Leftover grilled dogs, what to do?

I have 40 leftover, grilled hot dogs. I'm afraid if I freeze and try to save, they will be more rubbery than already. Any ideas ? Thanks !

Unless you're donating them or feeding a very big group, you'll have to either freeze them or toss them.

hi granniero
if you've still got them,make up a big batch of marinara sauce,let it cool,chop up as many of the dogs as you want,mix into the marinara then freeze in portion sizes.the acids in the tomatoes will tenderise the dogs & you've got quick & easy meals with pasta,fries,mashed potato etc etc.
the rest? i dunno!

You could always host a hot dog eating competition.

I was going to recommend baked beans. Steve, you beat me to it.

Also, any dish you can make with steamed or boiled hot dogs wold be fine, even if you freeze them before using them. Think a big batch of sour kraut and hot dogs, all steamed together and served up on a good bun, or added to a pasta soup. The grilled flavor will just add to the overall flavor of the dish.

Freeze some of them and use some in a pot of pinto beans.Freezing shouldn't hurt them any.

Use some to make Frank's grandmother's "ham salad". There you have it-- Frank Salad. ( Puns intended)

Have an early Cinco de Mayo party. Slice them in coins, wrap them in a tortilla, top with baked beans, diced onion & shredded cheese.

Slice in coins & add to cooked macaroni and cheese, or omelettes with green peppers, shredded cheddar cheese, and onions.

Mock low country boil. Boil some corn on the cob & red potatoes. Toss your dogs in at end end to heat through.

That's all I got.
