The Bun Burner

First, I haven’t heard from the first winner of the Appetite For Reduction giveaway, so the new winner is…

Number 27, Squeak!  Squeak, I don’t have an e-mail address for you either, so please contact me at veganhomemade AT gmail DOT com.  I am determined to give this cookbook away!

We visited Reno again in January, and there’s not much to report except that Freeman’s Natural Hotdogs is still awesome.

A brownie – vegan AND gluten free, and a Blue Sky Free Root Beer.  I didn’t notice when I grabbed the soda out of the cooler that it was stevia-sweetened and calorie-free, so I was extra happy when I realized it.  Have to negate that brownie somehow!

Asian Slaw, which comes with housemade miso-sesame dressing.  I was surprised that the raw cabbage was tossed with the dressing just before serving, as normally I would expect the slaw to be marinated.  It worked though, the super-crunchy cabbage was really nice and the dressing was just sweet enough.

And this is the Bun Burner – vegan chorizo, jalapenos, chipotle-lime aioli and salsa, on a poppyseed bun.  This was one spicy hotdog, and I loved every bite!


  1. I must admit, I’ve never seriously considered ordering a veggie dog when eating out (I think I’ve been scarred by earlier, less appetizing renditions when I was a newbie vegan) but the “bun burner” really doesn’t look half bad- And that’s saying a lot, coming from me! I especially like the idea of a poppy seed bun, which you don’t really see for hot dogs around here.

    • I’m not a discerning veggie dog consumer – I kind of love them all, but this one was especially tasty!

    That does look like a tasty dog – did the slaw cool it off any?

    Funny, I also recently accidentally grabbed a Blue Sky Free (cola). I prefer the sugared version, but maybe your brownie was better than my sugar.
