How To Store The Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

Leftover casseroles are perfect for breakfast or even lunch. You can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. This casserole can also be stored in the freezer. I like to separate it into smaller portions when I freeze it. This way it is easy to take out one slice at a time. The casserole will last in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Shortly before serving, remove from refrigerator and allow time to come to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350 F. Cook for 25-30 minutes until casserole is heated.
