Gluten Free Easter Dinner Ideas

The bread toasts worked perfectly with the spread since they were cut into little triangles, making them easy to grab, spread or dip.

6. Cheesy Chicken Cordon Bleu
Chicken cordon bleu is an American classic.

With Three Baker’s Snackers we put a fun twist on this classic. Get the recipe here >>
