About This Gluten-Free Recipe Roundup
Everyone loves watching the Superbowl when food is involved! Whether you're in it to cheer for your team, to watch the funny commercials, or to check out whoever is performing at half time, it's a great opportunity to spend time with family or friends and enjoy some yummy dishes.
Inside this gluten-free game day recipe roundup, there are appetizers, main courses, sides, snacks, dips, and sweets - all gluten-free and scrumptious.
And that's why whether you're hosting a superbowl party, attending one, or just making some snacks to watch the game at home, you'll have something delicious and safe to eat!
Tips For Attending A Superbowl Party With Celiac Disease
If you're hosting a Superbowl party, you'll have a lot more control over the food and whether or not it's gluten-free.
But if you are planning to attend a superbowl party with celiac disease, it can get a bit tricky.
So here are some tips to help you enjoy yourself, feel included, and avoid getting accidentally glutened:
- Speak to your host so you can chat about the menu beforehand. The more you know, the less anxious you'll feel because you can anticipate what to expect.
- If you're bringing a dish to share, set some aside for you in a separate container, away from other people's forks, spoons, or fingers. And then you know you have something safe!
- Cross-contact can be prominent in a Superbowl party or game day celebration, especially with finger food, dips, and chips. Ask the host to set some food aside for you, or see if you can be served first.
If you find going to parties & events scary, and aren't sure what to say when eating around other people, the Celiac's Guide to Social Events walks you through saying YES to these invitations with pre-written scripts! Learn more here.

Appetizers are everyone's favorite game-day foods! Sometimes just snacking can be the best part of a Superbowl party or watching the big game.
Gluten-Free Pigs in a Blanket

Gluten-Free Chex Mix
Katie from Wheat by the Wayside has a recipe for that childhood classic - Chex Mix! And since thankfully Chex cereal is gluten-free, you can make a gluten-free version with your favorite crunchy cereal, pretzels, crackers, and a yummy sauce that brings it all together.
Gluten-Free Buffalo Wings
Because it wouldn't be game day without wings, right? Whether you like flats or drums, this recipe uses spices to roast the chicken wings in the oven and then toss them in buffalo sauce and butter at the end. Frank's is gluten-free, by the way! Serve them with ranch or blue cheese and a side of carrots, or maybe some celery.
