End of Summer Picnic Recipe Ideas

This post is sponsored.

The end of summer is here and it’s time for our annual end of summer picnic.

Every year, we like to put together a few fun recipes and head out to a local park to enjoy one last picnic as a family before the season ends. It’s a great way for us to bond as a family, chat about what we’re most excited for in the coming school year, and spend time enjoying tasty food.

End of Summer Picnic Recipe Ideas

We gather the essentials: a picnic blanket, sunscreen, and our picnic food staples.

Buffalo Chicken Roll-Ups

Buffalo Chicken Tortilla Roll-ups

Yield: 40

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken (drained canned chicken will work, too)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo wings sauce
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 4 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine blue cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese and sliced green onions.
  2. Add chicken with buffalo wings sauce.
  3. Lay a tortilla out on a plate and spread an even layer of the chicken and cheese mixture all the way to the edges (about 2 to 3 tbsp).
  4. Roll up tortilla tightly and place on a plate. Repeat until all the ingredients have been used.
  5. Put into the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours.
  6. Slice each rolled tortilla into 1-inch slices, discarding the ends (or eating, like I do).
  7. Enjoy!

Blueberry Lemon Hand Pies

Blueberry Lemon Hand Pies Recipe


Blueberry Lemon Hand Pies

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 15 MINUTES

yield: 24 HAND PIES

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 boxes (14.1 oz each) refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 can (21 oz) blueberry pie filling
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove pie crusts from the package and allow to come to room temperature while you prepare filling.
  2. Dump pie filling in a shallow bowl and add lemon zest. Mix until blended. Set aside.
  3. Unroll pie crusts and cut 6 circles from each crust using a 4-inch biscuit cutter. You may have to re-roll the scraps to get the 6th circle.
  4. Using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop, drop blueberry pie filling into center of each pie crust circle. Fold in half and pinch edges completely. Fold pinched edges over and press with the tines of a fork to seal. Poke hand pie with fork once, to prevent bursting.
  5. Beat egg white in a small bowl until frothy. Brush over the tops of each hand pie. Bake on a parchment paper lined baking sheet (1 inch apart) for about 15 minutes, until browned.
  6. While pies are baking, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth. While pies are still warm on the baking sheet, drizzle glaze over each pie.

Fresh Fruits and Veggies

Rubbermaid Brilliance Lunch Set

They’re so easy to prepare and even easier to bring along in the Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Lunch Salad and Snacks set.

Rubbermaid Brilliance Lunch Set

With customizable insert trays and dividers, I’m able to separate the fruits and the veggies in one container, while keeping the buffalo chicken roll-ups and blueberry lemon hand pies fresh and flavorful in another.

I also love that in addition to keeping our picnic foods fresh for our adventure, Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Lunch containers are 100% leak proof and BPA free. Even with the potential for major blueberry spills from the blueberry lemon hand pies, I don’t have to fret about staining the containers. They’re dishwasher safe and completely stain-resistant.
