Dr. Praeger's Review and Giveaway

Instead of having french fries, or mashed potatoes, why don't you try a different potato recipe? Expand your palate and sample a new food today.

It all started in 1994 when successful New Jersey cardiac surgeon Dr. Peter Praeger and his medical partner, Dr. Eric Somberg, helped keep a family business alive. They bought Ungar’s Gefilte Fish – a popular food company within the Jewish and Yiddish communities. The doctors set out on a simple mission – to help people see nutritious food in a new light. They expanded the company to include all-natural and sensible products that would appeal to a wider consumer base. They kept the Ungar’s brand, which includes the original gefilte fish and other traditional Jewish foods, and developed Dr. Praeger’s Sensible Foods, which now includes dozens of all-natural, kosher frozen foods.

Dr. Praeger's philosophy is that good-for-you food should actually taste good, especially if you don’t let artificial ingredients, colors and fillers get in the way. That’s why our products are made with ingredients you recognize, including flash-frozen vegetables and fish from cold Northern waters. Our hearty California Veggie Burger doesn’t conceal its tasty spinach, broccoli, peas, carrots and onions –it puts them right where you can see and taste them! And our gluten-free options are an easy way to keep wheat out of your diet, while keeping the good things in, like fiber and taste bud-pleasing flavor.

Dr. Praeger's sells different varieties of veggie burgers, appetizers and snacks, veggie chicken, veggie pancakes, meals for kids, fish, and gluten free foods.

I received a coupon to try any Dr. Praeger's foods I wanted. I let my boyfriend pick out what he wanted. He chose the potato pancakes.


Potato pancakes are shallow-fried pancakes of grated potato, flour and egg, often flavored with grated onion or garlic and seasoning. Potato pancakes may be topped with a variety of condiments, ranging from the savory (such as sour cream) to the sweet (such as apple sauce or sugar), or they may be served ungarnished. Potato pancakes are sometimes made from mashed potatoes to produce pancake-shaped croquettes.

He had them for dinner tonight. He said they had a nice crunch on the outside, but not too crunchy. The potato interior was fluffy and very soft. The potato flavor was prominent and very excellent. The size of each pancake is perfect for a quick lunch or snack. He paired it with mustard, but said it would be great paired with any condiment. He said these pancakes have a very similiar taste to the homemade potato pancakes he's had before. He liked that these weren't very greasy or oily though.

  10. I love Dr. Praeger's products and I eat them all the time, but they are a bit pricey for our budget, so it would be nice to get some for free.
