Foster Farms Gluten Free Corndogs - Are They Good?

Thursday, November 13, 2014

So, right off the bat I must say that I don't follow instructions and why Foster Farms thinks you should microwave a corndog is beyond confusing. Why would you want a corndog out of the microwave? 

The directions said to put the corndogs in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.  Now I guess if you’re in a rush and want to cook this quickly, then 30-45 seconds may work, but for me, I want my corndogs toasted and crunchy! Not soggy.

I threw 3 in the toaster oven at work and set it to about 400ºF for about 15 minutes. The box said 350ºF for 18 minutes frozen or 10 minutes thawed. I turned it over a few times for an even cook.

So when the bell went off on the toaster oven, I made may way down the hall. I felt like I was walking into the fair when I smelled these things. They smelled amazing.
(DO NOT GRAB THE STICK WHEN IT'S BEEN IN THE TOASTER OVEN... I REPEAT... DO NOT GRAB THE STICK WHEN IT'S BEEN IN THE TOASTER OVEN!...) I'm not saying that I burnt my fingers... nope... that didn't happen... I just don't feel like using my thumb and index finger right now)
I grabbed some mustard, because, no corndog is complete without mustard.
I was actually excited to try these things with how they smelled. With my first bite I thought, ehhh it's a corndog, nothing too exciting. The breading around the hotdog was rather thick. I was expecting something thinner with how most gluten free items come. I think if these things were deep-fried, that the thick batter around the hotdog would've tasted better.

After eating the corndogs, I looked at my fingers and noticed they were rather gunky and oily. Now, this is what your hands should look like after eating a corndog so I wasn't disappointed. 

Overall I was rather impressed with the taste of the batter around the hotdog. It was nice eating a corndog knowing that I wasn't going to feel like a truck backed over me.

Your kiddos will absolutely love them, and the nice thing about them is that they are very filling. The 3 that I consumed filled me up for the rest of the day.
