Gluten free Halloween party appetizer ideas?!

Question: Gluten free Halloween party appetizer ideas?
Throwing a Halloween party and trying to come up with some good gluten free recipes. I have a guest with an allergy to gluten. I'd like the recipes to have a Halloween theme. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


gluten is found in wheat, rye, barley, kamut and triticale. oats and millet are only considered gluten free if they are grown and processed separately from gluten containing grains (it will say "guaranteed gluten free on the package if they are ok).

the easiest way to do this would probably be to make sure there are fresh fruits and veggies to snack on, and things like plain potato chips and tortilla chips with salsa are usually good, too.

you could do a taco dip... mix sour cream (i actually use tofutti sour cream, cuz my kids are allergic to dairy, too) with taco seasoning (check the label for wheat!), spread in a dish and top with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, shredded cheese, and sliced black olives.

you could also do sliced apples with a fruit dip, like caramel sauce or mix sour cream with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract. add a little at a time til it tastes yummy.

there are lots of gluten free pastas, and frozen pizzas, and all kinds of stuff out there, but a lot of the prepared stuff is really expensive.

sorry that none of these are really "themed" ideas, but i do a lot of plain cooking, just because it's much simpler!

Basically, you can cook pretty much anything as long as you avoid wheat, barley, rye and possibly oats, and watch out for hidden gluten eg in sausages, sauces etc. Other flours and grains/seeds you can use include rice, chickpea, buckwheat, quinoa,

Easy! So cook everything else you would normally cook but watch out if doing cakes, pastry, cookies, breads, batter or breadcrumb coatings, sausages, ready made sauces.

So plenty of choice of things to make, breads and cakes/cookies the main things they might feel excluded from eating- some truly gorgeous gluten free cake and desserts below that all your guests will enjoy.…

I've found a great article on the internet which has some stuff about food for Halloween parties. Check it out.……

I have an allergy to Dairy. It is difficult to find products for people with allergies to it. The best thing to do it go to a bakers and ask if they can personally make you some gluten free halloween cakes.
