Prep-Ahead Freezer Waffles

These prep-ahead freezer waffles are great to have on hand for a quick and easy breakfast! Simply remove frozen waffle from freezer bag and pop in toaster for a few minutes to crisp up!

These freezer waffles have been a family favorite for years! It’s my Sunday Waffles recipe, just adapted for the freezer! I make these all the time!

I love having them on hand for my kiddos to heat and eat for breakfast. Simply remove desired amount of waffles from freezer and pop in the toaster to warm and crisp up for a few minutes!

Once made I place them in a single layer on a baking sheet until cool, then pop in a freezer safe bag, removing as much air as possible and then seal it up!

One thing I like to do is I don’t cook them until they are golden brown, I remove them a few minutes beforehand when they are cooked but not browned up so when I toast them they will brown up a little more. Just like a store bought frozen waffle. They are cooked but not golden brown.


How Long Are They Good For?

Once made and cooled, place in the freezer they are good for up to 3 months. I label my bags with the use by date.


How To Reheat

Remove desired amount of waffles out of freezer bag and place in the toaster to warm and crisp up for a few minutes.

Serve warm drizzled with maple syrup or I love to serve these like waffle toast with peanut butter and sliced bananas, it’s so good!
