How to Freeze Bread

A while ago, I bought a large loaf of udi's gluten free bread from Costco knowing full well that no one but ME would most likely be eating it ... and of course, I try not to eat a whole lot of bread ... so what's a girl to do?

Freeze it!

But, oops, had you seen the insides of my freezers at that time, you would have said no way a whole loaf was going to get squished in any of them, not to mention, I sort of wanted to protect this pricey bread from freezer burn AND be able to use a little as I go along ... not the whole loaf.

Brainstorm!

Remember those sandwich bags I picked up to freeze the chicken breast?

Remember the concept behind freezing the chicken breast individually? Oh, and freezing ground beef too?!

Yup, applied the same thought process to freezing the bread.



I simply froze 2 slices in each baggie. Folded them close and stuck them in a LARGE freezer style ziploc bag and stored that bag in the door of the garage freezer.



Sweet.

So now, when I get the urge to have toast, generally after a night of drinking unhealthy beverages, I just grab a little baggie, toss it on the counter for about 15 minutes and then toss it in the toaster while my eggs and bacon are cooking away .... 


Sweet!

Honestly, this is really a no-brainer and I would highly recommend it for those of you who have bread that goes bad in the pantry (here, here, it seems no one eats bread and then when they DO want some, it's a science project gone bad) ... I can't believe I didn't think of this before!

Do you freeze your bread?

  1. What a neat trick. I often like to make more than one loaf of bread at once to cut down on actually labour time. This is good to know!

  2. Clever trick - I will have to try as I am the only one that eats wholemeal bread- thank you stopping by Pin worthy Wednesday Jan

  3. I like freezing bread in portion size packages too - then we can just use what we need. Thank you so much for sharing this great idea and helpful post with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop.

  4. It seems gluten free bread spoils very quickly, which can lead to waste. This is a great way to preserve every slice.
