Everyone loves a picnic because they focus around one important thing, food! We’ve shared some of our favourite picnic recipes to give you some inspiration this summer. Whether it’s a picnic in the park with friends, a family-friendly gathering in the garden or a blanket rolled out in front of the tv when the weather is a bit grey, the food will be delicious!

Vegetarian Empanadas

These Vegetarian Empanadas are really quick to make and are made even easier using ready-made puff pastry. We’ve filled ours with butternut squash and red onion but you can fill yours with anything that takes your fancy. Enjoy them cold or heat through before wrapping in tin foil to enjoy at your picnic.

Sausage & Veg Mini Rolls

A veggie-packed twist on the classic sausage roll! Our recipe makes 4 large rolls but you can easily make a batch of mini ones, just simply place smaller amounts of the filling on to the pastry, ensuring to leave enough space to fold the pastry to make the roll.

Traybake Frittata Bites

A great one for the kids to join in with. Make their favourite shapes using a knife (supervised of course!) or cutters to make it extra fun. A frittata is a great way to use up any leftover bits in the fridge, anything goes!

A tasty veggie version of the classic scotch egg made with a flavourful falafel. We’ve made two options in this recipe, the classic hard-boiled egg or roasted beetroot to compliment the fragrant falafel. Perfect to pop in your picnic basket or even for a light lunch in the garden.
