How to Store and Freeze the Sweet Potato Casserole with Bacon
Big families (like mine) love Twice Baked Sweet Potato Casserole with Bacon. The best reason is that the casserole dish has a lid that goes on top of it, which makes for easy storing. It is good to keep this way in the refrigerator for at least two days. If you have leftovers, you can typically heat them back up in the oven for a few minutes and have them for lunch the next day.
If you do not want to keep the casserole in the dish when storing it in the fridge, you can put it in a food storage container and keep it in the refrigerator for two days. You can also put it in the freezer and keep it there for up to two months. If you chose to make this side, let me know what you think. Leave a comment below!
