Jimmy Dean Casserole Bites FAQ: 

How long can you keep Jimmy Dean Casserole Bites in the fridge?

In the unlikely event that you have leftovers, or in the case of meal prepping these in advance, you can keep them in the fridge for up to 4 days. Just make sure they are stored in an air-tight container. As an alternative, you can also keep them in a resealable zipper bag like a Ziploc bag in the freezer.

What is the best way to reheat this recipe?

The air fryer is a great suggestion for reheating these, as it will help them crisp back up. Place them in the air fryer at 300 degrees for three to four minutes, until they are heated through. If that isn’t an option, you can always use an oven, just increase the temperature to 325 for 5-7 minutes. If you need something faster than that, wrap it in a damp paper towel and place it in the microwave for 90 seconds.
