This week is all about Pub Grub, aka Bar Food.

Bar food or pub grub is always a special treat and what better time to try these recipes than on game night, poker night, or movie night.  Turn your living room into a dine-in movie theater.

Remember to adapt each recipe according to your specific dietary needs.  The recipes have been chosen so you they can easily be modified.  For example, the ground beef can be substituted with TVP and the bread crumbs can be purchased gluten-free bread crumbs or you can make your own using stale bread.
