Can You Freeze an Omelette
Can you freeze an omelette? Yes, you can. It is pretty easy to do and you get great results. The good thing about freezing an omelette is that it holds up pretty well in the freezer and you can have it as a quick go to meal or if you like to prepare your dishes ahead of time and don’t want to deal with the hassle of making something for breakfast.
Why Freeze Omelettes?
It kinda makes sense to freeze an omelette if you are often in the rush in the mornings, with no time to make breakfast. This egg dish holds up well in the freezer and when it comes to reheating, it only takes a couple of minutes, so it is a good on the go meal.
You will find that you can have frozen omelettes for breakfast or lunch. Freezing this dish is really about convenience.
How To Freeze an Omelette
It is a really quick process to freeze an omelet and will only take a couple minutes of your time.
- Make your omelet with all the ingredients that you love. Once finished, let it cool properly before we place it in the freezer.
- Once the omelette is fully cooled, you can wrap it with plastic wrap. Make sure to give it enough layers and ensure that the egg dish is fully covered.
- Take the wrapped omelette and place inside a freezer Ziploc bag or container.
- Use a marker and write the date on the freezer bag, so that you have a good idea when it was placed in the freezer. (An omelette can be stored in the freezer for 3 months, but it could even be stored longer)
Thawing/Reheating Frozen Omelettes
Ideally, you don’t have to thaw out your frozen omelet if you are going to eat it. I touched on that in my article on reheating omelettes. The process is quite simple and you can either reheat it with the microwave or the oven. The guide goes into much more detail, so check it out for the step-by-step process.
