Freezer-friendly Breads

Becky Luigart-Stayner
Get five top-rated recipes plus freezing tips.

Baking homemade breads ahead of time and freezing makes pulling together a wholesome meal easier―and faster.

First, prepare the bread according to recipe directions, remove from the oven, and allow to cool. Store cooled rolls in a heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag or wrap breads in heavy-duty foil. Most breads can be frozen for up to one month.

When you're ready to use them, allow the bread to thaw in the refrigerator. Remove from bag and loosely rewrap the rolls in fresh foil. If desired, reheat in a preheated 300-degree oven for five minutes or until warm.
