GFCFSF Mashed Potatoes and Hot Dogs




My daughter's favorite meal (at least this week) is mashed potatoes with hot dogs.

I've posted about my mashed potatoes before (click HERE). But my last post included canola mayonnaise, which I don't use anymore because it has egg in it, and we have since become egg-free due to my daughter's IgE test.

So I just wanted to do a little update post and let all you egg-free'ers know that these mashed potatoes can be made egg-free.

About 4-5 russet potatoes (or other potatoes work too)
1 head of cauliflower
Some milk sub (I use Manitoba Harvest hempmilk, but any milk sub would work)
A drizzle or two of oil (I use coconut oil, but any would work, or you could skip this too)
Some GF chicken broth or veggie broth (also optional; I use Pacific brand)
Lots of salt
Some minced garlic

Peel potatoes. Core the cauliflower (I do this by banging it core-down really hard on the counter). You can cut the potatoes smaller if you want but it's not necessary. Put everything into a big pot of water and boil. Keep boiling until the potatoes are really soft and easy to cut into with a fork. Strain. Mash with a potato masher and/or mix with a hand mixer. Add your other ingredients to taste.

Hot Dogs . . .
For the hot dogs, I use Applegate Farms "The Great American Hot Dog." I slice them a bit with a knife to vent, then I cook in the microwave for a couple of minutes. (Yes, I use a microwave, don't kill me.) Slice them up and mix them in with the potatoes.

I like the way you re-organized your posts (ingredients, issues, etc.)!

Have you ever tried Wellshire Farms hot dogs? They are gf (and I think GFCFSF). The beef ones are fabulous, and I bought some chicken ones too.

Also, I recently found and really like coconut butter (different from coconut oil since it includes the entire coconut). Artisana Organic Raw Coconut Butter is the exact name. It's buttery, with a mild coconut flavor, and I think would be good in mashed potatoes. I've personally been spreading the stuff on rice cakes with a dab of creamed honey and celtic sea salt...yum!
