Please help with breakfast casserole

foodus Dec 12, 2011 03:33 PM

Most recipies call for leaving over night in fridge. Does it ruin it if left for a couple of nights? Is there a casserole that one can leave in fridge for longer?

    How much longer, than overnight, do you intend to leave the casserole? What are the 'iffy' ingredients that concern you?

    I have made the basic egg-milk-bread mixture and transported it (in a cooler & Ziplock bag) to be fully assembled and baked several days later when the rest of the ingredients were added.

    Perhaps if you shared your recipe, we might be of more help.

      I have done the same that sherri has done, prepping everything a couple of days early, and then just assembling the night before. It takes the stress out of getting food on the table for a crowd!

      I'd worry about the bread breaking down too much and turning into mush. I'd also worry about it picking up flavors from the fridge, though i doubt it would spoil entirely.

        Make a version of the casserole today, put it in the fridge the way you plan to and cook it this weekend. You'll have the answer.
