Q:

Why are there seven hot dogs in a Hebrew National package?

A:

Hebrew National hot dogs come seven to a package because meat has traditionally been sold by weight, specifically by the pound, not by a numerical count. The Hebrew National package of seven hot dogs weighs one pound.

Other Hebrew National products are also sold in packages that weigh one pound. Its "bun-length" hot dogs, which are a little longer than the standard ones, come in a package of six. Its quarter-pound hot dogs come, not surprisingly, in a package of four. Many other brands of hot dogs come eight or ten to a pound. Hebrew National sells all-beef hot dogs which it markets as kosher; however, not all kosher-certifying authorities agree with this assessment.

    How do I cook frozen hot dogs?

    A:

    Hot dogs can be cooked straight out of the freezer. Because they are fully cooked already, no food safety issues arise when cooking them frozen. Cooking frozen meats takes approximately 50 percent longer than cooking the same meat fresh. Sometimes, hot dogs cooked right out of the freezer have a slightly different taste, but this difference can be camouflaged with condiments.
