DIY Frozen Pancakes and Waffles

Today's Breakfast feed the freezer meal is DIY Frozen Pancakes and Waffles that you can easily create and freeze to simplify that morning madness in your home.

DIY Freezer Pancakes and Waffles
  1. Make pancakes and/or waffles according to your box or recipe directions.  Leave pancakes and/or waffles to cool completely. ( We are a Bisquick pancake and waffle making family)
  2. Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper in  a cookie sheet
  3. Place the cooled pancakes and/or waffles on to the cookie sheet making  - do not allow them to touch each other.
  4. If freezing  multiple  layers of pancakes and/or waffles, place another sheet of wax or parchment paper  to separate the layers.
  5. Place the filled cookie sheet into your freezer. For about 4 to 5 hours allowing the pancakes and/or waffles to freeze .
  6. When the pancakes and/or waffles are completely frozen, place them in a zip loc freezer bags or freezer-safe containers.
  7. Be sure to mark the container/bag with date and contents using a permanent marker or freezer tape.

How to Reheat Pancakes and Waffles:
Oven re-heating:
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet or toaster oven tray with foil or parchment paper. Place  the  number of pancakes  needed on to  cookie sheet and cover with foil. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until they are no longer frozen and heated to desired temperature.

Microwave re-heating:
Place pancakes on to a microwave safe plate and heat on high for 1 ½ – 2 minutes or until the pancakes are  no longer frozen and are heated through. ( this does create waffles to be a little soggy)

Toaster re-heating:
Place frozen pancakes and/or waffles into toaster and toast as you would a piece of toast. You may need to toast a second time if they are not  done to your likeness.

Top with butter, syrup, jams or peanut butter. Enjoy!

I have been doing this with made from scratch pancakes and waffles for years. Once my kids tasted the real thing, they never let me go back to store bought! :)
