Breakfast Casserole FAQS
Can you freeze breakfast casseroles?
Do you cover breakfast casserole when baking?
I bake this breakfast casserole uncovered.
Can you reheat a breakfast casserole?
When it’s time to reheat, allow the dish to come to room temperature before putting it into a hot oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a leftover egg-, potato- or meat-based breakfast casserole with a piece of foil so the moisture will not escape and to ensure even heating.
