  1. The baking instructions are the same for baking the day of and also after it’s frozen…..that can’t be right. Please advise!!

  2. Hi there, is this cooked from frozen on the serving day if you’ve chosen to freeze it? I think that might be why Stephanie is confused, as the cooking time on the same day cooking and frozen one are the same. Does it need to be thawed first? Thanks

  3. I’ve read through all three sets of directions. The confusion here is that the cooking directions are the same whether cooking from fresh or frozen. There is no mention of needing to thaw before cooking, so the assumption is those directions are from freezer to over. If this is not the case, you should indicate in your recipe to thaw the night before or even better provide directions for cooking from frozen which is what many busy parents are looking for. Thank you.

    1. On the WordPress side the thaw directions do not appear – one of the benefits to being a member is that you get a thaw sheet to help with all of the little things like this. If you are a member and get your thaw directions, labels etc – this is a flaw in our current system that we are working to update 🙂

      To answer your question – yes, this should be thawed the night before in the fridge.
