On the morning of serving, pull out the dish at least 30 minutes ahead of time so it can come to room temperature. Proceed with the baking directions as instructed the next morning.
  • How to store: Keep leftover casserole in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days.
  • How to freeze: Place in a freezer safe container or freezer bag and store for up to 2-3 months.
  • How to reheat: Warm up casserole in the microwave until heated through.
