Beretta Family Farms is launching their new line of organic beef, turkey and chicken hot dogs just in time for grilling season. They are a great addition to your BBQ spread especially because they are gluten-free and nitrate-free.
If you’re like me and you’re semi-conscious about the food you put into your body, you probably already avoid processed meats like hot dogs and deli-meat. You can finally enjoy hot dogs without wondering what mystery meats you’re ingesting! For example, let’s compare the ingredients list of Beretta’s Antibiotic Free Turkey Hot Dogs to Schneiders Juicy Jumbos Original Wieners.
Beretta: Traditionally raised turkey, water, salt, spice, garlic, sodium erythorbate, onion, smoke, sodium nitrite.
Schneiders: Pork, chicken; water, dextrose, salt, corn syrup solids, potassium lactate, sodium phosphate, garlic powder, sodium diacetate, sodium erytjobate, spice, sodium nitrate, smoke.
If you’re willing to dish out $10.99 for a 6-pack of healthy wieners, then put hot dogs back on your menu.
The launch event was for Beretta’s new line of organic hot dogs was held on the rooftop patio of the beautiful Burroughes Building at Queen and Bathurst. It was a gorgeous day for a BBQ – a tad windy but still warm and sunny!
Out of the three meats, I went for the turkey hot dog. The condiment spread was quiet impressive. It consisted of jalapenos, relish, sauerkraut, corn salsa, tomatoes, onions, olives, chipotle mayo, banana peppers, ketchup, mayo, and SIX different kinds of mustard. Are you not impressed? I sure was!
I didn’t dress my hot dog with every ingredient… even though I wanted to, I didn’t. Overall, it was a good hot dog and I ate it guilt-free. I was going to go for a second dog but all I could think of was LOADED FRIES. Put all the toppings on the fries and devour it… and that’s what I did. 10/10 would do again. It was glorious.
My foodie buddy, Meetandeats, was able to devour all three hot dogs – I have no idea where she puts it! We both enjoyed our dogs but I had a better time sprinkling all the diced goodies and slathering the sauces on my buns.
I washed it all down with a couple cups of Walter Caesar! I was glad to be reunited with this delicious cocktail because the last time I had some was back in March! I still have an unopened bottle in my fridge and I’m not sure why I’m saving it.
