When I first went Gluten free, I seriously missed having a hot off the grill hot dog with relish, ketchup and mustard in a warm bun. And watching my husband eat one of my famous gouda burgers was painful too!
One day, when my husband felt sorry for me, he brought me home some Udi’s bagels. They were really good. A different texture than the bagels I was used to, but delicious in their own way, toasted up with butter and honey…YUM.
That was my very first Udi’s experience!
Now that Summer has come and the grilling season is on, I get to have burgers and hot dogs and stuff again, as long as I use the Udi’s.
In fact, right now, Udi’s is running a “Countdown to Summer” promotion, where they are asking fans to get ready for grilling season with Udi’s Gluten Free Foods. Instead of having a BBQ, they are encouraging grillers to have an UDI-Q.
Udi’s asked me…How would you fill an Udi’s Gluten-Free Bun?
They sent me some Udi’s Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns (whole grain and classic) and Hot Dog buns to try. (I also got some delicious snickerdoodle cookies!)
I LOVED the hot dog buns. I use the organic hot dogs and a homemade relish…my husband lightly grilled the bun and I ate several. I had not had a hot dog in a bun in a few years!
I shared the hamburger buns with the family and when they were toasted up full of burger and extras, the kids liked them. They actually held together better than I had expected, and were good. The next day, I polished them off using them for an egg sandwich. Ummmmmmmm.
I have a big family, and I feel it isn’t really cost effective to buy Udi’s for everyone – but they do not all need that, either. So, now I get some for myself here and there and freeze them for a treat for myself. It is nice to know I can use them for everyone if I want.
Check this out: “Udi’s is creating a fun BUN-GO game on their Facebook page. BUN-GO is our way of getting fans exciting for summer and giving them the items they need (like our gluten free buns) to host a great BBQ. From May 7th thru June 19th, visit Udi’s Gluten Free Foods Facebook Page. You must be an Udi’s Gluten Free Facebook fan to participate. Each participant will get their own BUNGO board, similar to a BINGO board. Each square has an associated task, such as answering a question about your favorite hot dog toppings. Once you complete a row, diagonal, or column of squares (i.e. tasks) you earn points toward Udi’s Gluten Free bun coupons and other barbecue essentials. If you complete your entire board, you’re entered to win a $500 gift card to one of the following retailers: Home Depot, Williams-Sonoma, or Whole Foods.”
