Gluten Free Potluck Ideas

It’s not always easy going to potlucks and events with your community and friends and being gluten free.

When someone in your family has celiac disease, there is always a worry.

Will there be enough food for them?

Will there be cross-contamination from serving spoons, people dipping directly into dips, or the accidental drop of food into another container?

Aside from the recipes that I’ll list below, there are a ton of gluten free recipes for a potluck that you can make (or buy).

It doesn’t have to be 100% homemade either.

Gluten Free Storebought Potluck Ideas

There are plenty of storebought items that are gluten free and perfect for bringing to a potluck.

There are also plenty of gluten free pre-made salads and deli items available at most grocery stores, such as quinoa salad or a pasta salad made with gluten-free pasta.

When in doubt, check the label for gluten free certification to ensure that the item is safe for those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease. 

Drinks and Beverage Ideas for Gluten-Free Potluck

Don’t forget the drinks (and while we’re at it, plates and cutlery)! It’s a good idea to have a variety. Even if you don’t drink soda, grab a case or two for your guests.

Keep it simple with potluck beverages with the following:

  • Bottled water
  • Juice boxes
  • Sparkling water
  • Soda
  • Coffee
  • Tea

7 Tips for Potlucks When Gluten Free

You can’t control what others bring to the gathering, whether it’s a church potluck or a birthday party.

What you can control is what you bring and setting up a few safety measures, especially if you’re celiac.

  1. Communicate! Chances are the potluck you’re going to is hosted by someone you know and that someone cares about you. Ask if you can cover the dishes in between uses and set up whatever precautions you can. If you don’t know what’s in a recipe, ask the creator before everyone goes up to eat.
  2. When in doubt, don’t eat it. You won’t be able to go through a list of ingredients at a buffet line, so if there’s soy sauce and the person who made it doesn’t know if it was a gluten-free soy sauce – skip it. There are many foods and ingredients that you’d be surprised have gluten.
  3. Dish up first. If you’re the first to get food, the chances of cross-contamination diminish.
  4. Bring your own gluten-free food, even if it’s more than the one dish required. Make sure you bring something that will fill you (a protein and maybe a veggie tray from the store).
  5. Stash a backpack with some extra snacks, just in case (this is what we’ve had to do for our daughter at weddings, family potlucks, and parties and we’ve used it 100% of the time).
  6. Use dedicated serving spoons and ask people not to use it in any other dish.
  7. Use a guard cover to prevent gluten-containing food from falling in. These serving warmers are perfect for that.

Gluten Free Potluck Recipes

Organizing a potluck can be a fun way to get together with friends and family, but finding gluten free potluck recipes that everyone can enjoy can be a bit challenging.

If you or someone in your group has celiac disease, is gluten intolerant, or you simply want to try something new, coming up with delicious and easy gluten free dishes for a potluck doesn’t have to be hard. 

Whether you’re looking for side dishes, appetizers, or main courses, there are plenty of easy, delicious recipes that are perfect for a potluck here on this list.
