Broccoli Casserole: A Cheesy Wonder for the Whole Family
Can I freeze broccoli casserole leftovers?
Absolutely. Broccoli out of all vegetables loves to be frozen. Well, it doesn't mind it as it doesn't get too mushy when thawed, though it all depends on how you prepare it.
To freeze a broccoli bake, first, wait until it cools completely. Freezing warm casserole will make it watery and mushy. Once it's cold, simply freeze it in your casserole dish. It's best to have a dish that is both freezer-proof and oven-proof. Alternatively, you can transfer your broccoli casserole into portion size containers, however, as it will have mushroom and soup sauce it may not turn out to be as presentable as the "original" casserole.
Now the secret is to wrap the dish very well. Cover it with plastic wrap and then a layer of foil. For extra protection, add into a freezer bag (not necessary, but advisable). Then put it in a freezer.
When you want to enjoy your cheesy broccoli again, leave it in the fridge overnight to thaw and bake it the next day. This will prevent the meal from burning as this way it will heat more evenly.
