Looking for gluten-free or dairy-free game day appetizers or main dishes for watching sports or maybe the Super Bowl? Look no further with these 21 delicious recipes!
With the Super Bowl just around the corner, I had email come through yesterday asking for game day appetizers and mains that are both gluten and dairy-free.
Even though I’m not one for watching sports (I know, I know), I’m never one to shy away from a good get-together that involves good food.
I’ve rounded up 21 delicious gluten and dairy-free game day appetizers and main dishes that are perfect for bringing to a party.
Whether you’re headed to a game day party or just want to have some delicious appetizers and mains from the comfort of your own home, I hope you find something in this roundup that you love.

Chicken taquitos are surprisingly simple to make at home, and it’s easy to make them dairy-free too.

These are so easy and delicious, plus you can get creative with your salsas and dips.
21. Baked potato bar
Baked potato bars are great when you’re hosting or serving food for game day. Why?
Because you can put out toppings that run the gamut of everyone’s needs. You can make a normal cheese sauce, and a dairy-free cheese sauce.
You can put out bacon, ham (make sure these are gluten-free!), steamed broccoli or other greens, and dairy-free sour cream to let everyone pick and choose what they want to put on their spuds.
I hope that this roundup has been useful for you and the next time you find yourself hosting or going to a friend’s house for game day, you have a few great gluten and dairy-free recipes to try out.
