I was invited to a holiday party and in the footnote it said, "Some gluten free items would be greatly appreciated." I want to be a good guest -- and of course the first thing I thought of was Sake!! Woo hoo!
But I don't eat gluten-free and I'm stumped. Any help out there in Foodie Land?
Thanks so much!

PS - I'm allergic to cheese... so that won't be an option.
Thanks!

Meat or veggie dish.

Unless you want to bake something with sorghum flour.

Being gluten free is really not that hard. I've had to do it for my husband for 6 years now.
Veggies and dip. Chips and salsa. Crock pot Meatballs (use Corn Chex instead of Corn flakes) in chili sauce/cranberry sauce.
Is it appetizers or full meal? I would be able to give you more suggestions if you let me know that part.

We have a certain couple over for dinner often and they are gluten free. Some things we make are a grape jelly/teriyaki glazed salmon with roasted cauliflower and broccoli and I make a side of basmati rice (contains no wheat). Appetizers are usually something like crudites with a dipping sauce, shrimp cocktail, sausage or crab stuffed mushrooms, Hummus and gluten free crackers (I pick them up at Trader Joe's). For dessert, I serve chocolates such as truffles, or chocolate covered strawberries/bananas, or something like creme brulee.

I agree with Mrs. Cool, it's not to tough once you understand the parameters.

Great suggestions. Meatballs are great, I've made them also with gluten-free bread that I made breadcrumbs out of.

Chicken, steak, veggies, all are good. Just stay away from pastas, pastries, things like that.

deviled eggs, hummus with carrot coins & celery sticks, a big bowl of mixed olives, or one of the biggest crowd pleasers I've seen at a party --

several (smallish) cans of roasted cashews, pop the tops and set around the room so one person can't hog it all.

Salad with quinoa added, so yummy. I just had a big salad with feta cheese, kalamata olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, quinoa, Greek salad dressing, peppercinis.

Meatballs - That I can make! And I can start it in a crockpot the night before so I don't have to pay attention to it... thanks!!

Just bought my daughter the "Gluten Free" bible at the Barnes & Noble bargain books section.
Looks like it has some great recipes and the price was very reasonable.
