TGIF, eh my friends? To that end it is time for gluten-free Friday! Once again I want to mention that my family is not gluten-free and these posts are brought to you jointly with House-54 where they are 100% gluten-free! Check out their blog for more recipes and ideas! I simply hope to inspire some great lunch ideas and especially for my gluten-free friends! I think you know most of my lunches are easily adaptable to be gluten-free but on Fridays I’ll do the work for you! Bear with me as I go through this education process and seek out House-54 with any questions!

Today I decided to go with something very simple and very kid friendly. A banana and a hot dog, what could be more kid friendly? I’ll tell you… the Banana Dog!

The folks at the grocery store must certainly think I am kooky by now. Each week I wander around with my iPhone taking pictures of gluten-free products! This week I stumbled up the hot dog rolls. There are several brands available out there so check your local store or order online! The ones I encounter most often are Udi’s and Rudis! I am also noticing that these products tend to be pricey (so sorry my gluten-free friends) so do note that most of these companies carry coupons on their websites or Facebook pages so always check before you go shopping!

  • Take your roll and spread with your favorite peanut butter. Most peanut butters are gluten-free but do check your brand if you have concerns!
  • You can add your banana whole or cut in half as I did!
  • I then grated some Enjoy Life chocolate on the top (just a teeny amount).

You could really have fun with this but I kept it straight forward for simplicity. You could add jelly for “ketchup”, you could cut up kiwi for “relish”, you could add raisins or some gluten-free granola. So many options! Now let’s talk snacks!

This lunch contains:

Also note that you can treat bananas for browning just as you do apples etc. You can use a purchased anti-browning product, or use vitamin C disolved in water, or lemon juice in water etc. I personally do not treat my bananas in sandwiches as in the short time between preparing in the morning and the school lunch time itself, I do not find that the banana degrades that much. Try and decide for yourself! :)

I hope you enjoyed today’s gluten-free Friday and tune in next week when I’ll be back at it again! Today’s lunch was featured in an Easy Lunch Box!
