How to Prep the Day Before:

  • Make the casserole completely up until baking. Wrap with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight or for 24 hours. Bake as directed.

How to Prep and Freeze:

  • Follow the directions all the way up until putting in the oven. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap 3 times making sure it is airtight (make sure to label what it is on the outside!) Place in the freezer for up to 6 months or until needed.
  • To cook from frozen you can either: 
    • Place in the fridge 24 hours before needing to thaw and cook as directed below.
    • Place straight into the oven from the freezer baking for 70-90 minutes. Keep wrapped in foil until the last 30 minutes so the cheese does not burn.
