The Not Dog

The Not Dog

Created by the experts in all-out American dining Big Easy, as a challenge from Linda McCartney’s, they have taken on the icon of the hot dog, making it meat-free. Made using Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Sausages, the new Big Easy Texan Vegan Corn ‘Not Dog’ is inspired by the classic Corn Dog from the Texas State Fairs of the 1940s. Taking seriously succulent vegetarian sausages, dipped in corn batter and deep fried to a golden brown, fully loaded with smoky BBQ sauce, tangy chilli jam and topped with crispy onions in a soft bun. Lip-smacking taste, that’s 100% vegan

This tasty collaboration sees Linda McCartney’s; the well-loved vegetarian brand founded by Linda McCartney, the original punk-pioneer of meat-free eating, come together with Big Easy, the original pioneer of BBQ and all things American restaurants to shake up the norm, taking on the iconic dish to prove just how indulgently irresistible meat-free eating can be. The hunger-busting ‘Not Dog’ has been created to offer veggies and vegans an option on the menu, as well as helping encourage Londoners to enjoy more meat-free meals! 

Linda McCartney paved the way almost 30 years ago for today’s vegetarian movement. As the original meat-free pioneer, she inspired a generation and her legacy continues to reach far and wide today, with vegetarian and vegan eating fast becoming a norm.

Available at all Big Easy restaurants in Chelsea, Covent Garden and Canary Wharf starting from American Independence Day 4th July through to 21st July, you can chow down on the ultimate vegan feast. The dish costs £8 and £1 of every dish will go to the Trussell Trust food bank charity.
