Gluten-Free America: Sizzler


gluten-free-sizzler-americaLook at these happy people! You guys, there’s no better way to celebrate a successful school production of “Annie” than by bellying up to the unlimited salad bar at the Sizzler. Plus, I’ve been driving by Sizzler wondering what gluten-free options they might offer. Doesn’t everyone?

gluten-free-sizzlerPssst, you can’t have this buttery and cheesey toast. And it will tempt you. Right there in all its glory.

Moving on.

I did have the added challenge of being on the autoimmune protocol diet, but I still did some research (ask for the allergen paperwork before you order) and my dinner companions wound up ordering some naturally gluten-free meals. So, actually, it seems that Sizzler is super gluten-free friendly. Not so much with the organic and non-processed, but hey, we can’t have it all, can we? Can we?

I could have added steak and still been within the parameters (except for the grass-fed thing), but I just wasn’t feeling it. Please note that you cannot have the bacon bits. And more things, but no bacon is very important information.

This is what I would have ordered had I been able to enjoy potatoes and dairy.

Yummmmmmmmmm.

So, avoid that fish, and every other fish because apparently all seafood dishes contain wheat for some odd reason.

As with most restaurants, just keep it simple people. You don’t want to start adding stuff to your never-ending salad plate only to discover you’ll be in trouble later. Still, it’s good knowing that if Sizzler is the option for me, I can cram steak down my gullet with abandon.

  1. Bet it’s a spice called Seafood Seasoning. Red Lobster uses it, too. This seasoning contains gluten. So does one called Old Bay, also used often on fish.
