Gluten Free Game Day Fare! Super Bowl Perfect Recipes Featuring Brazi Bites & Kam’s Kettle Cooked
I can’t believe how Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner! I love trying out new recipes that are perfect for eating in front of the TV. When I was asked to share these recipes with you, I couldn’t wait to try them out myself.
I tried Brazi Bites and absolutely loved them, the boys loved them too. They have so many delicious flavors which makes them perfect for anything. My favorite ones however were the Cheddar & Parmesan Brazi Bites. The boys loved the Pizza Brazi Bites and my hunny loved the Zesty Pepper Jack. The Garlic Asiago Brazi Bites are perfect for lasagna nights at our house!
No matter which team you are rooting for this year, serve up these gluten free and bourbon inspired sliders and dogs that will have everyone cheering! I am thankful to Brazi Bites & Kam’s Kettle Cooked for allowing me to share both recipes and their pictures with you!
