It says on my recipe to leave out the garlic if you are freezing them uncooked. I haven't ever had any left over to freeze!

Chilling them before you attempt to cook them does bind them together better: Mine do occasionally fall apart when I try to turn them over, but I don't mind mine in bits anyway!
