If you've ever had hot dog buns left over from a barbecue, you know how irritating it can be when they go bad after a few days. If you shop for sales or in bulk, you may not be able to use a 24-pack of buns before the expiration date. If you freeze your hot dog buns properly, you can separate them and thaw them out as necessary.

Skill level:

Things you need

  1. 1

    Separate the hot dog buns by two's or three's for easy unwrapping and thawing.

  2. 2

    Wrap the bread in plastic bags. It's best to use more than one to prevent freezer burn.

  3. 3

    Seal the wrapped hot dog buns in either a vacuum-sealed bag or a zip-close bag to retain the bread's freshness.

  4. 4

    Place the wrapped buns in the freezer. Place them where they won't get squished until they are thoroughly frozen.

Tips and warnings

  • Freeze bread while it is at its freshest. If you freeze the bread when you first buy it, rather than right before the expiration date, it will taste better when thawed.
  • Be careful not to freeze buns fresh from the oven. This avoids the risk of mould or soggy bread.
