Ideas for an Allergy-Friendly Easter Menu

Ideas for an Allergy-Friendly Easter Menu

As the host, I feel it’s my responsibility to ensure that the Easter table is safe for him. And I welcome that responsibility (and sometimes challenge). Of course, if you have a 2-year-old, you know they’re picky little buggers who don’t eat much.

These days, our allergies are eggs and dairy, but if you also have nut, peanut, soy and gluten on your list, there are lots of options. Here are just a few ideas to pull from this Sunday.

Traditional Thanksgiving Dressing (Egg-Free, Dairy-Free)

Stuffing/dressing has always been one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving. But a lot of traditional recipes call for egg and butter, which we can't do. So, here's the traditional option we'll be doing this year.

Chorizo and Jalapeño Dressing (Egg-Free, Dairy-Free)

At Thanksgiving, people tend to expect the traditional foods. But what if you had the latitude to kick up the spice level on your dressing/stuffing? You'd get this. Oh, and it's dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free and soy-free.

Resources for Thanksgiving Turkey

Resources for Thanksgiving Turkey

Whoa, Thanksgiving is a week away. How did that happen? Despite my love of cooking, last year was my first time ever hosting Thanksgiving. And boy, was it stressful. I'll work on building out some allergy-friendly ideas this year so they can be a resource in future years. But in the meantime, I can share some resources for turkey that I hope will be helpful to you.
