Gluten Free Corn Dogs in honor of National Celiac Awareness Day!

Today is National Celiac Awareness Day (September 13th). We have been 100% gluten free for 5 years now. In honor of National Celiac Awareness day, I am sharing one of the boys’ favorite convenience meals….Gluten Free Corn Dogs! What’s so great about homemade is how I am able to create gluten free and healthier options of those such as by using Great Day Farms Organic Eggs or limiting sugar & other additives. Information and the availability of gluten free has come a long way during that time. It’s hard not to be so grateful for all the advances especially the fact that there are now definite rules for labeling gluten free. Prior to August 2013, Brands were not necessarily held accountable for what gluten free really means! Below read some from fda.org on the matter:

This new federal definition standardizes the meaning of “gluten-free” claims across the food industry. It requires that, in order to use the term “gluten-free” on its label, a food must meet all of the requirements of the definition, including that the food must contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten. The rule also requires foods with the claims “no gluten,” “free of gluten,” and “without gluten” to meet the definition for “gluten-free.”

The FDA recognizes that many foods currently labeled as “gluten-free” may be able to meet the new federal definition already. Food manufacturers will have a year after the rule is published to bring their labels into compliance with the new requirements.

I am a fan of novelty pans and appliance to help the boys get kid foods that love. The corn dog maker is one of our favorites! As you can see below, you don’t have to be neat when putting the batter in since the machine levels it all out! We use it to make corn dogs and pancake and sausage sticks for breakfast.

The boys love to help me make the gluten free corn dogs by adding the sticks!

    Okay, I did not know there was such a thing as a corn dog machine. Cool.
    We have several people at church that need to eat gluten-free, so I have been learning how hard that actually is. Especially in our small rural area, it is not that easy to find gluten free ingredients. Wondering how to make them without a special corn dog maker though

      I use to make them using a cup. 1. Make the batter a little thinner with milk. 2. Put batter in tall cup. 3. Dip sticked hot dog into batter to evenly coat. 4. I prefer fry to brown then switch to oven to bake about 15-20 minutes.

    I love this idea! A close friend of mine has boys who need to eat gluten- free and I am definitely going to ask her if they like corn dogs; I think it would be a great Christmas present if I got her one of these corn dog machines and printed out this recipe! Thanks for this!
