Simple Modifications for Making Gluten-Free Holiday Favorites
The Cheese Ball- A small way to make gluten-free guests feel welcome is by providing something as simple as a gluten-free cracker along with the Ritz for your cheese ball. Remember if you are using shredded cheese, make sure it is gluten-free (Kroger brand is great).
The Ham- Honey Baked hams are gluten-free.
Salad- Keep croutons and cheese on the side. Pick up a gluten-free dressing. I like Bolt House Salad Dressing (Available at Monnettes’ Market).
Making something with Mayonnaise- Use Hellmann’s.
Great places to pick up gluten-free goodies in the Toledo area:
Organic Bliss – pick up a cookie, chocolate covered spoons, or candied nuts. This is the best place in town to buy gluten-free fresh baked goods.
Health Foods by Claudia – great for supplies if you are having gluten-free guests over the course of a few days. You can pick up pasta, frozen waffles and great soups.
Kroger – A great place to pick up good gluten-free crackers. I recommend Nut Thins. They can be found in the specialty food section.
Anderson’s- Pick up your gluten-free guests a six-pack of beer. They will appreciate it.
