We froze tomatoes by accident in the refrigerator. Can I slice them for use on hamburgers?

I think they would be mushy. They would be great for cooking.

Frozen tomatoes work best in soups or stews or even a hearty chili. Or, it you have some jalepano and green peppers you can also make a quick salsa which would be yummy on your burgers! There are tons of easy recipes for salsa for any taste from mild to ! Makes me hungry just to think about it!!

I'm afraid you will have to save these for sauce or a stew as they will definitely be mushy.

  • There are different opinions about whether it is a good idea to freeze tomatoes - some say okay but others say the taste is not good.
  • Examples:
  • To sum it up, canned tomatoes don't taste like fresh tomatoes, but at least they taste like cooked tomatoes. Frozen then thawed tomatoes don't taste neither like fresh, nor like cooked. They are just not that good to eat. ... The taste is also improved by the canning process, but not by freezing.
  • Then another opinion:
  • While tomatoes can certainly be frozen as a method of preservation, their texture, as you recently discovered, isn't quite the same once they thaw. Unfortunately there's no way to save the fresh, just-picked taste. However, frozen tomatoes do work well in sauces and stews.
  • As you simmer the sauce or stew all that extra water will evaporate, leaving you with fresh tomato taste. Alternatively, you could consider cooking the tomatoes into a tomato sauce, and then freezing that.
