Do you like mock meats? I used to eat all sorts of them, but these days there is only one brand of vegan meatstuff that does it for me: Field Roast!
Mustard penmanship. Nailed it.
This post is all about their Frankfurters, which are the BOMB! Their sausages and roasts are awesome too, but the Franks kick any other vegan hot dog's butt. They are chewy, thick, tasty, and soy-free! They are such a treat! Whenever we take a trip down to Whole Foods we grab a pack, and it's hard not to eat frankfurters for lunch and dinner for three days straight until the whole pack of six is gone. But they do freeze well, if you do happen to be a more demure eater.
Mr. Wing-It loves them too, and his favorite way to enjoy these Frankfurters is Chili Dog style. Mr. Wing-It is no ordinary man, and he eats no ordinary chili dog. His chili dogs consist of a bottom layer of chili, a hot dog bun filled with more chili, then hot dog on top, then more chili on top, and then melted rice cheese.
They make nice little hot dog bites too! Perfect for a fun party. Unfortunately the following picture was taken at a sad party of one: me. 'Tis the way of the antisocial introvert.
Those buns, you ask? If you read my blog during Vegan MoFo last year, you might have guessed that the recipe I used is Maggie's Homemade Newfoundland White Bread! So light and fluffy and perfect! It is the only recipe for white bread I will ever need. The recipe yields twelve hot dogs, in case you were wondering. I just divided the dough into twelve pieces (after the first rise) and shaped each piece into a log. I placed them on a baking pan fairly closed together so they would stick together as they rose. They baked for about 18 minutes at 425 degrees F, and I brushed a bit of Earth Balance on top as soon as they came out of the oven, which kept them nice and soft. Let's watch me pull them apart...
Perfection! Thanks, Maggie!
I cannot recommend these Frankfurters enough! If you haven't tried them yet, and you live somewhere where you can get a hold of them, definitely check them out! My condolences if you have a gluten intolerance :(
