Freezing Hot Dogs

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.

Can you refreeze hot dogs?

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.

Meat that has been thawed in the refrigerator can be safely refrozen within a couple of days.

Hot dogs are not raw, they are there same thing essentially as bologna. No need to cook something that's not raw.

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.

I have frozen them in the package with no problem. I like to separate them into 4 wieners and freeze together so I don't have to thaw a whole package.

Do you just use a freezer slider bag to freeze the smaller number of hot dogs? TY

Yes. Just squeeze as much air out of the bag as you can before zipping close each time.

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.

I never, personally, refreeze meat of any kind.
