Gluten-Free Super Bowl Recipes for Game Day

Gluten-Free Super Bowl Recipes for Game Day

Aside from the actual game of football, the Super Bowl is also known for the commercials, the halftime show, and the food. You can crunch, dip, and graze on all that delicious finger-food nibbles throughout the game. It does get a little trickier when you are living gluten-free. There are loads of hidden (and not so hidden) gluten in those traditional types of appetizers but that doesn’t mean they can’t be made gluten-free. With a little extra effort, you can put together an impressive gluten-free spread, especially with these gluten-free Super Bowl recipes for game day.

We intentionally strayed from the usual wings and nachos type of snacks. We wanted to kick it up a notch and offer food that would make your guests feel like they had eaten a meal rather than just snacking. The Super Bowl Halftime is normally about 20-30 minutes. You don’t want to have to plan a fast dinner during that time if you can avoid it. That time is better spent stretching your legs, catching up with your guests, and preparing for the second half of the game. With this selection of food, no one will be missing dinner.
