On our listing of foods in our Dinners on Demand™ freezers, we make dishes that are Gluten Sensitive.  (Our kitchens aren’t technically ‘Gluten Free’ because we do cook with gluten in them. We’re super clean freaks, but there’s always an outside chance that it came into contact with something that has gluten. However, the Gluten Sensitive (marked GS) items are ones in which we haven’t added any gluten.)

We also mark dishes with an * that include directions to prepare straight from frozen. These are fabulous choices to take home for dinner TONIGHT!  Most of our dishes we recommend thawing overnight in the refrigerator before preparing or serving.

Ingredients and cooking instructions are listed on the label of each dish, so take a look – we have something for just about everyone, whether you’re lactose-intolerant or vegetarian, etc.

Yum…

It’s a really tough job, but someone has to do it!)  We have a new and hard-to-believe-but-improved Chicken Enchilada Casserole and some spectacular Just-Like-Julia’s Beef Bourguignon that was added to the Dinners on Demand freezers today. And look for some tasty new dishes like Ultimate Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Bacon & Sweet Corn Bake, Pommes Dauphinoise (Potato in Cream), Gluten-Free Pasta Alfredo and more… coming soon!
