How to Freeze Waffles

We like to double the recipe so we can freeze these waffles to enjoy again. Freezing waffles saves time and money and we have all the tips and trick here.

Skip the store bought waffles and make homemade waffles.

How to Reheat Waffles

To reheat waffles, place the waffles on a microwave safe dish and reheat. Heat the waffles for about 45 seconds to 1 minutes and serve.

If you prefer to have a crispy texture, you can reheat in a toaster oven.
