Make-ahead Casserole Tips
When it comes to making a make-ahead dish, casseroles are at the top of the easiest to make list. Casseroles make great family breakfasts, dinners, or holiday pot-luck dishes.
Tips for preparing a make-ahead casserole:
- Most casseroles can be made ahead of time. Put all the ingredients together and chill in the refrigerator before cooking. Take out 20-30 minutes before putting in the oven.
- Give your casserole more flavor by topping it with something special before baking. For example, buttered bread crumbs, shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, or even French fried onions making a great casserole topping.
- If you are preparing a casserole for a potluck or dinner party, use a disposable foil pan so you can leave any leftovers at the party.
- When transporting a casserole, insulate the casserole inside kitchen towels. Wrap it around the casserole to keep warm if you don’t already have an insulated container. Casseroles are good for 2 hours at room temperature.
