Storing, Freezing and Reheating

Storing: To store leftovers, place them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.

Freezing: If you want to freeze them, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and flash freeze. Once they are frozen solid, transfer them into a freezer-safe bag or container. They will last in the freezer for up to two months.

Reheating: To reheat, warm them in the oven at 350°F for 15-20 minutes or until they are warmed through. You can also pan-fry them in a skillet over medium-low heat until warmed through.
