Apologies, Apologies at the lapse in articles with my blog. It has been a frustrating 4 months now with a limited flavored diet. This little gem inside is wrecking my culinary desires. I did find a wonderful product though during this time, and baking is beginning to become commonplace again. So without further adieu, I want to introduce you to my newest staple.
I am sure by now you have either seen articles about or products from Gardein- garden products. Mostly, I see them at Fresh and Easy or health food markets. But, I spotted this particular product at Ralphs. I have not been impressed at all by their other products, finding them to lack flavor and desirable texture. However, an exception came along with their Seven Grain Crispy Tenders. Seriously speaking, I have NOT been able to find a good chicken nugget substitute except when dining at Native Foods. These Crispy Tenders are just that; flaky, tender and with a crispy "skin". A very good replacement for those inferior products I find elsewhere. My kids love them!
Retailing for $3.99, which serves 5 (well our four), that's about a $1.00 per meal. I typically stock up on them for usage in sandwiches, to dip in sauces, or to serve as an entree.
We think they're great, I think you will think so too.
