Throw it away and use fresh products. Even in a sauce, the flavor will not be up to par. Although freezer burn can take the taste out of food it is not dangerous to eat. Use herbs, garlic powder or onion powder, meat marinades to bring up as much as the flavor as you can. This should only be done if the person can't afford a lot of food or they are just eating it themselves. Don't use this on guests!
