Notes

Freezer Meal Instructions:

To Freeze:
Bake bread as directed in recipe. Let cool completely. Once cool, cut in slices. Place in freezer safe bag or container. Store for up to 3 months.

To Prepare:
Remove desired number of slices from freezer. Warm them in the refrigerator overnight (great if you’re thawing the whole loaf) or for a few seconds in the microwave (perfect for just a slice or two).
