It has been six years since we had a decent hot dog, not to mention hamburger! But the wait is over thanks once again to Udi's!
When we first went gluten free we basically gave up any bread products. Back then, the only bread you could find had to be stored in the freezer and toasted before it resembled anything close to what we thought bread should taste like. And speaking of taste, it was pretty bland and dry like sand in your mouth.
Then along came Udi's and once again we are experiencing the All-American sandwich. My kids were in awe the first time I made grilled cheese with tomato soup! We loved the even-better French Toast. We are so thankful for a sandwich bread that actually survives in the lunch box!
I came home that night and made hot dogs!
We rarely eat them anymore because it is no fun to eat a hot dog on a bun that crumbles into a million pieces. But not the Udi buns. We grilled the hot dogs until they were perfectly flame broiled on the outside but so juicy that the moment you bit into them the flavor exploded in your mouth. The hot dogs were accompanied, of course, by Udi hot dog buns that were warmed on the grill. The buns were perfect - they didn't crumble into a hundred pieces and they tasted, well normal! Even my "vegetarian" Gluten Free Teen ate one!
We were so excited about the buns that we had hot dogs on Monday night, hamburgers on Wednesday and Friday night I baked the Bell and Evans Chicken Breast and we had chicken sandwiches (the Middle Child declared they were just like Red Robin). By Saturday, I am pretty sure I had gained a pound or two, so we went back on our naturally gluten free low-card diet but how fun just to experience some of the things we "used to eat."
Thanks you once again Udi for making our lives that much more happier!
