Frequently Asked Questions:

            Which Cheese is best to use?

Swiss cheese is the cheese most often used. However, I have tried this with Provolone and also Mozzarella. Those two are both good and put a spin of their own on this classic.

            Can I store what is left?

You can store the leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Place the casserole into an airtight container or cover it tightly.

            Can I freeze the leftovers?

You could and then reheat in the microwave or for a short time in the oven. Be sure to wrap it tightly or place it in an airtight container.

            Can I make this in advance?

You can prepare it right up to the baking part. Instead of baking, cover it tightly and place it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Then bakes as directed.
