25 Days of Christmas Giveaways, Gluten Free of Course! #1 Applegate Farms

Could there be more tasty meats and cheeses out there? I think not! In addition to being natural, nitrate-free and many even organic, Applegate Farms offers the most delicious gluten free meats and cheeses. I recently had the opportunity to review a varitey of lunch meats and cheeses as well as the pepperoni, Canadian bacon, breakfast sausage and bacon, cocktail weenies, gluten free corn dogs and gluten free chicken nuggets.

Each of the Applegate Farms products I reviewed was absolutely delicious! They were so full of flavor. I especially loved the Havarti and Swiss Cheeses. The pepperoni was delicious on pizza. Once you have used Applegates pepperoni, nothing else will compare. I decided to make a gluten free Hawaiian pizza with the Canadian bacon and LOVED it! The cocktail weenies were great just heated up or served hot with gluten free barbecue sauce. The breakfast bacon is wonderful served along side gluten free pancakes (we love Pamela’s:) or used in a great salad like our family favorite, Mom’s Cabbage Salad. I loved knowing that in addition to great taste, I was also enjoying the best quality meats and cheeses. The fun new items like the gluten-free corn dogs and chicken nuggets that I reviewed were something I have missed and loved seeing gluten free! Not only was I getting some of my childhood favorites, but I was getting the great benefits of the products actually being made with quality ingredients.

  • Their animals are free of antibiotics, hormones and artificial growth hormones
  • A 100% vegetarian diet with no animal by-products is fed to their livestock
  • All products are made with natural and organic ingredients and never contain nitrates or nitrites
  • Each product is minimally processed, to create a wholesome texture and taste
  • Their deli meat, hot dogs, burgers and bacon are gluten and casein free

Thank you Applegate for all you do!!!

  19. Organic deli meat sounds so so nice to me. It is hard to find deli meat that is completely gluten free because often it is cut on the same machines as others with filler meats. So that is what sounds yummiest to me!
