Dips

Although dips do not seem like places where gluten products can be hiding, there can be flavorings and additives that contain gluten. Marzetti makes a variety of dips from Blue Cheese and Dill Veggie Dips, Fat Free and Organic Ranch dips, as well as all of its fruit dips. While Hiland Dairy produces gluten-free French Onion, Vegetable and Southwest Ranch Dip.

Chips

Chips are another essential, but gluten can creep into many kinds of chips. You can make your own spinach chips but POPChips and Kettle make a wide variety of gluten-free potato chips. Synders of Hanover’s has created Gluten-free Pretzel sticks, while Food Should Taste Good makes all kinds of chips from tortilla to potato to multigrain chips. These brands allow those gluten-free to continue to dip with freedom.

Crackers

Most times crackers contain carbs and wheat, but there are a ton of different crackers on the market made with alternative ingredients produced by companies like Blue Diamond Nut Thins and Kale Crackers. Glutino, Foods Alive, Mary’s Gone Crackers and Crunchmaster are brands that produce yummy gluten-less crackers perfect for that game day dip.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are an awesome source of nutrients and lack gluten. Whip up some of your own baked sweet potato fries and serve them with gluten-free condiments. Or roast some sweet potatoes with a light drizzle of olive oil, salt, garlic powder and a smidge of cayenne pepper for something a little more sophisticated at your Super Bowl party.

Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is a protein packed grain, without gluten. And a great thing about a quinoa salad is that it is totally customizable to the occasion. It can be light, prepared with cucumbers, corn, tomatoes and mint, or heartier, served with roasted squash, eggplant and asparagus pieces. Most fresh fruits and veggies are gluten-free but canned and frozen varieties should be checked.

Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard boiled eggs can be an excellent party snack, because they are easy to make, eat and even dress up. You can stick to good ol’ devilled eggs, but make sure that none of the condiments used have gluten. Filling the egg white cup with a homemade pico de gallo or avocado salad or your favorite gluten-free dips can add a little spice.

Hotdogs

Hotdogs are staples, from the baseball park to parties at home. Even though they are mostly meat, people with gluten sensitivities should be careful, as fillers and even casings can contain gluten. Applegate Farms, Dietz and Watson and Sabrett are brands that produce gluten-free hotdog.

Chili

Chili is a classic Super Bowl party dish — hearty and filling, but not something the gluten sensitive have to give up. Try a three bean gluten-free vegan chili. For an extra punch and delicious game day meal serve it with black pepper corn bread.

Sweet Things

What’s a Super Bowl party without a sweet ending (other than your team winning the championship)? Those chocolate chip cookies and lemon pound cake are loaded with gluten. To satisfy that sweet tooth, try gluten-free whoopie pies or gluten-free peanut butter and jelly cookies or gluten-free Cookie Trail Mix . For a lighter approach, try fruit kebabs. Skewer your favorite fresh fruits, and pair them with Marzetti gluten-free fruit dips

There is no way around pizza on game day. It’s that fuss free essential, but to those who suffer from gluten sensitivities it can be a nightmare. There are a variety of gluten-free pizza crust options now, so even the most sensitive can indulge in these carb-y delights. Step it up a notch with fancy fixings like a chicken, peach, blue cheese and arugula pizzetta or a hummus and veggie pizzettas.
