ISO best way to store bread in the freezer

You sure can, double insurance, and as you use your slices three at a time, it makes it very convenient.

I buy loaves of bread that already come double wrapped and also freeze in the original wrapper. I just put the whole loaf (already sliced) in the freezer and peel off slices as needed.

You have to be careful. If you microwave for too long the bread gets hard edges and is not good eats any more.

Andy, why do you use a damp paper towel? Does that add moisture to the bread?

Same here. Most of the loaves I buy are double wrapped but if they aren't, they go in a freezer zip lock in the original wrap.

When I take a couple of slices out of the freezer, if I'm not going to use them right away I wrap them in a paper towel to help absorb any moisture and put them in a ziplock. They thaw nicely.

The loaf I bought from the café bakery isn't wrapped. They just put in a wax bag. So the freezer bags and saran wrap are going to be the answer!

It steams the bread and helps keep it moist and soft.
