Yes, both store-bought and homemade bread freeze well. To ensure optimal freshness, wrap the bread in two layers of plastic wrap and place it inside a resealable plastic freezer bag before freezing.

For homemade bread, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap before placing it in the freezer. For rolls and buns, place them in a plastic bag prior to freezing to prevent them from getting hard.

Freezing bread effectively preserves its freshness, quality, and texture, often resulting in a taste similar to fresh bread once thawed. Freezing is a great option to extend bread's shelf life if you won't consume it quickly.

Pre-wrapped store-bought bread can be frozen in its original packaging if it's airtight. For homemade or bakery bread, use an appropriate wrapping method based on how long you plan to store the bread before eating.
