Breakfast Pancake Tip

My boys love pancakes!  BUT, I hate making the pancake mess every morning.  Especially, because we had to be out of our house around 8:30 am on the mornings that Nathan had preschool.  About a year ago, I was on the phone with a friend, and I was sort of complaining about my little dilemma.  She then said, “why don’t you just freeze some?”

Why didn’t I think of that?  I generally think that I have pretty good common sense, but apparently not with certain things.  How many times have you just thrown a bowl in the sink that still has some batter in it?  I know I sure did, before I started freezing them.


Now, when I make pancakes, I always mix up extra batter and make us pancakes to last a week or two.  Because, it’s just the two boys that eat them I will freeze them 3 or 4 pancakes per stack.  I wrap the individual stacks in Press N’ Seal.

After all the individual stacks are wrapped, I just put all of them in a Gallon Freezer Ziploc bag and stick it in the freezer!

It seriously makes breakfast so much easier!  I just pull out one stack at a time, microwave them for about a minute or so and then serve them up!  I know it’s not genius or anything, but I figured if I didn’t think about this simple idea, then at least one other person out there may benefit from this little tip!

  • I am really wanting to learn how to cook good things and store in the freezer. I am a complete idiot and worry so much about not doing it properly (the storing, the thawing, the expiration 🙂 ) I am totally going to try this!

  • I have been doing this for years. I separate mine with wax paper or saran wrap and put them in a gallon ziplock freezer too. So nice to pull out and pop in the microwave. In fact, I just fixed pancakes tonight and feed my oldest son, 2 of the grand kids and one girlfriend. My son took the rest of them home so I had none to freeze. (-:

    • I freeze mine also but leave them a little undercooked so I can put them in the toaster instead of the microwave. It makes the outside crisp just a little and heats them all the way through!

  • We do this. I also fry up a huge batch of bacon (2 pounds) and freeze it. Great for breakfast, salads and sandwiches. Plus it’s cheaper than the store bought ready to eat bacon.
