Reheating Waffles

I like to double or even triple my waffle and pancake batters and cook them all up at once. I then freeze them and heat them as needed.

We used to just put them in the toaster to reheat. However, with three kids this takes awhile, by the time the 3rd child’s waffles are done the 1st child’s are cold. We like to eat all together, so I have found that it works best just heat up my oven and place them right on the rack.

Setting them on the rack helps keep them crisp. I do it about 350 degrees for 7 to 8 minutes. This will vary by oven though. (Yes, I know this is not very energy efficient but I figure using my toaster for 10 minutes in order to heat all the waffles up is not either.)

Doing this has made breakfast time much easier at our house.

How do you reheat your waffles and pancakes?

    Oh, that’s a great idea! Thank you for sharing.

  2. I’m wondering what the best way to store the waffles after you make them all. Without having them all be soggy. Do you put something in between each waffle when you store them in the freezer? Any tips would be great!

    • To store waffles I lay them out on a sheet pan covered in wax paper in the freezer for a couple hours. Once they’re frozen you can store them in zip top bags with no worries

  3. I tried this, this morning…my toaster oven on 350…..really watch them (to see how long in your oven), if it’s too long then you’ll need to start over, because you don’t want dried out waffles either. My second try was better 😉 Thanks!

    Your waffles in photo appear to be belgian. For tradition waffles that are thinner should oven temp or time be reduced or both? Today my waffle burned at 350 for 8 min.

  5. I plan to try the oven method. The method I have tried (and that was not satisfactory) is putting them back in the waffle iron. They came out slightly flattened and shriveled.

  6. So I am 12 years old and my class is doing a “snack day” but I don’t know if this is the best option? Any other suggestions? Please I need this by tomorrow or I will screw this whole thing up! I can’t let my class down!!!
