Stephanie Young, chef and founder of Camping Cooks, told Insider that the secret to perfectly cooked frozen waffles is heating them up as quickly as possible. 

“The main thing to keep in mind is that frozen waffles are already cooked,” Young said. “The goal is to heat them up quickly so they get crispy, not soggy.” 

This means that whatever cooking method you choose, your waffles should go straight from the freezer to the heat source. Allowing them to thaw or cooking them slowly may result in a soft, floppy waffle.
