We have tried quite a variety of gluten-free corn dog recipes and none of them have been that great, until now! I am so excited to share this recipe with you because everyone in my house loved them. They really taste like corn dogs, not an imitation of a corn dog. As one of our readers suggested yesterday, these would make a great SuperBowl snack.
When purchasing your hot dogs it is important to make sure they do not contain nitrites. Many brands of hot dogs contain nitrites which are used as preservatives, primarily to combat botulism. During the cooking process, nitrites combine with amines naturally present in meat to form carcinogenic N-nitroso compounds. It is also suspected that nitrites can combine with amines in the human stomach to form N-nitroso compounds. These compounds are known carcinogens and have been associated with cancer of the oral cavity, urinary bladder, esophagus, stomach and brain. (Source) It is especially important that children and potential parents do not consume 12 or more of these hot dogs per month.
We use Organic Applegate Hog Dogs. The only ingredients are: Organic Grass-Fed Beef, Water, Sea Salt, Organic Spices, Organic Dehydrated Garlic, Organic Dehydrated Onion, Organic Paprika, Celery Powder. My kids love them!
When purchasing your honey for this recipe, raw unprocessed honey is a good choice. 75% of all honey sold in stores contains no honey at all. A comprehensive investigation conducted by Food Safety News (FSN) has found that the vast majority of so-called honey products sold at grocery stores do not contain any pollen, which means they are not real honey. “Raw honey is thought to have many medicinal properties,” says Kathy Egan, dietitian at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass. ”Stomach ailments, anemia and allergies are just a few of the conditions that may be improved by consumption of unprocessed honey.”
I hope you and your family enjoy these as much as we did!
