Gluten Free Mustard and Hot Dogs

frenches mustard gluten free
Sometimes it's the little things I miss, like Colmans mustard. Not only did I use it as a condiment but I used it as an ingredient in things such as mashed potato and burgers. I found out pretty early on that Colmans had gluten in it so I bought the powder (which is gluten free) and tried to replicate my own. Couldn't do it, it was never the right consistency or taste.

It had been a few years since I'd had any kind of mustard but recently I'd had a craving for it. Despite the numerous kinds available it didn't take long for a label scanning mission one shopping trip to find one that is not only gluten free, but quite possibly better than Colmans.

French's Classic Yellow Mustard is gluten free and apparently America's favourite. What I love about it is that it's 100% natural, which means no artificial colours or preservatives. It's quite a mild mustard, so it goes with lots of different things.

On a somewhat related note, if you live in London there's a great hot dog stand at Old Street EC1V that sells gluten free hot dogs. Big Apple Hot Dogs make 4 different kids of dogs with lots of toppings available. I haven't had the pleasure because what a surprise! They have pepper in them. But my other half has had lunch from them on quite a few occasions and he says they're delicious. He isn't even gluten free. If you want the full experience take a gluten free bun with you, French's mustard is on the stand so take full advantage!

The weekend calls, it's gluten free meal planning time!
