How Far Ahead Can I Make this Casserole?

Indeed, this casserole is very versatile. You can bake and then put in the refrigerator and heat up as you need it. Alternatively, you can prepare a day or two ahead of time and keep in the fridge, wrapped up tight and then bake when you need it.

Otherwise, you can prepare it and freeze it for up to three months in an air tight container. Pull it out the night before you need it to thaw and then cook.

  1. I want to make this for Christmas morning. It looks like a great make ahead, you said it can be made the night before. Busy on Christmas Eve Day. Do you think I can make it on Sunday to bake off Christmas morning Tuesday. Thanks 😄
