  • plastic wrap
  • Zip lock type bag
  • Sharpie marker
  • freezer


  • 1 Hot Dog Bun


  • Wrap the hot dog bun in plastic wrap and place it inside of a freezer safe zip top gallon size bag. Repeat this process for each hot dog bun.
  • Squeeze as much air out of the bag as possible.
  • Write today’s date, “Hot Dog Buns” and Use By (date 3 months from now) on the bag with a sharpie marker.
  • Place into the freezer for use next time.



  • Wrap the buns individually and then place them in a freezer safe bag, this helps to protect the buns from the harsh conditions in the freezer.
  • Make sure to use a freezer safe bag for the buns! A typical storage bag doesn’t offer enough protection in the cold cold deep freeze!
  • Freeze the buns as soon as you know that you have left overs. Stale buns that are frozen will still be stale when they come out of the freezer.
  • To thaw the hot dog buns, simply lay them out on the counter the day you plan to use them or use one of the methods I discuss above.
