Filled and rolled, but not fried yet.

Of course, isn't that how the frozen ones come?

My suggestion would be to lightly fry them before freezing, and put them on wax/parchment paper to freeze. Don't freeze them raw (at least, I never did). To rejuvenate them after defrosting, finish the frying process.

I would say the opposite, at least that's how I freeze them: filled but not fried. After defrosting them I fry them and they taste fresh.

Don't they run? Once you fry them, the crepe sort of seals itself. If you don't seal them before freezing, won't they be loose and let some filling out?

No. I make sure not to over fill them. and if one or two run, I get to eat them!

OK, I was too exhausted to fry before freezing, although I thought of that Tamar - the frying does sort of seal them. So I will report back on how that worked out, and if it wasn't optimal will try frying at least a little before freezing!

Thanks so much for all the ideas.

I've always frozen them filled and uncooked. The only rule is they need to be in single layers in Ziploc bags, then sealed in Tupperware. Otherwise they freeze into a solid block. (My mother did that once.) Defrost before frying. Never had a leak (I fold in square packages, fwiw).

My mother and grandmother always did blintzes with 10 lbs of cheese at a time and froze them. Filling the pancakes is one of the first kitchen tasks I learned. They would fry and my sister and I would fill. Memories...
