Easy Gluten Free Tailgating Recipes for Football Season

Well, it’s officially here.  No not fall (although it’s not far behind) – it’s FOOTBALL SEASON and tomorrow is National Tailgating Day! 

If you’ve been a reader for a while then you know that I absolutely LOVE football and LOVE allll the food that comes along with it.  

SO, in the spirit of my favorite season and keeping the spread allergy friendly, I figured I’d round up my favorite easy recipes! 

Easy Gluten Free Recipes for Tailgating this Football Season

Black Bean & Mushroom “Meatballs”

Black Bean and Mushroom Meatballs

By far my most shared recipe to date, with over 17k pins, these meatless “meatballs” are anything but dull and boring.  Whip some up to share as an appetizer or serve them along with some marinara sauce and some pasta for an extra hearty dish. 

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites


If you want the taste and experience of buffalo chicken wings without the chicken then these vegan buffalo bites are for you.  They’re super simple to make and offer all spicy goodness of the buffalo flavor without the meat. 

Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potaotes

If you’re a fan of southwest flavors and love sweet potatoes then this stuffed spud is for you.  Spiced with cumin and cajun and topped with avocado, black beans and sriracha, it delivers a ton of flavor that’s totally meat-free.

Spicy Buffalo Carrot Fritters

Spicy Buffalo Carrot Fritters {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

They’re gluten free, dairy free and pretty darn delicious. 

Sweet & Spicy Buffalo Wing Popcorn


It’s spicy, it’s sweet and soon it will be your game day favorite. 

Paleo Sweet Potato Sliders

Paleo Sweet Potato Sliders {Gluten Free, Dinner, Football Snacks, Football Food, Tailgating Party, Sweet Potato Buns, Foodie Friday}

Who needs buns when you have sweet potatoes? 😉
