The best way to freeze and thaw baguette

 Love a baguette and want to ensure you have one on hand.  Freeze it and here’s how to ensure it tastes like it was just taken out of the oven

 
You’ll recognize a good baguette by its signature deep-golden crust, and it’s chewy, soft interior. For all its perfection when it comes to texture, it does have one major flaw: it’s really only at its best if enjoyed on the day it’s made and purchased. If you’re lucky — and not a purist! — You may get another half day out of it, but that’s really the most you’ll ever get out of a fresh baguette.

To freeze your baguette, cut it in half crosswise and tightly wrap in aluminum foil.The fresher the baguette the better the results so if you can score a warm-from-the-oven baguette from the store, do so! To thaw, preheat your oven to 450F. Once its reached that temperature, turn your oven off, and bake the unwrapped bread in the oven until it is thawed, which takes about 12 minutes (depending on the size of your bread).
