We have a problem with buying an overaBUNdance of hot dog buns! Usually we stick them in the freezer and save them for later, but they never really thaw very well. They fall apart and get hard and crusty. So, we decided we should use them up with our every day foods we put on bread/buns. Hamburgers in the shape of a hot dog, deli dogs (deli sandwich meat), PB & J dog (haven't tried this yet), etc...we just need to get rid of them!!! It is an adjustment making your mind accept the shape of what you are eating, but they taste just the same!
