Gluten free party food – usually a nightmare for coeliacs, and you could always forget about anything beige, because it was probably rampant with gluten. BUT my friends, gone are those days! Because beige is BACK when it comes to gluten free party food!

Supermarkets are coating things left, right and centre in gluten free breadcrumbs, putting those beautiful golden beauties right back on the table. Literally.

As Christmas fast approaches, I set myself the job of taste testing all the gluten free party food on the shelves to find you the best in breadcrumbs for 2019. And just for fun, I’ve updated this original list from 2017 and added a few non-breaded, but still beautifully beige, additions too!

Here’s my pick of my favourite gluten free party foods this Christmas…

Tesco mozzarella sticks

Stringy mozzarella with a tomato centre, coated in a gluten free breadcrumb. What’s not to love? They’re basically a gluten free, inside-out pizza. Goals.

Co-op gluten free spring rolls

These Co-op gluten free spring rolls were a firm favourite of mine last year and they’re just as magical this year. Awesome served with a gluten free soy sauce or sweet chilli dip. They’re in the frozen party food aisle.

Marks and Spencer mini chicken and garlic kievs

It’s brilliant to see some gluten free and vegan party food – most seems to be cheese or meat based! These BBQ jackfruit loaded rostis sound super interesting.
