Freezing Bread

I like to bake bread, but it's hard for the three of us to get through an entire loaf before it goes stale, especially since homemade bread doesn't last as long as store-bought.  But that's okay, because bread freezes incredibly well!

After the loaf of bread is completely cool, wrap it in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil.  You can pre-slice the bread, too, as long as you wrap it up well.  Then pop it in the freezer.  When you're ready to use it, let it thaw on the counter.  If you want to defrost it faster, remove the plastic wrap and put it in a slow oven for a while.  (For half a loaf, I usually have good luck with putting it in the oven and then preheating it to 350, then immediately turning it off.  Then just leave it in there until it's thawed.)

Then it's just a matter of not eating it all myself before dinner.

    I do this with my homemade bread all the time! I usually pre-slice it...wrap...then stick in a freezer bag rather than foil. When I make quick breads I usually just wrap in plastic and then in foil then take a sharpie marker and write what kind it is so that it ends up not being a mystery loaf! :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for stopping by and visiting today! :)

    Yes, the sharpie marker is essential! Nothing like finding a long-forgotten, foil-wrapped object and wondering what on earth it is...
