Can you freeze a Pancake Breakfast Sandwich?

Yes! You just wrap them in an airtight container and freeze them for up to 3 months. Once you’re ready to eat, you can set them in the fridge the night before to thaw.

How to reheat a McGriddle sandwich

If you didn’t set them out, defrost them in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute. Then wrap them in a paper towel to finish heating perfectly. If you did thaw them in the fridge, just start with the paper towel step.
