Pre-made bread dough FAQ’s
If the bread is already cooked and then frozen, simply thaw the bread and then slice and eat it or you can use it in another dish. A great example is the Pumpkin Shaped Bread Bowl shown above. Just hollow out the middle, ladle in some soup, and you’ve got a meal.
The fastest way to thaw it is to let it sit, covered, on the counter for a few hours until it has risen and is at room temperature. If you won’t be using it for longer than 3 hours, wrap it in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge.
If you let the dough rise longer than a few hours on the counter, it will become warm and over rise . After that, it won’t bake correctly. You can leave it in the fridge for up to 48 hours, so there’s little risk of letting it rise too long there.
