To make your casseroles super quick and easy, have frozen shredded chicken or beef on hand.
Make ahead: One of the best aspects of a casserole is that you can make them ahead of time. I like to make a few and have some on hand for a hot meal on a busy day. Freezing and heating casseroles is super simple. Each recipe post should have more specific tips, but in general:
Wrap the dish well. I like to wrap the casserole with plastic wrap then again with aluminum foil. Make sure you remove the plastic wrap before heating!
For easy storage and clean up use a disposable pan to freeze the casserole in. You can freeze a casserole in a glass pan, but be sure that you thaw it completely before putting it into the hot oven or the glass can shatter.
Cheesy Topping: Frozen cheese sometimes doesn’t melt as well So I like to add another layer of freshly grated cheese before placing it in the oven.
Browning: If your casserole seems to be browning too quickly, but the inside isn’t baked yet simply place a tent of foil over the top of the casserole.
Thaw, in the fridge, overnight
