When buying hot dogs, open the package put all the wieners on a cookie sheet, then freeze them. Once they are frozen put them in a freezer bag. Then when you want one or two, they will already be separated.

I separate many items to flash freeze them before I freeze them in large bags, like pork chops, beef cubes, chicken breasts, thighs, bacon, etc., but never thought of separating hot dogs. Thanks for a great idea. I'll do that next time.

Can I freeze frankfurters in the packaging they come in? Or, will the packaging split?
Thanks :)

Ice expands so, depending upon what the frankfurters are made of, they might expand enough to split the packaging. I would use freezer bags to avoid the problem.

It depends on how long they've already been thawed. If it was only a day or two and they were thawed in the refrigerator it would be safe but I don't know what it would do to the flavor.

I have always heard to never refreeze thawed food. You can cook them then refreeze.

Can you refreeze deer hot dogs that were defrosted outside of the refrigator for a day?

No. Only refreeze meat which still has ice crystals in it.

Can I refreeze hot dogs which have been defrosted by soaking in hot water?

Kerry from Natick, MA

Refreezing Hot Dogs

As far as safety, I'd say it depends on how long they sat in the hot water and how much bacteria collected in that time. If it were me, I'd only risk it if they were defrosted for less than an hour, and they probably won't taste the same anyway. They may have freezer burn after refreezing.

My mom worked in the main office of Safeway in the meat department back in the 80s and answered questions from people calling about refreezing meat all the time. It's not true that once meat has been defrosted that it can't be refrozen. It usually can if it hasn't been defrosted for very long. (12/30/2008)

I wouldn't trust anything defrosted with out cooking it first. Then refreeze it. It's not worth getting sick over! (01/05/2009)

No, not unless you want to take a chance on being sick. (01/05/2009)

Refreezing Hot Dogs

I'm not dead yet! Once something is thawed, whatever degree of bacteria that grew is the degree that it would have when it was re-frozen. If it was done shortly afterward, I've never had a problem. They are full of nitrates and wouldn't go bad as quickly as fresh meat. (01/06/2009)
