How do you reheat leftover casserole?

If the casserole is meant to be served warm, you can heat it low and slow in the oven. Or, heat individual portions in the microwave.

Can you freeze casseroles before baking them?

You’ll want to check the instructions for individual recipes. However, most casseroles can be frozen before baking. To do so, cover them tightly with plastic wrap followed by aluminum foil, and transfer them to the freezer until you’re ready to cook.

You’ll want to avoid freezing dairy-heavy casseroles as the taste and texture will change after thawing.

Are casseroles the same things as hot dishes?

All hot dishes are casseroles, but not all casseroles are hot dishes. This is because hot dish recipes contain specific ingredients including starch, meat, a canned soup, and a vegetable mix that are layered together and baked. However, casseroles have a looser definition, including a variety of ingredients mixed and baked together.
