Once the waffles are completely frozen put them in an airtight freezer safe container. The waffles will stay good for up to 4 months.
REHEAT. To reheat refrigerated or frozen waffles preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 10-15 minutes or until hot. You can also heat them up in a toaster or the microwave.
