    Gluten Free Appetizers

    Nice to have some Gluten Free Nibbles, that everyone likes

    We had friends over for drinks last night and we have a coeliac in our midst
    I really didn't want to go out to the shops, so I made do with things that I had on hand

    First Prawns on Potato Slices
    I want give amount that is entirely up to you

    Peel and slice thinly in the food processor as many potatoes as you wish
    Bring to the boil in salted water and cook for about 5 minutes
    Don't over cook or they will fall apart
    Drain and cool
    Pre-heat oven to 200C
    Spray a baking sheet using an olive oil spray
    Layer potatoes on tray
    Spray the potatoes with the spray as well

    Cook till just starting to crisp up
    Cool on a rack

    Meanwhile cook some prawns click here on best way to cook them
    I also made some mayonnaise
    I wanted to make sure that it was gluten free

    Simple to assemble
    Place some mayo on the potatoes and pop a prawn on top
    I didn't have any herbs for some colour, some chopped parsley would be nice over the top

    Then the Proverbial Cheese and Pineapple on Toothpicks
    Stuck into an orange, at every party in the 50's and 60's
    Bit hard with Brie normally done with cheddar
    So I just laid them on a plate
    Small wedges of brie cheese, with a piece of pineapple on top

    Of course I had cooked too many potatoes
    That's easy, pop them into a nice container and just eat them as they are homemade chippies
    All washed down with delicious wines
