    Default Are frozen franks any good?

    I read the thread about hot dogs, and decided to get me some Nathan's.
    However, it would take me several weeks to eat a package of them. Does
    freezing them ruin them?

    I never met a frozen dog I did not like :-)

    Nope, freezing doesn't ruin them, but frozen dawgs only have like a
    three month shelf life so don't forget about them. Tube steak
    contains plenty salt and fat, they don't freeze long term any better
    than ice cream.

    Hot dogs freeze just fine!
    I'll freeze them or sausages in portions.

    Agreed! I keep my hot dogs in the freezer. I can't buy less than 6 and 2
    are usually enough for one person. They don't have much texture to ruin.

    Go right ahead and freeze 'em. Freezing hot dogs doesn't do a bit of harm
    to them. I do it all the time.

    They will freeze just fine. I don't buy packaged hot dogs because I like
    natural casings on both those and sausages, but I do buy in quantities that
    are to much to eat at one time. n freeze them laid out on plastic wrap on a
    baking sheet then covered with plastic wrap. When frozen solid, I toss them
    in a freezer zip-loc bag.

    No, not at all. I suggest you wrap them up individually in plastic wrap,
    then put them in a plastic bag before freezing so they're easy to get
    apart. If you freeze the entire package in its original container, then
    it will be a pain to separate the hot dogs when you want to cook them.

    Not much to ruin in the average hot dog Wrap them airtight and use
    within three months. Cook from frozen.

    Baking sheet freezing (if you have the space) is one of the most
    efficient ways to make frozen portions. :-)

    Not in my experience. I have been buying Hebrew National four-packs
    at Costco for the same price as two packages at my local grocery store.
    I freeze them and use as needed. We don't notice any difference in
    flavor or texture.

    Again, I read your post before I saw who posted it and knew this
    just *had* to be Sheldon passing out more of his erroneous wisdom.

    But in this case it's true. Fat doesn't freeze all that well and retain
    any semblance of 'freshness'.

    They can be frozen longer, but suffer from freezer burn.
