I had a freezer disaster today. I went out to the garage and the freezer door was WIDE open. I cooked all the meat that was salvageable and will cook the turkey when it is done defrosting. What I'm not sure about is bread products. I have loaves of bread that were frozen and I don't think I should freeze them again. What should I do with the loaves of sandwich bread? I have a loaf I am using that has never been frozen. Should I freeze that and use the other loaves? For what? We don't go through bread that fast.

Fluffy French Toast

Submitted by: Bonnie 
This French toast recipe is different because it uses flour. I have given it to some friends and they've all liked it better than the French toast they usually make!

The bread will be fine as long as it tastes fine. Sometimes too long in the freezer or refreezing might give it a freezer burnt texture or after taste. If not, just use it. Toasting should work well.

HI, I have refroze bread and it tasted fine, no problem with it at all, but as Blender woman says its not good to keep it in freezer a long time!

If the turkey wasn't thawed out, why the rush to cook it? What was the temp of the food when you discovered the opened door? For the bread, make crumbs or refreeze it. There's really no safety issue, just quality.

The turkey was 3/4 of the way thawed. There was another one I am hoping will be okay because I am re-freezing it. So hard to decide what to toss and what will be OK to eat and not kill us.

You are all so sweet. Neither my husband or last child in the house likes french toast. But they will eat breakfast casserole. Good to know I can refreeze the bread. Even if it is stale later I can make croutons. Thank you all.

Poultry/fish tends to be more sensitive to how it is stored. It is not safe to refreeze that type of item if it started to get over 40 degrees and bacteria could have begun to multiply. Subsequent cooking won't make those items safe to eat and you can't reliably tell if meat if good by looking at it, poking it or smelling.

I would make bread crumbs,they can be kept in the freezer.
