I had a craving for hot dogs. Before I became a vegetarian, I would eat hot dogs occasionally and I really enjoyed them grilled. Being a vegetarian for more than a year and a half now, I decided I wanted to find out if they were vegetarian or vegan hot dog options available.
My brother and my seven-year-old niece decided to have macaroni and cheese with the hot dogs. My hotdog trips took me through several stores until I found Tofurky hot dogs. I have had the Tofurky deli slices before and I enjoyed them so I was more than willing to give Tofurky hot dogs a chance.
Tofurky hot dogs are cooked the same way you cook a normal hotdog. Either in boiling water or on the grill. I do not have a grill at my apartment but grilling Tofurky hot dogs this summer is on my to-do list!
We prepared macaroni and cheese with Tofurky hot dogs. For the hot dogs we had condiments of onions, ketchup, mustard and relish. My brother was the first finishes his hot dogs and when I asked him what he thought of them he said “pretty good”. We don’t tell my seven-year-old niece that they were vegan hot dogs because we wanted to see if she would know the difference in taste. When I asked her what she thought the hot dogs she smiled and gave me two thumbs up. We never did tell her that they weren’t actual meat hot dogs. All that matters is that she really enjoyed them!
I really enjoyed Tofurky hot dogs. When cooked with the water method, Tofurky hot dogs have nearly the same texture as meat hot dogs. I thought the Tofurky hot dogs had a bit of spice to them. Not as spicy as ai hot, but as spicy as flavorful. I actually liked it better than a plain old meat hotdog.
I highly recommend trying Tofurky hot dogs if you’re a vegetarian or vegan and you want to satisfy your hotdog craving. I thought they were tasty, satisfying and for me will be my hotdog of choice in the future.
I give Tofurky hotdogs 4.5 out of five. They satisfied my craving for hotdogs and they tasted great!
