – My family has always loved this homemade gluten-free pizza crust. One son always tells me I should sell it. The recipe makes two thick crusts (rectangular baking sheet and round pizza pan) so you can feed the family and have leftovers. Or you can use the recipe for a single crust. It’s a slightly different recipe, but still really good.

Sides

Ratatouille is one of my favorite vegetable dishes, and it makes the kitchen smell great too!

French Bread – When fresh and still warm (but not hot) from the oven, this bread will make you feel like you aren’t missing out on anything!

Hummus Crusted Chicken requires only three ingredients and is cooked on the stove top for an easy but delicious main dish.

Unstuffed Cabbage – This recipe includes Instant Pot and stove top directions for a delicious meal. If desired you can stir in cooked rice.

Chicken Enchiladas – I use leftover cooked chicken for this recipe. You can cook extra chicken when you make the hummus crusted chicken or pick up a gluten-free rotisserie chicken.

Slow Cooker Ground Beef Stew – Ground beef and veggies are combined in this flavorful dish. You can also add potatoes to the pot or stir in some cooked rice after the stew is done.

Applesauce Muffins – You can try using a gluten-free flour mix in this muffin recipe if you don’t have the individual flours. Use 1 3/4 cups in place of the flours and starch.

Breakfast Sausage – I love making my own sausage using organic ground pork.

Dessert

Lemon Blueberry Trifle – This a delicious dessert that everyone always loves. I recently made it for my husband’s birthday and I increased the amount of blueberry sauce by half. But it’s great either way and would be a nice  Easter dessert.
