Keeping Waffles Warm: If you’re not going to enjoy your waffle straight out of the griddle, is to place them on a cooling rack in an even layer. Turn your oven to the “warm” setting or about 100℃. and place the fresh waffles in an even layer in the oven until ready to enjoy. Unlike pancakes, where you can toss them all on top of each other to keep them warm, waffles have a crispy outer coating that is highly desirable. If you stack them while they’re hot, they are going to create steam and quickly lose that crispiness.
Can You Freeze Waffles? YES! These waffles are great for storing in the freezer and popping straight into the toaster oven. Place the cooled waffles in a container or stasher bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Toast in toaster to defrost and toast the waffle or use the oven on grill setting.
