HOW TO REHEAT EASY TWICE BAKED POTATO CASSEROLE

You can reheat Easy Twice Baked Potato Casserole either in the oven or microwave. For the oven use the temperature of 350 F. Place the frozen potatoes in an oven-safe dish, and heat for 35-45, this will depend on the portion size you are reheating.

I personally like to have the portions thawed so it lessens the warming time to 20-25 minutes in the oven.

Reheating in the microwave once it has thawed. Reheat for 3-5 minutes, depending on your microwave, stirring the dish halfway thru the heating time.
