If you had asked me 10 years ago if I would ever eat a pre-made sausage in a pancake again, I would have laughed in your face. Finding prepared gluten-free pancakes was basically impossible back then. Now, they come with sausage, too?
I recently received some samples from Ian’s Natural Foods.
Sausage Pancrepes: it’s a sausage in a skinny pancake! The sausage has a hint of spicy heat and the pancake is a bit sweet. The crepe holds together well and isn’t crumbly (like you often find with frozen bread products).
The Chicken Nuggets have a medium-thick cornmeal breading. I could taste some garlic, but just a bit. They definitely have that kid-friendly chopped chicken which holds together well inside the breading. The flavor of the chicken pulls at a memory, but I can’t grasp it (do you ever have one of those moments?). It goes great with some honey or spicy barbecue sauce (or both)!
French Bread Pizza Supreme has a thick, crispy crust. There’s just enough dairy-free cheese that you know there’s cheese there, but not enough that you could tell it’s dairy-free. Lots of sauce, peppers and onions, sausage and pepperoni top this lunch-time treat. I would definitely be happy if my school served these. The French bread has just enough flavor that it’s not bland, but not so much that it overpowers the toppings (even though it is a lot of bread in comparison to the toppings – this comes from the girl who eats cracker-thin pizza crusts).
Ian’s would like to give you a chance to try their new products. One lucky reader will win a coupon for a free Ian’s product of their choice. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post: what new product did you think you’d never see gluten-free and/or what are you still waiting for in a gluten-free form? For example, I’m still waiting for readily available cheese-it/cheese-nips – type crackers.
