How do I store leftover casserole?

When storing your leftover casserole, there are a few key steps to keep in mind.

First, ensure that your casserole has cooled down to room temperature before placing it in the fridge or freezer. This helps prevent bacteria growth and keeps your food fresh.

Next, transfer the casserole into an airtight container or wrap it tightly with plastic wrap. This will prevent moisture from seeping and keep your casserole from drying out.

Lastly, label and date your container or plastic wrap to help you keep track of how long it’s been stored.

These simple tips will not only help keep your casserole fresh and tasty but also prevent food waste in your household.

Okay, so this recipe just gave me another idea on what to do with my thanksgiving turkey leftovers. I will save this recipe right now and have my day after thanksgiving taken care of. Ooops! Thanksgiving is fast approaching, make sure you buy healthy turkey. Those that are antibiotic-free, hormone-free and humanely-raised. Don't serve your family with a dose of a medicine that they don't need.
