How to Freeze Brioche Bread/Buns
While it is pretty easy to freeze brioche bread, the most important thing to note is that it needs to be packaged properly before storing in the freezer.
This will help to maximize the freshness of the bread/buns and also reduces the chance of it absorbing any weird smells that may be present in the freezer.
- If you have freshly baked brioche bread, let it cool before attempting to package it for freezing.
- If the brioche is store bought and in its own packaging, it can be placed directly in the freezer
- For homemade brioche, once cooled, you should wrap it multiple times, with plastic wrap.
