The season of barbecues and tailgates is upon us. Oh yes, it's football season! In honor of game time, I'm going to share my favorite gluten-free peach cobbler that can be made on a barbecue or even straight over a campfire, if that's more your style (you rugged caveman, you).
This recipe has been perfected over the years after many, many camping pit stops we've made on the road contemplating, “What can we throw together for a quick, crowd-pleasing snack?” It requires just three ingredients and virtually no planning ahead. You can make this in a large variety of dishes, ranging from strudel-style on a large skillet to gooey-pie-deliciousness in a crock pot. My favorite way is to use a mini cast iron spoon rest/butter-melter/spice roaster. Any of these small dishes are ideal for a personal-sized gluten-free peach cobbler.
You can pick up every item for this recipe at Chevron/Texaco, who we're working with to promote their Game Day Chef Challenge. The contest dares people to incorporate at least one food or beverage item from a Chevron or Texaco station into a game day dish and then submit a photo of it for a chance to win $25,000.
- One package Sahale Snacks Maple Pecans
- One can peaches in heavy syrup
- One vanilla Drumstick
- Crush nuts and fill the bottom of the pan with them.
- Top with three peach slices.
- Cook over a medium-high flame for several minutes.
- Knock coating off of the vanilla Drumstick and add scoop of ice cream onto the gluten-free peach cobbler.
- Let cool slightly and serve.
I've only recently noticed these Sahale Snacks, but they've quickly become my favorite tailgating snack. They include bits of cherries and cinnamon so you get a ton of flavor in this three-ingredient dish, with minimal effort.
It doesn't really matter if you get peaches that are canned in their own juice or in heavy syrup. Topped with a bit of ice cream, this gluten-free peach cobbler is sweet enough either way.
I like my peaches to get a little bit of that charbroiled glaze on them. This happens naturally if you're cooking over a campfire, but over a propane stove you may want to use tongs to move the peach pieces directly onto the grill for just a moment to sear.
You may want to swing by Chevron or Texaco to stock up on nuts and peaches for this gluten-free peach cobbler right now. Those two ingredients, at least, will store just fine in your tailgating bag so you can be ready to impress friends at a moments' notice. Pin this recipe for later, and go create your own!
