Most snack-type foods are or can easily be made gluten free (think corn tortilla chips, traditional hummus and salsas, guacamole, veggie trays, fruit and popcorn), but why not think beyond the ordinary and try some new products, recipes and flavors?
Share these new gluten free party recipes and foods with your friends, and you just might win them over to your team! Gluten-free food can and should be as good (if not better!) than “regular” foods, so make everything GF and everyone can eat it.
Grill it or bake it, make it thick or thin crust, and top it with whatever your crowd likes and everyone’s happy! Or turn the dough into gluten free calzones, gluten free pizza rolls or even gluten free baguettes to go with your favorite dips.
The same mix makes incredible gluten free baguettes for oil & vinegar dipping or for making the best hoagies ever.
So get your game face on and pick from this menu of ideas to suit your tastes. I’ve given you recipes, links and some of my favorite new and old gluten-free brands to get you started. From fancy to fast … it’s all here, folks.
Bring on the party!
