Gluten Free Turkey Hot Dogs – Better Than At The Ballpark!

July 16th, 2013 at Tue, 16th, 2013 at 5:30 pm by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie

I just had the best Gluten Free Turkey Hot Dogs! Seriously, it was the best hot dog that I have had in years! I know what you are thinking, how can a hot dog made with Turkey be good? Or the best?!  Jennie-o makes two sizes, regular franks and jumbo franks made with 100% turkey, natural smoke flavor and 40% less fat than beef franks.

Better than at the Ballpark Gluten Free Turkey Hot Dog! Thanks Jennie-O!

Jennie-O Turkey Store really makes it easy to enjoy all of our favorite fun foods and stay healthy even at a neighborhood picnic! Jennie-O Turkey franks are only 6 g of fat, 1 carb and the Jumbo Turkey franks are 10 g of fat, 2 carbs.  Check out Jennie-O Turkey Store’s list of products that are Gluten Free on their website.

Regardless, if the weather is great outside or not, you can enjoy the taste of summer cooked indoors or out.  Jennie-O Turkey franks are so flavorful with the natural smoked flavor everyone will think you cooked them outside on a hot grill.

Go ahead …dive on in! It is Gluten Free Turkey deliciousness!

Tip – use  your grill pan on your stove top at home to make the marks on your dog.  The eyes will see the grill marks and everyone will think you went to the extra effort to heat up the grill. It will be our little secret!  Let’s just say I fooled a few people.

Can I tell you another secret?  Please don’t tell anyone but I am not usually a fan of hot dogs! Honestly, I usually will go for a Gluten Free burger or a sandwich before I would go for a Gluten Free hot dog because I have been so disappointed in the past.  I can honestly say that Jennie-O has made me fall head over heels in love with their Turkey hot dogs. It makes me feel great that they are healthier too!

I served my GF turkey hot dogs with all the fix- ins, spicy mustard, ketchup, relish, onions and sides of sweet baby carrots, snow peas from my garden and crunchy Kettle Chips. I paired the hot dogs with Essential Baking Company Gluten Free Hot Dog Buns.  I purchased my GF Essential Baking hot dog buns, $5.99 per bag at Central Market in Poulsbo, WA. Please note the buns come 4 to a package so you will need more to equal a package of Turkey franks. I put some Earth Balance buttery spread on the bun and placed it on the hot grill to heat up for a crisp and soft texture. 

So go … get yourself some “hot dawgs”!



Thank you to Jennie-O for sending me a voucher to purchase their Turkey franks. I purchased the other ingredients and it was pure deliciousness! I was not paid for my sincere opinion.

Learning to live Gluten Free is a challenge. Gathering with like minded people while exchanging ideas, life experiences and gluten free food is more interesting! So I created, Gluten Free Foodies, to support people with Celiac Disease, Gluten Intolerant and other Food Sensitive people by gathering at events and celebrating the foods that we can eat! Do you have a Gluten Free question you want the answer to? Feel free to send me an email at Original blog - After all, didn't Erma Bombeck once say ... "I am not a glutton, I am an explorer of food."
